Squid Game broke records in becoming one of the most-watched series on Netflix earlier this year, so of course the creator of the show, Hwang Dong-hyuk, is already plotting a follow-up series.

After he confirmed he’s working on season two, fans are already wondering about which cast members could return.

It might prove tricky in reviving the original characters however, given that many of them don’t make it to the end of the final episode.

Who will be in the cast of Squid Game season 2?

There’s one cast member we know definitely will be returning to Squid Game series two, and that’s Lee Jung-jae, who played main character Seong Gi-hun.

After winning the Squid Games, he returned home with his millions of Korean won and began his new life, dying his hair red and preparing to visit his daughter in the USA.

However, after noticing the same man who recruited him for the games playing the red and blue card game with another passenger at the train station, Gi-hun was drawn back into the experience, turning away from his awaiting flight to LA.

As those who binged series one will know, Kang Sae-byeok (played by HoYeon Jung) sadly died, while Cho Sang-Woo (Park Hae Soo) took his own life.

Oh II-nam (Oh Yeong-su), who Gi-hun befriended, also passed away at the end of the series, after it was revealed he was the creator behind the games.

Another character we could see again however is Hwang Jun-ho (Wi Ha-Joon) after he was shot by his brother The Front Man (played by Lee Byung-hun), with fans believing he never actually died.
