Netflix’s Squid Game has become a global phenomenon just in a few days since its release and has been the top most-watched show in more than 90 countries. The creator of the show, Hwang Dong-hyuk, has recently confirmed the second instalment of the thriller drama. However, the OTT giant, Netflix, ie yet to confirm the renewal of the series for another season.

At an event, the filmmaker told the Associated Press that there has been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season, which have left no choice for the creators but to renew the world-famous show for another part. 

Hwang also confirmed that Lee Jung-Jae will reprise his role as the protagonist named Seong Gi-hun. He also said that it’s too early to mention the exact dates regarding Squid Game 2 but he promised that ‘Gi-hun will come back and he will do something for the world.’

The creator informed AP that he is planning the process currently and it’s all in his head right now. Back in September, Hwang told Variety that he’d consider hiring a writer’s room and bringing on experienced directors if the show was renewed for a second season. He also jokingly mentioned to the news portal that he is not great at teamwork.

Hwang, who wrote and directed Squid Game, developed the hit series as a film in 2008. Apart from Lee Jung-Jae, the Netflix show stars Park Hae Soo, Wi Ha-Joon, HoYeon Jung, Anupam Tripathi and Oh Yeong-su in pivotal roles.
