Season 2 of Squid Game is scheduled to appear at the end of the year. All that has already been announced

A little more is already known about the second season of Squid Game. Well, about the third one too.

One would think that the whole Squid Game phase has only just passed, and already another season has been announced for the near future. The Korean series about “squid game” took over the entire internet in late 2021, just like Netflix’s recent Wednesday.

After the last episode with its mysterious ending was warmly received by fans, lead director Hwang Dong-hyuk was quick to confirm that the story for the next season is already in the development process. So it can be assumed that the first filming will be underway soon if it hasn’t already begun, as the second season of the Korean masterpiece is scheduled to premiere later this year.

Much is already known about season 2 and even season 3 of Squid Game

Unfortunately, there is still no official release date for the next installment of the popular Korean survival series, but a few days ago creator Hwang Dong-hyuk revealed a bit about it in an interview with Vanity Fair. In short, the creator estimated that the second season will appear as early as the end of 2023 or early 2024.

Netflix co-owner and chief content officer Ted Sarandos himself, after meeting with the series’ lead director a year ago, said that this universe is just beginning. So this is an indirect announcement of not only the second but also the third and subsequent parts of Squid Game. Once Hwang Dong-hyuk admitted that he has 3 different sides of plot ideas for the next series of this title.

What’s more, speculation about three seasons was confirmed in an article in The Korea Times, when Hwang said he was in talks with Netflix about two more seasons of Squid Game.

I am in talks with Netflix for season 2, as well as season 3 – Hwang Dong-hyuk for KBS.

It is known that the next season of Squid Game will further focus on the main character Gi-hun, who will try to unravel the mystery of a federation that organizes dangerous skirmishes for people in financial crisis. Lee Jung-jae in an interview with People said:

I have no idea what will happen or the scale of it, but the only thing [director Hwang] did tell me was that Seong Gi-hun is going to be in the show again, and he’s going to be playing in the arena again.

In future seasons, however, one can expect a completely different cast of actors due to the series’ storyline. However, looking at how great numbers the Korean title has made, one can assume that we will only see movie stars on screen.
