It was never in doubt that Netflix‘s hit series “Squid Game” would be getting a second season. In fact, creator Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed back in November 2021 that he was developing Season 2.

This Saturday morning, Netflix officially announced Season 2 in the following video, which came accompanied by a letter to fans from Hwang Dong-hyuk, which thanked fans for “watching and loving our show.”

“It took 12 years to bring the first season of ‘Squid Game’ to life last year,” he wrote. “But it took 12 days for ‘Squid Game’ to become the most popular Netflix series ever.”

He also shares the news that Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) will return for Season 2, as will the masked Front Man (Lee Byung-hun), who oversees the Squid Game!

In the South Korean series, “Hundreds of cash-strapped players accept a strange invitation to compete in children’s games. Inside, a tempting prize awaits with deadly high stakes. A survival game that has a whopping 45.6 billion-won prize at stake.”
