Here is everything that has been revealed about season 2 of the hit series Squid Game.
Currently, Squid Game is still the world’s most popular TV show with the most viewers on Netflix. The incredible success of the Korean survival series has made global viewers constantly ask for Squid Game to be renewed for a second season. The world established in Squid Game is inherently large with numerous details to further exploit, and Squid Game season 1 also has an open ending, so developing another season is totally possible. Here’s all the information about Squid Game season 2, including its airtime and possible storylines.
Is Squid Game season 2 officially confirmed yet?
It was not until recently, that Squid Game director Hwang Dong Hyuk officially confirmed that season 2 of the series would be produced. This is not surprising news to the audience, considering all the amazing results that Squid Game has achieved around the world. However, the pressure put on the production crew has now increased significantly as they have to continue the “unprecedented” success of season 1.
Besides, Netflix has a long-term plan to work with director Hwang in the future but not necessarily in Squid Game 2.
When can Squid Game season 2 be released?
Even if season 2 of Squid Game is immediately in the works, audiences should not expect the film to return fairly soon. The first season of the Squid Game took two years to complete. If it is similar, at least until 2023, the audience can enjoy Squid Game season 2. Of course, there is a high possibility that the audience will have to wait much longer.
What will the content of Squid Game 2 be like?
Although he did not reveal any details about the future of Squid Game‘s content, director Hwang did reveal the image of season 2 in his mind to the Hollywood Reporter. According to him, interesting fan ideas can act as inspiration for Squid Game 2 content.
“There was a lot of pressure for season two even when I was in Korea, so I have felt that pressure for a long time. We get on YouTube and see people that have already written season two and season three for us. “Coming here and really seeing how well-received the show is and how much the fans want it.” – the director shared
Besides, the director affirmed that he wanted to go deeper into the relationship between Jun Ho and In Ho when one was a police officer and the other was the “frontman” of Squid Game. Director Hwang shared: “I think the issue with police officers is not just an issue in Korea. I see it on the global news that the police force can be very late on acting on things—there are more victims or a situation gets worse because of them not acting fast enough. This was an issue that I wanted to raise. Maybe in season two I can talk about this more.”
Director Hwang even expressed his ambition to exploit the mysterious “recruiter” character played by Gong Yoo.
“I want to add to the story of the man in charge of recruiting, playing paper smash with Gi Hun in the first episode. And of course, we get to explore more of Gi Hun’s story when he’s not on the plane, and what he’ll do with the game’s creators. I don’t know yet, but there’s a lot to tell in season 2.”
In the latest sharing with the AP news agency, director Hwang “promised” that “Gi Hun will do something for the world” – that is, he will directly confront the organization that created Squid Game, won’t he?
What super-logical theories are fans making for “Squid Game Season 2”?
As Director Hwang said, many fans have shared extremely “crazy” but reasonable and logical theories for “Squid Game Season 2”. Here are some surprising ideas that received the most approval for the second part of the series. Who knows whether director Hwang will “borrow” them again or not?
– Gi Hun will infiltrate the Squid Game as a red-suited soldier (like police officer Jun Ho). Then he will find Jun Ho on the island and they can join forces to fight against the shady Squid Game organization.
– Gi Hun will follow in the footsteps of the “manager”, be persuaded and become the leader of the next season. The fact that no one can escape the fierce loop of reality is something the drama often reflects.
– Sae Byeok’s younger brother can participate in the Squid Game to learn about his sister’s death. After a few years, this boy will be fully qualified to take part in this deadly game.
– Season 2 can revolve around a Squid Game tournament in the past, when the new “manager” In Ho came in and won. As such, this season will be able to explain the motive of this surprising character.
