There’s been a lot of talk over the past few months about what will happen with Netflix’s new hit show, Squid Game. Well, it seems as though Squid Game Seasons 2 and 3 are already in the works.
An insider revealed to us that Squid Game Season 3 is already in the works over at the streaming platform. They said:
Squid Game Season 2 is in active development and Netflix has already given the greenlight for a third season. There’s also talk of a Squid Game spinoff movie.
This comes after Squid Game’s creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk, told KBS (Korean Broadcasting System) he is in talks with Netflix about Season 2 “as well as Season 3″. He added that a decision is expected “soon.”
Squid Game Season 3 is in development over at Netflix
Squid Game has been a huge phenomenon and has become Netflix’s biggest worldwide hit for Netflix. I’m not sure if anybody saw that one coming.
The show was released and quickly became Netflix’s biggest shows ever. After just 28 days of being available to stream on Netflix, Squid Game’s view count was at 1,650,450,000.
Bridgerton, which is Netflix’s second-most streamed show, only got 625,490,000 views in its first 28 days of being available on the streaming platform. So, Squid Game got over twice the number of views than Bridgerton did, which is in second place.
Big plans ahead for Squid Game
It’s also interesting to hear that Netflix is also considering making a Squid Game spinoff movie. I’m sure that Hwang Dong-hyuk has some very interesting ideas for where the story could go.
That said, I’m also sure that he’s not going to be directly involved with all future Squid Game projects. He’s already revealed that he’s going to need a pretty big writers’ room for future Squid Game seasons.
