'Squid Game' maker teases Season 2; third maybe coming soon

Squid Game

Seoul, Dec 30 : Hwang Dong-hyuk, the writer and director of popular Korean survival drama 'Squid Game', has discussed the future of his hit Netflix series. During a new interview, Dong-hyuk teased that two more seasons of the thriller series are probably coming soon, reports aceshowbiz.com. Speaking with KBS (Korean Broadcasting System), Dong-hyuk said that he is in talks with Netflix about Season 2 "as well as season 3." He went on to share: "We will come to a conclusion any time soon." Dong-hyuk added: "We know that many people are waiting, so everyone is working hard to prepare for the next season with a positive outlook." Netflix confirmed the claims on the same day. "It's true that we are discussing a wide variety of possibilities for 'Squid Game', including the production of a Season 3, but nothing has yet been set in stone," the streaming giant said in a statement. Back in November, Dong-hyuk shared that he had been working on a Season 2 storyline. "I do have a basic storyline for Season 2 - it's all in my head - and I am currently in the brainstorming stage," the writer-director said during a special screening and Q&A. "It will happen, someday, but as for when I cannot tell you the details." Dong-hyuk didn't really say much about the potential plot in Season 2. However, he confirmed that the sophomore season would follow Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) and his investigation of those behind the deadly, titular tournament. Debuting on September 27, 'Squid Game' tells "an imaginative, unorthodox story in which 456 contestants risk their lives in a mysterious survival game -- involving multiple rounds of childhood games -- for a chance to win 45.6 billion won." The show quickly becomes a global phenomenon. It was officially named the biggest launch for a new show on Netflix, surpassing 'Bridgerton', after it reached 111 million viewers in less than a month. Additionally, 'Squid Game' is among Netflix's Top 10 list in around 94 countries. The dystopian show is also the platform's first-ever Korean series to reach the No. 1 spot in the US. /IANS
