What has the director of Squid Game said about another season?

Hwang neither confirmed nor denied the rumours when talking about the hit show with Variety, but he did make it clear that the possibility wasn’t off the table – so keep your fingers crossed!

He told the publication: "I don’t have well-developed plans for ‘Squid Game 2.’ It is quite tiring just thinking about it.

"But if I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone. I’d consider using a writers’ room and would want multiple experienced directors."

He may not be rushing getting a second season sent into motion but that doesn’t mean it's not happening!
