Squid Game was a sensation and Netflix announced the show will be getting a second season!
"Red light... GREENLIGHT," the company said in its statement. "Squid Game is officially coming back for Season 2!"
Hwang Dong-hyuk, who wrote, directed, and executive produced the show, celebrated the announcement.
"A whole new round is coming," he wrote. "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. Gi-hun returns. The Front Man returns... The man in the suit with ddakji might be back. You’ll also be introduced to Young-hee’s boyfriend, Cheol-su."
Dong-hyuk already has a season three in mind as well. It seems like Netflix sees Squid Game as part of the solution to their financial woes.
