More information about Squid Game season 2 is revealed by creator Hwang Dong-hyuk, who suggests that the Netflix series will struggle to demonstrate humanity’s benevolence.
Hwang Dong-hyuk, the developer of Squid Game, describes what fans may anticipate from season 2. Squid Game, which Hwang first came up with over 10 years ago as he struggled with his own finances, was eventually picked up by Netflix as the streaming service sought to diversify its programming.
The South Korean-set drama centres on a group of 456 indebted individuals who are forced to participate in a series of dangerous children’s games in order to earn an enormous sum of money.
The show, which debuted in September 2021 to rousing praise, quickly established itself as one of more than 94 nations’ most popular Netflix original programmes. With fourteen Emmy nominations still pending, Squid Game season 2 has won a number of accolades and was formally announced in June.
Lee Jung-jae is scheduled to return as the series’ main protagonist Gi-hun, who in the season finale declined a trip to be reunited with his daughter in favors of following the creators of the titular Squid Game. Hwang has stayed mum on the storyline elements for season 2, though.
Hwang revealed a little more about what viewers could expect from Squid Game season 2 during an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
Gi-hun will once again be the focus of the new episodes, according to Hwang, who also explained that season 2 would follow him as he embarks on a new journey to demonstrate that we are all human and have the potential to do good. See his complete remarks below:
Hwang’s statements confirm his earlier claim that season 1’s hidden plot indications could be unearthed in season 2, even if other information about Squid Game season 2 remain unknown. He added that the season 2 outline was finished as of July and said Gi-hun might be brought back into the Squid Game world in some form.
He also promised the introduction of new games and characters. Though little is known about any recent cast additions, Hwang previously stated that audiences may anticipate the return of HoYeon Jung as a twin to her original character, Kang Sae-byeok, as well as Gi-hun, The Front Man (Lee Byung-hun), and the salesperson (Gong Yoo).
The most popular Netflix series, Squid Game, may not return for a while as season 2 filming has not even started. While a lengthy production schedule might annoy some viewers, it doesn’t seem likely that the enthusiasm surrounding the show will dissipate anytime soon, especially since Netflix is satiating fan cravings with a proposed Squid Game reality show.
The possibility that Squid Game will return to screens over the next two years remains hopeful given the development being done and Hwang’s strong vision.
