Squid Game will return to Netflix
Netflix announced the ‘Squid Game’ season 2 through its official social channels, which excited fans around the world.
At first, writer-director Hwang Dong-hyuk mentioned the series advancing to the next level.
The director wasn’t sure if it would work because most K-dramas conclude after a single year.
The record-breaking TV show was a hit with fans, and Netflix was motivated to officially greenlight Squid Game for Season 2.
“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,” Dong-Hyuk writes.
“As the writer, director, and producer of ‘Squid Game,’ a huge shout out to fans around the world. Thank you for watching and loving our show… Join us once more for a whole new round,” Dong-Hyuk said.
According to US Magazine, the Korean drama series won three Screen Actors Guild Awards at the 2022 ceremony, which meant it won in almost every category in which it was nominated.
As soon as the series was officially launched, it quickly became a popular show. The first episode was released on Netflix on 17 September 2021.
What is Squid Game?
The Squid Game is a deadly game in which its players are willing to die for the prize in order to live a debt-free life. It is a combination of traditional child games in which players have to win, otherwise, they lose.
