Shortly after Squid Game was released, multiple fan-made accounts started claiming that there will be spinoffs in the works.

Netflix and the creators of Squid Game have not confirmed anything. But a spinoff following the show's success could be a wonderful move for the people behind the program.

According to Giant Freakin Robot, the spinoffs will bring the concept of Squid Game to other countries.

But until Netflix makes an official announcement everything else is just speculation for now.

Fans are also wondering if there will be Squid Game Season 2, especially since Season 1 ended with a few cliffhangers.

Some storylines were not also addressed in Episode 9. So, there's plenty of things to explore in Squid Game Season 2.

Once again, Netflix has not officially ordered the series for a second season. But, it cannot be denied that fans are clamoring for Squid Game Season 2.

There are a lot of storylines that can be explored in Squid Game Season 2 if only the series will be renewed.

First, in Squid Game Season 1 Episode 9, Seong Gi-Hun (Lee Jung-Jae) found out that the games are still happening one year after he successfully won the grand prize.

So, instead of visiting his daughter in the United States, he decided to stay back in South Korea.

In Squid Game Season 2, Gi-Hun can finally get the answers that he's been looking for. He wants to know who is really behind the deadly games following the death of the Old Man (Oh Yeong-su).

Other than Gi-Hun finding all the answers, Squid Game Season 2 can also shed more light on who the masked leader is.

In Squid Game Season 1, we know that it's Joon-ho's (Wi Ha-joon) brother that he has been looking for. Joon-ho went to great lengths to find his brother, but he just killed him in the end.

Additionally, Cho Sang-Woo's (Park Hae Soo) still doesn't know what happened to her son. So, it will be interesting to see what her reaction would be once Gi-Hun tells her the truth.

Of course, we still can't get enough of Sae-Byeok (HoYeon Jung), who died in Squid Game Season 1. However, she is still survived by her young brother, who is now living with Cho Sang-Woo's mom.

Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk recently told Variety that he doesn't have any immediate plans for Season 2.

"I don't have well-developed plans for Squid Game 2. It is quite tiring just thinking about it. But if I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone. I'd consider using a writers' room and would want multiple experienced directors," he said.

Based on the creator's answer, all hope is definitely not lost for Squid Game Season 2. And even if it's a Squid Game spinoff that will be released soon, fans will surely tune in and become hooked.
