Becoming a trend of its own, the series has taken over Netflix charts as it rises to the top being the most watched show on the streaming platform. As it has been renewed, will Squid Game Season 2 be arriving next month or will the wait be any longer?
Is Squid Game Season 2 Coming in March 2023?
Unfortunately, no, it is impossible to have Squid Game Season 2 to arrive in March 2023 because filming of the series has just started in February of the same year.
In 2021, Squid Game took the world by storm, breaking Bridgerton's record for the most-viewed Netflix original series ever, getting critical acclaim with a near-perfect critic score of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.
Having been nominated for various awards, including the Bingeworthy Show of the Year Award in the 2021 People's Choice Awards, so it's not surprising that the South Korean series was renewed for a second season despite the series only originally being ordered for one.
In January 2022, the streaming giant has already officially renewed the survival drama for a second season.
The show's creator Hwang Dong-hyuk also confirmed to the Associated Press that a new season is in the works, but they're still on the early planning stages.
During Netflix's fourth-quarter 2021 earnings interview, Netflix co-CEO and chief content officer Ted Sarandos was asked if the streaming giant's breakout series would return for its much-speculated Season 2.
"Absolutely," he responded. "The Squid Game universe has just begun."
Hwang added, "But I will say there will indeed be a second season. It's in my head right now. I'm in the planning process currently. But I do think it's too early to say when and how that's going to happen."
On March 19, 2022, Hwang spoke to Deadline about Squid Game Season 2: "There will be more great games, that’s all I can say.” Hwang said “I’m just still brainstorming and collecting the ideas for Season 2. I haven’t even started with the writing yet.”
In May 2022, Hwang told Vanity Fair that he predicts that the next season won't be ready for release until the end of 2023 at the earliest, and it's more likely that Season 2 will be released on Netflix in 2024.
