Squid Game season two is finally, officially announced for Netflix

The Squid Game is officially coming back to Netflix for season two. According to a message from director Hwang Dong-hyuk, the second season will see the return of Gi-hun and the mysterious front man. The note also says that "the man in the suit with Daekjie may return," and we will also be introduced to Cheol-su, Young-hee's boyfriend.

"Last year it took 12 years for the first season of 'Squid Game' to come to life. But it took 12 days for 'Squid Game' to become the most popular Netflix series of all time," writes Hwang. As a director and producer, there is a huge slog of fans all over the world. Thank you for watching and liking our show. Join us once again for a new era."

The renewal comes despite a change in Netflix's fortunes since the show originally debuted. While the squid game has been a massive hit around the world, in April Netflix reported the first drop in subscribers in 10 years. The layoffs followed soon after, and production budgets were tightened practically across the board. Netflix is ​​also focusing on limiting password sharing, and has told employees it will begin ad-supported streaming by the end of this year.

At launch, the Korean series became the biggest Netflix series ever. Last year, Hwang said he was in the "planning process" of developing season two, while Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos said "the Squid Game universe has just begun." In other words, we all knew season two was coming, but now it's official.

It's unclear when exactly season two will make its debut — or if it's finished yet. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Hwang told the outlet that he could see the next season of Squid Games by the end of 2023 or 2024, and that there will be more Satanic games. So if you were hoping to see what kind of trouble Gi-hun would get into, you might have to wait a year or two.
