It didn't take long for mania to surround the viral hit that was Squid Game – upon its release in September it was nearly impossible to browse the web without seeing post after post about the thrilling show!
Netlfix’s K-drama quickly skyrocketed to the streaming platform's prime spot, with fans soon asking: “Will there be a second series?”
Here’s everything we know about season 2 of the survival drama...
Squid Game has been confirmed for a second season - (yes, we're screaming too)!
The writer and director of the record-breaking series, Hwang Dong-hyuk, confirmed on November 9 that another instalment will be gracing us.
He said: “There’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice!,” Hwang told the Associated Press.
“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 that’s going to happen.”
Netflix's CEO Ted Sarandos revealed in January 2022 that "the ‘Squid Game universe has just begun" – just how many seasons do they have in store for us?
As Netflix's CEO has only just confirmed that the second season is in the works, we'll have to wait some time for a release date.

Hwang did, however, confirm that Seong Gi-hun, the protagonist of the first season (played by Lee Jung-jae), will make a return in season two of the series and reprise his role.
He told the Associated Press: “I will promise you this, Gi-hun will come back. He will do something for the world.”
We're already so excited!
