After the show’s director wrote “The man in the suit with ddakji might be back” social media users started wondering Squid Game season 2 release date. In this article we’ll try to curb your curiosity about Squid Game season 2 release date.
The wildly popular South Korean program has been green lit for a second season by Netflix. “And now, Gi-hun returns,” director, writer and executive producer Hwang Dong-hyuk said in a letter to fans. “The Front Man returns. Season 2 is coming.” The “Squid Game” is a South Korean series in which contestants who are desperate for money engage in deadly children’s games to win cash prizes. Seong Gi-hun, the protagonist of “Squid Game,” is a divorced gambler who entered the contest in search of big money.
Hwang also hinted at the introduction of new characters and plot developments in the second season. “The man in the suit with ddakji might be back,” he wrote, referring to the mysterious salesman who recruits desperate players to the game show. The author of the letter also informed viewers that they will meet Cheol-su, a “boyfriend” of the show’s infamous animatronic puppet Young-hee.
“Squid Game” is Netflix’s biggest-ever series at launch. It is the first Korean program on Netflix to reach No. 1 in the United States, with 1.65 billion hours of viewing in the 28 days after its debut. “It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year,” Hwang said in the letter. “But it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular series ever.”
Last year, Hwang had said that he would produce a second season of the program. “There’s been so much demand, love and attention for a season two,” he said. “So I feel I have no choice but to make a season two.”
When is Squid Game season 2 release date?
It’s unclear when Squid Game season 2 release date will be revealed — or if it’s even finished yet. In an interview with Vanity Fair, Hwang told the outlet he could see the next season of Squid Game coming out by the end of 2023, and will feature more diabolical games. So if you were hoping to see what sort of trouble Gi-hun gets wrapped up in next, you might have to wait a year or two.
