Squid Game, Netflix's most popular series, has been renewed for a second season. The sequel was in the works, and Netflix executives as well as the show's writer, director, and executive producer Hwang Dong-hyuk and the primary actors had teased a return after the first instalment's spectacular popularity.
Season 2 has been approved, and Cheol-su confirmed it in a message to fans, revealing who might return for it and what new character will join the series.
He explained that Gi-hun is back and the front man is back. While Ddakji, the man in the suit, might be back. Young-hee’s boyfriend, Cheol-su, will also be introduced.
Hwang Dong-hyuk also spoke about the series' journey to the screen and its enormous success. He remarked that bringing the first season of Squid Game to life last year took 12 years. However, it only took the series 12 days to become the most popular series ever.
In the first 28 days after its release, it had 1.65 billion views. The Korean drama Squid Game presently holds the record for Netflix's most-watched series—English-language or non-English-language—by a considerable margin, and it did so partly due to strong word of mouth.
Dong-hyuk's note read that in 2021, the first season of Squid Game took 12 years to complete. The series, on the other hand, just needed 12 days to become the most popular Netflix series ever. He gave a massive shout-out to fans all over the world from the writer, director, and producer of Squid Game. The creator also thanked them for taking the time to watch and enjoy their show.
He concluded by stating to fans that he would return with them for a brand new round.
Squid Game also won several accolades after its successful and massive run on Netflix last year.
