Will there be a second season of Netflix's Squid Game?

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?
