Netflix announced on Sunday that the popular South Korean show has been greenlit for a second season.
“And now, Gi-hun is back,” director, writer, and executive producer Hwang Dong-hyuk said in a letter to fans. “The leader returns. Season 2 is coming up.”
“Squid Game” is a fictional drama from South Korea in which contestants in desperate need of money play deadly childish games to win cash prizes.
Seong Gi-hun, the main protagonist of “Squid Game,” is a divorced gamer who entered the contest for a lot of money.
Hwang also teased new characters and developments in the second season.
“The man in the ddakji suit might be back,” he wrote, referring to the mysterious salesman who recruits desperate gamers for the game show.
The letter also said that viewers will meet Cheol-su, the “boyfriend” of the show’s infamous animatronic doll, Young-hee.
Netflix told CNN in October that “Squid Game” was the “biggest series at launch” for the company. It is the platform’s first Korean series to hit #1 in the United States, attracting 1.65 billion hours of viewing within 28 days of its release.
“It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year,” Hwang said in the letter. “But it took Squid Game 12 days to become the most popular series in history.”
