‘Squid Game’ creator Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed in a recent interview that he’s presently in talks with Netflix over a second and third season of the show. Following its Sept. 17 debut, the South Korean show became the Netflix’s biggest series in its history — reaching 142 million member households globally and becoming the first to surpass 100 million views.
According to The Korea Times, Hwang said:“I’m in talks with Netflix over season 2 as well as season 3. We will come to a conclusion any time soon.” During a November special screening and Q&A for the series, Hwang shared that he had been working on a season two storyline and was currently in talks with Netflix over another season. The writer-director shared: “I do have a basic storyline for season two — it’s all in my head — and I am currently in the brainstorming stage. It will happen, someday, but as for when I cannot tell you the details.”
Squid Game follows Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), who receives a mysterious invitation to join a tournament of traditional Korean children’s games with a deadly twist. Held in a secret location, the games offer its 456 participants a shot at winning 45.6 billion in prize money.
