Squid Game Creator Reveals New Details About Season 2 You Don’t Want to Miss

·2 min read

Squid Game season two has been given the green light.

Five months after Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos unofficially confirmed the thriller would return for season two, the streamer announced for real that the show is coming back with a letter from writer Hwang Dong-hyuk. "It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life," he wrote. "But it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever."

Dong-hyuk shared that he's excited to once again work with the show's breakout stars like actors Lee Byung-hun and Lee Jung-jae. Plus, he plans to introduce Cheol-su, the boyfriend of Young-hee (she's never named in the series, but, according to THR, she's the little girl who inspired the animatronic figure used in Red Light, Green Light).

And, there's more in store for the salesman (Gong Yoo) who recruited players for the Games. As Dong-hyuk teased, "The man in the suit with ddakji might be back."

Although season two has only just been confirmed, it's rumored that the show will go on even longer, with Dong-hyuk previously sharing that he was in talks to write not one, but two more seasons.

Since then, Dong-hyuk he's revealed tentative plans for the upcoming episodes, including his hopes to bring back some of the stars from the first season. "Most of them are dead," he said, adding, "I'll try something to bring them back to season two."

Dong-Hyuk is also working on a movie tentatively titled Killing Old People Club. The title says it all, with the director joking that this "controversial project" will likely draw criticism from older adults.

Squid Game is streaming now on Netflix.
