In the words of Hwang, “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 shared this juicy info with the Associated Press on Monday, adding, “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.”

What we know about Squid Game Season 2

Of course, it’s still too early for details and hints of what to look forward to in Squid Game Season 2. Netflix has yet to make an announcement either. But director Hwang swore this: “Gi-hun will come back. He will do something for the world.”

That’s a huge promise for the character of Gi-hun, and we’re so looking forward to seeing Lee Jung-jae portray him once again. What’s more, director Hwang shared that he might just get a writers room and hire multiple directors to film a season two. It hasn’t even begun yet, but the production of Squid Game Season 2 already spells out a bigger budget for the whole project.
