‘Squid Game’ Season Two Confirmed by Director Hwang Dong-Hyuk: ‘There’s Been So Much Pressure’

Calling all Squid Game fans: We haven’t seen the last of Gi-hun. During last night’s special screening of the series in Los Angeles, director Hwang Dong-hyuk revealed there is a second installment in the works.

On Wednesday, the director stepped onto the red carpet and opened up about what’s to come. “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 told the Associated Press. “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.”

While this is great news, it appears things are only in the preliminary stages. Hwang continued, “I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen. So, I will promise you this, Gi-hun will come back. He will do something for the world.”

The news doesn’t come as a huge surprise, considering the series became Netflix's most-watched show ever, drawing in 111 million viewers in its first month alone. (Hwang also opened up about the possibility of season two back in September, during an interview with Variety.)

If you didn’t know, the Korean drama series follows 456 desperate contestants who compete with each other in a mysterious and deadly survival challenge involving multiple rounds of childhood games. The good news? If they win, they get $36 million that can help them pay off their debts. The bad news? If they don’t win, they die.

We can’t wait to see what Gi-hun is up to next.
