You’ve probably heard of Squid Game (or ) unless you’ve been living under a rock. Squid Game, the most exhilarating show of the year so far on Netflix, has also become the streaming service’s most unexpected viral sensation. Participants compete in a Battle Royale-style game, featuring multiple rounds based on traditional Korean and global children’s games (like Tug of War and Red Light, Green Light).
The nine-episode streaming series follows a group of strangers as they battle it out in a deadly war for survival, with the winner taking home a 45.6 billion prize. It’s not a novel notion, but filmmaker Hwang Dong-hyuk executes it with a distinct flair.
So, will there be a Squid Game 2?
The Squid Game Season 2 release date is as follows.
Has Squid Game season 2 been announced?
Unfortunately, no, and director Hwang Dong-hyuk recently stated that he is not in a rush to create another season, especially given that he began writing Squid Game in 2008.
“I don’t have solid plans for Squid Game 2,” he told Variety. “It’s exhausting simply thinking about it. But if I had to do it, I would not do it alone. I’d think about using a writers’ room, and I’d want many experienced directors.”
When will Squid Game Season 2 come out?
Netflix hasn’t said whether or not it will renew its most successful Korean drama ever, despite the fact that it has only been 15 days since it premiered. The streamer normally takes a few months to renew its shows in the United States, and there isn’t enough information on their overseas renewals to see whether there is a pattern.
Squid Game, on the other hand, would not be the first Korean sitcom to be renewed by Netflix. Kingdom, a historical zombie drama, and Love Alarm, a high school romance, both got second seasons this year, and Kingdom even got a spinoff film.
If the programme is revived, fans would have to wait a long time for Season 2. Squid Game was initially revealed in 2019, and it took two years to complete production. Season 2 would most likely not come until early 2023, even under the most optimistic timeframe.
The Season 1 last episode has a setup for season 2
The nine-episode series chronicles the Game from start to finish, with the main character, divorced father Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), winning the game after his close friend turned rival Cho Sang-woo (Park Hae-soo) makes self-sacrifice. Gi-hun refuses to spend the award money for over a year due to his shock and anguish. He eventually discovers that Oh Il-nam (Oh Young-soo), the old man he befriended and deceived during the Game, was the mastermind behind it all.
Gi-hun realizes that the Game is still continuing on after Oh Il-nam dies. He bumps across the Salesman (Gong Yoo) recruiting a new player while on his way to the airport to see his daughter. Rather of boarding the plane, Gi-hun walks away, determined to put an end to the Game once and for all.
The vengeful conclusion leaves the door open for a sequel, which will follow Gi-hun as he battles the Game’s wealthy masterminds. Though Netflix has announced nothing, the show is categorized on the platform as a seasonal series, not a limited one, showing that a Season 2 is possible. Netflix has a history of multi-season Korean dramas. Kingdom, a medieval zombie story, and Love Alarm, a high school romance, both received two seasons.
Season 2 would likely have an entirely new cast.
Squid Game’s Battle Royale nature means that many of the cast members will not be returning for a second season (unless they appear in a flashback sequence). If the show is renewed for a second season, Gi-hun is likely to return to try to put an end to the game.
All of this season’s participants have died, with the exception of Gi-hun, including fan favourite Kang Sae-byeok (Jung Ho-yeon) and the secret mastermind Oh Il-nam. Whatever path the new season takes, whether it’s a new Game or a plan to shut down the entire business, Squid Game will require a new cast of characters.
Among the various Season 2 ideas, fans speculate that a character other than Gi-hun may return. During the first season, police detective Hwang Jun-ho (Wi Ha-joon) investigated the game from the inside while hunting for his missing brother. Jun-ho was last seen tumbling down a cliff into the ocean after being shot by the Front Man, and it turned out that his brother had been the Game’s masked Front Man the entire time.
We never see Jun-body Ho’s being pulled from the ocean, despite the fact that he was left for dead. The cop might have got it out alive, but he’ll be even more determined to put an end to the deadly Game once and for all. If that’s the case, a fresh season might see him partner up with Gi-hun.
It’s a long shot, but this is a Korean drama. Resurrections are a common factor. Aside from that, we should expect to see some fresh faces.
What will season 2 story?
If there is a second season, it will most likely focus on Gi-efforts hun’s to bring the game to a close. Who knows how he’ll handle the situation. Will it be a public quest, like Katniss Everdeen’s, or will he play his cards quietly to achieve his goal? Anything could happen at this time.
