“Squid Game” In Talks for a Third Season

Following the success of Netflix’s Squid Game, the production team moved quickly to plan for the series’ follow-up seasons. Although it is expected that the Squid Game will be getting a second season, the series’ director Hwang Dong Hyuk revealed that he plans to also work on a third season.

Speaking in an interview with South Korean network KBS, Hwang Dong Hyuk shared, “I am discussing with Netflix to produce a second and a third season, and will reach a conclusion soon.”

Hwang Dong Hyuk disclosed that the second season will continue to star Lee Jung Jae as Seong Gi Hun, the sole survivor of the deadly games. Having escaped his life of debt with his winnings, Seong Gi Hun is now driven to track down the shadow organization behind the games.

Since its premiere in September of the year, Squid Game has dominated Netflix’s chart in more than 90 countries, and greatly contributed to the streaming giant’s growing number of subscribers. Given the series’ popularity, fans will be waiting with anticipation for the next two seasons.

  1. I already found the result that Lee Jung Jae’s character winning the game really difficult to believe considering he was neither particularly smart nor physically skilled in any way. He won with a lot of luck and support from the other characters. I don’t see how such a dimwitted person that constantly makes bad decisions could take down a long standing organization. I enjoyed some of the other characters but Lee Jung Jae’s was definitely not one of them. I personally think he’s really jumping the gun with planning a third season already.

    1. Same thoughts here.
      On a separate note, I’ve been wishing for news on Sweet Home new seasons than this.

  2. Hopefully the plot won’t become a cliche of “You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.” @lilseemonster yea agreed. he was a very unlikely winner
