“We are focused on making it (Season 2 – Ed.) even more exciting”,
Kim Ji-young, executive producer of the series, announced.
And Hwang Dong-hyuk promised that the Frontman (Host) in charge of survival games would return (the director was even going to make him the central character). The winner of the last game, Sung Ki Hoon, will definitely return (it is possible that in the role of the warden – it was not for nothing that at the end of the first season he dyed his hair pink – the color of their costumes. Or maybe it will be just a disguise to deal with those who develop such “games”, and put an end to the bloody competition). And to keep Gi Hoon from looking boring, Hwang said he was going to make this character comedic as well.

And also – since Yong Hee's killer doll was removed from sale, then the series will appear … her boyfriend. The creators of the series either jokingly or seriously hint at a possible romantic story of these two dolls. Well, let's see.
As for the human characters, Hwang once said in an interview that he wants to talk more about the Korean police. Hwang is sure that this topic is close to everyone, because problems with law enforcement officers also concern other countries, and he himself has long wanted to cover the situation in the police in more detail … It is also possible that the second part of the series may be a kind of prequel and will tell the background of the Host, who was a police officer . Perhaps the Host's brother will reappear – police officer Hwang Joon-ho, who seemed to have been killed last season, but the body was never shown to us, so there are options.
By the way, considering that in the first season there was 455 participants of the game were killed, for the new casting the team will obviously have to work hard. So this year we are unlikely to wait for the continuation. It is possible that we will see the continuation of the sensational series only in 2024. Netflix has not yet officially announced the start of the second season of the show.
The South Korean TV series “The Squid Game” premiered on Netflix on September 17th. Very quickly, the show topped the list of the most watched series on the streaming service. In the story, the characters end up on a remote island to take part in a knockout game. The winner receives $38 million. But there is a nuance. None of the participants were warned that in the usual children's games, death awaits the loser. As well as the one who refuses to play. There can only be one winner.
