The creator and director confirmed to The Korea Times last month that he was in conversation with Netflix about seasons 2 and 3. He said; “I’m in talks with Netflix over season two as well as season three. We will conclude any time soon.” He further added; “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!”
Squid Game Season 2 has been expected since it became the most-streamed Netflix series to date in October with over 111 million viewers, surpassing the Netflix original Bridgerton, which fell behind by a whopping 29 million viewers. Season 1 of the Korean hit show debuted on Netflix on 17th September 2021, to stellar reviews and mass viewership. The series quickly rose to the top of Netflix’s streaming charts, racking up an astounding 1.65 billion viewing hours within the first 28 days of the show.
