SQUID GAME SEASON 2: If you binge-watched Netflix’s Squid Game and are still having nightmare, get ready for more sleepless nights. Since its debut on September 17, the dystopian thriller series has been Netflix’s most popular non-English show in 90 countries. It also became Netflix’s greatest ever series debut in recent days (beating Bridgerton’s previous record earlier this year), and the hashtag #squidgame has already received over 27.5 billion (yes, billion) views on TikTok.
The show’s frightening concept, in which 465 individuals (all with major debt troubles) play in six children’s activities over the course of six days for a chance to win £28 million ($38 million), has captivated viewers. Who are the losers? The majority of the show’s characters die horribly, but not before we’ve all gotten infatuated with them and speculations about the show’s open conclusion.
SEASON TWO OF THE SQUID GAME HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED?
Not exactly, but given Netflix’s track record of renewing popular original dramas like Stranger Things and Bridgerton, we have a feeling we won’t be seeing the last of the Squid Game rivals. Netflix usually waits a few months before renewing its blockbuster shows, so keep an eye out.
WHAT HAS THE CAST TO SAY ABOUT THE SECOND SEASON OF A SQUID GAME?
Not much, but if season two is ordered, actor Wi Ha-jun (who plays Detective Hwang Jun-ho) has hinted that his character may return. Fans of the show will recall that the investigator spent the first season searching for his missing brother and resorted to working behind-the-scenes at the Game to make ends meet. After learning that his brother is the Games’ Front Man, the character is shot by his brother for refusing to hand over his pistol and co-operate with the police investigation.
Jun-ho was last seen after being shot and falling down a cliff. Ha-jun stated in a recent interview with Deadline that he wants his character to still be alive so that he may provide answers to many questions. The actor told the publication, ‘I’m desperate to know what happened to him.’ ‘I want him to come back alive, find his brother, and question him endlessly.’ As a brother, I would respectfully inquire. ‘As a detective, I’d like to delve further into the game’s overarching mysteries.’
I truly want Jun-ho to come back to life and answer all of these things. I’m hoping to see more of their relationship’s brotherly love side as well.’ However, the actor isn’t convinced a reunion between the brothers is possible. ‘I’ll have to hear why he made the decisions he did,’ he added.
WHEN CAN WE EXPECT SQUID GAME SEASON 2?
We’re very sure we wouldn’t see a second season on our TVs for a long time if one was ordered. Netflix’s Squid Game was initially mentioned in 2019. Filming and production required another two years, so a second season is unlikely to arrive until 2023 (or possibly 2024!).
