(Pocket-lint) – Squid Game became one of Netflix’s most talked about shows after its launch in September 2021, which is unsurprising really as it’s an emotional roller coaster that hooks you in almost immediately.
This resulted in season 1 becoming the most watched show at launch in the streaming service’s history, with a staggering 111 million views in just a couple of months.
So, talk naturally turns to season 2 and, with a fairly open ending and unprecedented demand, you can be reassured that it will be on its way.
Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Squid Game 2 release date
Netflix’s co-CEO and chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, confirmed a second season of Squid Game will be happening. The confirmation – which happened during the streaming service’s fourth quarter earnings call on 20 January 2022 – follows Squid Game’s creator, writer and director, Hwang Dong-hyuk, previously telling the Associated Press on 9 November 2021 that it was definitely on the cards.
“There will indeed be a second season,” he said in a brief interview. “It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently.”
