“Squid Game“, Netflix’s smash-hit series, has been renewed for a second season. Hwang Dong-hyuk’s “Squid Game” was a labor of passion that took over 10 years to complete. Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Jung Hoyeon, and Oh Yeong-su were among the cast members in the first season. The show followed 456 down-on-their-luck competitors as they played a variety of children’s games with terrible repercussions for the losers. The lone winner of the games, though, will collect $45.6 billion, or slightly over $38 million (USD).
“Squid Game” Season 1 premiered on Netflix on September 17, 2021, to rave reviews and a large audience. Within the first 28 days, the series climbed to the top of Netflix’s streaming statistics, raking up an incredible 1.65 billion viewing hours. “Squid Game” quickly became part of the pop cultural vocabulary, with viewers clamoring for a second season due to the show’s colorful visuals and positive word-of-mouth. Netflix now appears to be fulfilling their aspirations.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s co-CEO and chief content officer, revealed “Squid Game’s” upcoming season 2 at Netflix’s fourth-quarter 2021 earnings interview, according to Variety. Sarandos did say, though, that the “Squid Game” world has only just begun,” hinting that Netflix has aspirations beyond just another season of the program. While fans might expect a second season, “Squid Game” appears to be just getting started.
The show has created history with honors with the debut of “Squid Game“. It was the first Korean series to be nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award, as well as the first non-English-language series. Lee Jung-jae, the show’s protagonist, was nominated for Best Actor, while Jung Ho-yeon was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series. In addition, the whole cast of “Squid Game” was nominated for Best Cast in a Drama Series. “Squid Game” received three Golden Globe nominations, including Best Television Drama. Furthermore, oh Yeong-su won the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor, making history as the first Korean to win a Golden Globe.
The second season of “Squid Game” has yet to be announced, however the first season’s finale does provide some hints. Gi-hun was last seen with brightly colored hair when he refused to board his flight. Instead, he resolves to track out the perpetrators of the games. The second season might possibly pick up where the first left off with Jun-inquiry, ho’s which ended suddenly and without closure. While the show’s creator has already announced that he is working on concepts for a second season, “Squid Game” will most likely keep most things under wraps until the show’s premiere. Season 2 of “Squid Game“, on the other hand, is already in the works.
