Big News: ‘Squid Game’ Season 2 Is Actually Happening

If you’re looking for a show that is absolutely horrifying in its concept, you probably found great success with Netflix’s Squid Game, a K-drama that follows a bunch of people in desperate need of money who decide to enter a game in which they play children’s games…to the death, for a chance at roughly $38 million. It’s like The Hunger Games but set in the normal world instead of a dystopian situation, with adults instead of teenagers, and the game has a whopping 456 contestants. Wild (and depressing).

The show spent a LOT of weeks in the top spot on Netflix, which means lots of fans have been dying to know whether there will be a second season. Here’s what we know about whether we should expect any more episodes of this murderous show. (There are spoilers ahead, btw.)

Has Netflix confirmed a second season yet?

Actually, yes! And it’s officially official—like, the top dogs at Netflix have given it the go ahead. According to Variety, when asked if there would be a second season of the hit show during an earnings call this week, Ted Sarandos, aka the co-CEO and chief content officer at Netflix, said, “Absolutely. The Squid Game universe has just begun.” Eeek!

These comments only solidify what creator of the show Hwang Dong-hyuk said in the fall about a second season happening. “So, 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,” said Hwang Dong-hyuk to the Associated Press. “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. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen.”

This is not surprising news, TBH. The show did incredibly well on Netflix. Like, it’s the most popular show in Netflix history. There aren’t a lot of Netflix shows that are that popular and get canceled after one season. A date for season 2 is still TBD at the moment.

Which cast members would return for a second season?

Well, the vast majority of the main characters are dead…so maybe no one? It’s hard to say! We have basically no info about this yet.

Do we know literally anything about season 2?

Like, no, but we’ll update this post as soon as any information becomes available.
