Squid Game’s writer and director, Hwang Dong-hyuk has spoken up about a potential Season 2 of the show on Netflix.
There has been a lot of talk about Squid Game Season 2.
People have been wondering about the show and whether it’ll get a second season or not.
We recently revealed that Netflix had already greenlit a Season 2 of Squid Game.
Well, Hwang did an interview with Variety and that was when he discussed a possible second season and how it might work.
He actually revealed that he didn’t have any “well-developed plans” for Season 2.
Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
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.

Hwang also spoke about why he thinks the show has proven to be such a worldwide hit and he mentioned the show’s simplicity and relatability of its characters.
Here’s what he had to say:
I wanted to write a story that was an allegory or fable about modern capitalist society, something that depicts an extreme competition, somewhat like the extreme competition of life. But I wanted it to use the kind of characters we’ve all met in real life. As a survival game it is entertainment and human drama. The games portrayed are extremely simple and easy to understand. That allows viewers to focus on the characters, rather than being distracted by trying to interpret the rules.
