Squid Game topples almost everything on Netflix right now as it is lording over the top 10 of the streaming platform. The original Korean drama series continues to pique the interest of many viewers making it number one and it doesn’t disappoint, not at all, which is why a lot are asking whether season 2 will happen for the show and the creator addresses this matter in a straight-forward manner.
The Netflix creator behind Squid Game is none other than Hwang Dong-hyuk, who both directed and wrote all nine episodes of the show. He had a chat with Variety and when asked about the second season of the show, he said, "I don't have well-developed plans for 'Squid Game 2."
While Dong-hyuk did not completely dismiss the idea of having another season, he shared that he would need help if it were to happen, "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."
Squid Game easily locked the top stop on Netflix’s list and it remained there since its premiere. This is not only in the US but also in several countries like Australia, Japan, Mexico, Germany, Brazil, Canada, and definitely, in the place of its origin, in South Korea.
Squid Game is a survival drama following four hundred and fifty-six people who are struggling financially in life who got an invite to participate in a mysterious survival competition. They would have to face each other in a series of traditional children’s games; however, it is not that simple. The twists are deadly but the price is a whopping ₩45.6 billion (US$38.5 million) and considering their financial state, they risk their lives for it.
Currently, Squid Game holds an 8.5 out of 10 rating on Rotten Tomatoes and it has been critically acclaimed for seemingly mirroring the reality of how people would do everything for such a huge amount when struggling financially in order to survive in life.
Squid Game is now streaming on Netflix.
