Squid Game gets a Season 2 on Netflix

That show that everyone but me watched last year is getting a second go around.

Who doubted that? It was insanely successful! Well no one, but the second season had been in development for so long it was starting to make some question if it would happen.

Hwang Dong-hyuk is the director, writer and executive producer on the project and released the news via an open letter on Netflix.

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. 

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.  

And now, Gi-hun returns. 

The Front Man returns. 

Season 2 is coming. 

The man in the suit with ddakji might be back. 

You’ll also be introduced to Young-hee’s boyfriend, Cheol-su.  

Join us once more for a whole new round.
