Is the Korean survival drama going to return for more violent fights?
Season 2 of the Korean drama Squid Game has been confirmed, according to the show’s creator. In the United States, the Squid Game has been a Netflix Top 10 hit for weeks. That Season 2 is already in the works is no surprise, and writer-director Hwang Dong-hyuk has confirmed that work on it has begun, as well as two returning cast members.
With elements of both Hunger Games and Battle Royale, Squid Game is a standout among the many excellent programmes available on Netflix right now. 456 individuals who have all battled financially in their lives are invited to participate in a strange survival challenge. Tug of war and red/green light are among the games they play with lethal twists in the hopes of earning $38.5 million. A lot of violence and blood are involved; this is not for the faint of heart or stomach.
The first season launched on Netflix on September 17 and reached the Top 10 at No. 8 two days later. It was no surprise when, on its fourth day, on September 21, the programme climbed to the top of the ratings.
Everything we know about the second season of Squid Game is here.
This section contains major plot spoilers for the first season.
Rumors about the release date of Squid Game season 2
Season 2 of Squid Game has not yet been ordered by Netflix. Renewals are usually announced around a month following the previous season’s debut on the streamer.
Hwang Dong-hyuk, the show’s writer and director, has previously voiced reservations about the show’s future.
According to Variety, the first season of Squid Game was a gruelling and exhausting undertaking. In 2008, he started working on the concept for a feature-length film.
In spite of the show’s current success, Hwang said “Not much is known about Squid Game 2. Even the mere thought of it exhausts me. However, even if I were to attempt it, I wouldn’t do it alone. Writers’ rooms and many experienced directors are options that I’d be open to.”
As reported by AP, Hwang’s position on the matter may have evolved.
“Pressure, desire, and passion for a second season have been overwhelming. So it’s almost as though you’ve given us no other option!” Hwang made the statement. “However, I can confirm that there will be a second season of the show. I’m thinking about that right now. As I write this, I’m in the midst of organising my thoughts. I don’t believe it’s too early to speculate on the specifics of when and how it will occur.”
He is aware of one thing, however: “You have my word that Gi-hun will return. The world can count on him to do something.”
Have an urgent need? Season 4 of Ozark on Netflix is coming to a close, and with it, the programme.
The Squid Game cast for the second season.
Season 2 of Squid Game is virtually guaranteed to have a completely new cast since almost all of its participants have perished. Hwang Dong-hyuk, the film’s director, revealed to Deadline that two cast members had been cast.
If you were startled when Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), a divorced father and gambling addict who entered the game to pay off his debts, won season 1, you won’t be surprised that he’s returning. Hwang Dong-hyuk responded to a question regarding returning cast members by saying, “Yes.” “Gi-hun is for sure. Lee Byung-hun [the frontman] is expected to make a comeback, too.”
To discover his missing brother, a police officer known only as Hwang Jun-ho (Wi Ha-joon) enters the game disguised as a player. After he was shot, Jun-ho fell from a cliff into the water. It’s conceivable he lived despite the fact that his corpse was never found.
Since his brother is The Front Man, who helps manage the game, if he did it would provide some tasty material for season two.
What may the plot of Squid Game season 2 be about?
Let’s start with the season 1 finale of Squid Game. Gi-hun and Sang-woo squared off in the sixth and final game of the series, the Squid Game. A dejected Sang-woo stabbed himself and requested his mother for the prise money when Gi-hun had a breakdown and refused to continue the competition.
The money is still sitting in his bank account a year later, though. Oh Il-nam, a wealthy VIP, is Player 001 in a gold game invitation he gets. Gi-hun is jolted out of his funk when Il-nam, who is near death, puts him to the test.
He completes everything he promised to Sang-woo and everyone else before heading to the airport to meet up with his daughter, who he hasn’t seen since they were kids. His first encounter is with his gaming recruiter, the Salesman (played by Gong Yoo). But the game creators advise him to forget about what occurred when he contacts the phone number on the card in question. This time, Gi-hun doesn’t get on the aircraft. He’s clearly trying to stop the game.
Gi-attempt hun’s to put a stop to the game might be the focus of Squid Game season 2. If police officer Jun-ho is still alive, he may be able to help. Perhaps he has some unresolved feelings against front-man brother Front Man.
