It’s been revealed to us – as well as other outlets – that Squid Game Season 2 is already in the works over at Netflix.
We were recently told by sources close to Netflix that they are already hard at work on the second season.
According to our source, Netflix is doing everything it can to convince director/writer Hwang Dong-hyuk to start work on the second season.
Hwang is currently hard at work making a movie called KO Club (Killing Old Men Club).
So, he’ll have to finish that first and then start work on a Season 2 of Squid Game.
That said, Netflix might offer the director some incentive to get that movie made asap and then start work on Season 2 of Squid Game.
Squid Game Season 2 is happening over at Netflix
Hwang told Variety, however, that he doesn’t have well-developed plans for a Season 2 yet:
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.
It takes him a while to do things when he’s working alone, adding:
It took me six months to write and rewrite the first two episodes. Then I consulted verbally with friends, and picked up clues for improvements through my own pitching and from their responses.
We do also have to mention that Giant Freakin Robot also posted an article in which they confirmed that Season 2 of Squid Game was in the works.
According to their report, Netflix is also thinking of making spinoffs of the show.
Squid Game spinoffs also coming?
We weren’t informed about that, however, it would make sense for Netflix to want to expand this world given the show’s huge popularity.
It does seem as though this new show’s been doing incredibly well on Netflix.
Here’s what Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos had to say about this new horror series, Squid Game:
Squid Game will definitely be our biggest non-English language show in the world, for sure. [There’s] a very good chance it’s going to be our biggest show ever.
This is very interesting hearing Netflix’s co-CEO talking about Squid Game in such a way.
