‘Almost feel like you leave us no choice,’ says Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk as he confirms second season of the popular Netflix show

Squid Game fans rejoice, as another season of the popular show is on its way on Netlflix. Creator Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed the plans at a screening and Q&A in Los Angeles for the Korean drama. The series, although criticised for its violence has become a phenomenon and become the most-watched show of the streaming giant.

During the Q&A, Hwang told the Associated Press on the Monday night red carpet, “There’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice! But I will say there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently.”

However, he refrained from giving any details but said that the lead actor Lee Jung-jae will reprise his role of Seong Gi-hun and said, “I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen. So I will promise you this, Gi-hun will come back. He will do something for the world.”

Speaking to another online portal in late September, Hwang had said that he would consider employing a writers’ room and multiple directors if he were to create a Season 2 of Squid Game. He had said, “I don’t have well developed plans for Squid Game 2.  It is quite tiring just thinking about it. But if I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone. I’d consider using a writers’ room and would want multiple experienced directors.”
