Netflix’s hittest series from recent times is the Squid Game. Various studios rejected this South-Korean masterpiece due to its bizarre premise before Netflix brought it to everyone’s notice. It is by far the most successful Non-English Netflix series to date. It was on must see TV show recommended list on Netflix is close to 90 countries worldwide.
This is a thriller series where 465 players take part in a game to get a chance to clear their debts in real life. These players compete against each other in six children’s games in a quest to win 38 million USD. The catch is that there would only be one winner, and the rest would meet their deaths gruesomely. Now, after the first season’s success, people have started talking about a possible second season, and here in this article, we will discuss all of it.
Squid Game Season 2 Release Date and Time:
Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed the arrival of Squid Game season 2 via the Associated Press. 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.” He further added, “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.”
He also talked to The Guardian about the second season. He said, “I do realise there are huge expectations for season two. It’s not that I haven’t thought about season two at all, and I also do have a rough framework for it. But I keep asking myself whether I can make it better than season one. I do not want people to get disappointed over the new season.”
He even said that he would read about all the fan theories about the second season and use people’s perspectives as a writer’s room for ideas for the show.
He explained that he might even try to incorporate some of the many fan theories circulating online to help him create a good show.
When will the second season be released?
Since the script for the second is not even ready yet, we cannot expect a quick release for the second season. The first season came out in 2021, and two years before that, we first heard about a series named Squid Game. So for writing, filming, and production to be complete, it will take a minimum of two more years, possibly three. So we can expect a release date sometime in 2023 or 2024.
What about the cast for season 2?
We won’t see the cast of season 1 appearing in the second season, given the dynamics of the games. Elimination in the first season meant death for the contestants, and this is not a supernatural show where we will see revival taking center stage.
Second 2 will have a new cast entirely, except for the game organizer, the winner, and possibly even the detective that fell off a cliff. The creator confirmed the return of the lead actor Lee Jung-Jae(Seung Gi-hun), and the actor also revealed that he would be happy to be part of the show in the second season.
Is there a trailer for season 2?
No, there is no official trailer out for Squid Game season 2. You might find several fan-made trailers on Youtube, but officially we have nothing. The series could be in its filming phase or production phase right now.
We will see the second season in 2023 or 2024, and we can only expect a trailer for it a couple of months before that. So expecting a trailer now in 2022 would be foolish.
Squid Game brought the South-Korean movie and series universe under the limelight, and many other shows are now reaping their benefits. We now have a wide selection of South Korean shows running on Netflix in several countries, and the response from the audience for it has been good for Netflix.
The fans of the show are why the creator is thinking about a second season. He understands the impact of the first season and now wants to create a second season that compliments the former. So if we do not have any more delays due to the pandemic or anything similar in the coming months, we can expect another fantastic second season for the South-Korean thriller Squid Game within the next two years.
So this is all about the second season of Squid Game. If you have questions or remarks, you can comment down below. And to check other posts on anime shows, you can visit here.
