Squid Game has been confirmed to return for a second season.

In an interview with the Associated Press, director Hwang Dong-hyuk finally confirmed that the popular Korean series will be coming back.

This isn't the first time that there have been talks of a second season but it's the first time that the rumor was confirmed by the creator himself.

Given the massive success of the show, it was almost impossible to say no to demands.

Here's what we can expect to see on the 2nd season.

“So there’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season,” director Hwang started.

“So I almost feel like you leave us no choice! But I will say, there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how it’s going to happen. So I will promise you this… Gi-hun will come back, he’ll do something for the world.”

Jun-ho's Relationship With Brother Explored


It was also hinted that the second season may involve the police. There is a possibility that Jun-ho's relationship with his brother, who was revealed to be the Front Man, will be explored.

The ending of season 1 left Jun-ho's fate hanging. While he was shot and fell off a cliff, we didn't see a dead body. He could return for season 2 and become Gi-hun's ally.

Many fans also pointed out that he was shot on the shoulder and the wound may not be fatal.

Another character who received lots of love from the viewers is Sae-byeok Kang, played by model HoYeon Jung.

The fan-favorite may have met her end in the first season but HoYeon's popularity may actually bring her back for the upcoming season, even for just an appearance to please the fans.

In an interview, HoYeon has said that she is still waiting on her fate for season 2.

When Will Squid Game Season 2 Be Released?


According to director Hwang, he is still in the planning process, so it might take a while for season 2 to be ready.

The K-drama was Hwang's first series and it took over a decade to develop the show.

Star of the show Jung-jae Lee has said that he trusts the director completely.

"Season 2, it's all cooking in his brain right here," Lee said, referring to Hwang. "So there's high expectations for the second season. Because of such huge success for Season 1, I feel like a lot of expectations have been built up, so it's going to be tough to meet them. But again, it's all in his head right here."
