Hwang Dong-hyuk, writer and director of the Netflix sensation Squid Game, has confirmed that there will be a second season. It is still too early in the process to say for sure when the new season will begin production, but he has already started the planning process.
Hwang confirmed this during an on-camera interview with The Associated Press at a Los Angeles event celebrating the show’s popularity and success.
“There’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice!” Hwang said.
The announcement also confirms that Seong Gi-hun, the protagonist of the show played by Lee Jung-jae, will return in this upcoming second season.
“I will promise you this, Gi-hun will come back,” Hwang said, “He will do something for the world.”
