Squid Game is a South Korean survival drama television series created by Hwang Dong-hyuk for Netflix.
Lee Jung-Jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-joon, HoYeon Jung, O Yeong-su, Heo Sung-tae, Anupam Tripathi, and Kim Joo-young star.
The series revolves around a secret contest in which 456 players, all of whom are in dire financial need, risk their lives to play a series of lethal children’s games for the chance to win a 45.6 billion (US$35 million, €33 million, or £29 million as of a broadcast) prize.
The series title is based on a similarly named Korean children’s game. Hwang based the concept on his own early economic struggles, as well as class disparities in South Korea and capitalism.
Though he wrote it in 2009, he was unable to find a production company to fund it until Netflix took an interest in it around 2019 as part of their drive to expand their foreign programming offerings.
Squid Game Season 2 Plot: What Will It Be About?
Squid Game Season 2 will follow Seong Gi-Hun, who will be sporting a new red hairstyle, as he attempts to bring down those behind the titular Squid Game.
It will also deal with the consequences of Gi-decision Hun to stay in Korea rather than accompany his daughter to the United States.
The sequel will hopefully shed new light on the mysterious games and introduce us to even more of the people who run them. More information will undoubtedly emerge as Season 2 progresses in production and the first trailers are released.
“I have no idea what will happen or the scale of it,” actor Lee Jung-Jae told People, “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 play in the arena again.”
Squid Game Season 2 Cast: Who’s in It?
Given how Season 1 concludes, we can expect a nearly entirely new lineup in Season 2.
As of yet, no other Korean celebrities have been confirmed for the show. However, given its enormous popularity, the directors should have no trouble attracting talent.
Squid Game 2 Release Date
Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-CEO and chief content officer, confirmed a second season of Squid Game will air during an earnings call in January 2022.
Netflix then teased a “whole new round” on Twitter. Red light….Green light.
Hwang Dong-hyuk, the creator, writer, and director of Squid Game, previously estimated that it would be released by the end of 2023 or early 2024 at the latest.
He explained in a Vanity Fair interview in May 2022 that he was about to work on the scripts after forming three pages of ideas. An outline was apparently established in July 2022.
How and Where to Watch Squid Game Season 2
Squid Game 2 may take some time to arrive on our screens. Season 2 should hopefully not take 12 years to complete as the first did.
Season 2 of Squid Game, like the first, will be available only on Netflix. That means you’ll need your Netflix account ready.
Which streaming device is best for your TV? The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max is our top recommendation. The Google Chromecast with Google TV, the Roku Express 4K, the Apple TV 4K, and the Amazon Fire TV Stick are all excellent options.
How Many Episodes Will Squid Game Season 2 Have?
The first season of Squid Game had nine episodes and six “games” within those nine episodes.
We anticipate a similar amount for the upcoming season. It has yet to be confirmed.
Is Squid Game Based on a True Story?
Squid Game isn’t based on a true story (thank goodness), but Dong-hyuk drew inspiration for the show from real-life themes of poverty and class struggles, as well as events and people in his own life.
Squid Game Season 2 Trailer: is There a Trailer?
No, there is no trailer for Squid Game Season 2 at the time of writing.
We’ll update this space once it’s been shared online.
