Netflix announced on Twitter that Squid Game is officially coming back for a second season. The streaming service tweeted: “Red light… GREENLIGHT! Squid Game is officially coming back for Season 2!”
The South Korean dystopian drama ‘Squid Game’ is about financially struggling contestants who risk their lives playing deadly versions of children’s games for the chance to win cash prizes. The show’s writer, director and producer, Hwang Dong-hyuk, also confirmed the news in a statement, saying: “A whole new round is coming. It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year, but it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever. And now, Gi-hun returns. The Front Man returns. Season 2 is coming.”
No air date or casting was announced as of press time.
