Squid Game Season 2: According to Squid Game maker Hwang Dong-hyuk and popbuzz.com, Season 2 may be inspired by fan suggestions. The Korean Netflix drama premiered in its whole on September 17 and has since swept the globe by storm, surpassing Bridgerton to become the streaming platform’s most popular original series. Hwang wrote and directed all the nine episodes of Squid Game in addition to designing it.
While Hwang’s series has a diverse cast of people, it begins with protagonist Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), whose survival is in jeopardy. Gi-hun spends most of his time hustling and gambling while deeply in debt, both to bankers and nasty predatory lenders. He is divorced, negligent of his child, and mooching off his old mother’s work. Following a meeting with a mystery guy, the down-on-his-luck man decides to participate in a series of kids games with 455 other people in similar predicaments, with the ultimate winner receiving a life-changing financial award. The one catch is that eliminating the game means giving up one’s life, as Gi-hun learns the hard way.
In an interview with THR, Hwang admits that making Squid Game was a long, difficult process that included rewriting the screenplays as he shot the episodes. While he acknowledges that there is a temptation to create season 2 of this successful program, he is reluctant to take on the same task again and has yet to decide on Squid Game’s future. However, Hwang believes that the opportunity to rely on the series’ followers may alter the equation this time through.
While the second season of Squid Game would need an almost completely new cast of characters as all the game participants died except the protagonist, the season one ending does not rule out the possibility of continuing Gi-hun’s story. The protagonist chooses not to travel to America to see his daughter after contacting the company for the next version of the games and demanding that they be halted, implying that he would try to make excellent on his vengeance. Hwang might write new episodes to continue the narrative, but the games have a lengthy history, so going back to a prior competition is always possible.
While many Squid Game viewers would welcome a second season anyway, the opportunity to contribute to it is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. In the internet era, theories and forecasts have become a major part of fandom, and although it is sometimes criticized for setting people up for disappointment, Hwang appears to welcome it as a means to relieve his creative load and give his fans some control over the program they love. Though he has yet to determine whether or not to pursue season 2, fans can continue to share their ideas if they provide the inspiration required to extend the Squid Game narrative.
When will season 2 of ‘squid game’ be released?
If the second installment of the squid game develops, we can not expect it within the next 12 months since it will claim writing of the story, recasting, and shooting of the same.
With that in consideration, Netflix has been found to renew a show or two (Bridgerton) when it receives massive attention.
Who will be in the season 2 cast of ‘squid game’?
While we are confident we will see Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) or The Front Man (Lee Byung-Hung) again, there are other characters that fans are pretty convinced we will not see again, such as Cho Sang-woo (Park Hae-soo), Kang Sae-byeok, and Abdul Ali, who were murdered at the cost of the game.
However, there are fan speculations regarding whether or not some of the main characters are deceased. For example, Hwang Jun-ho received a gunshot in the shoulder by his own brother before drowning. That may indicate that actor Wi Ha-Joon will be back for a second season.
There is also a somewhat less plausible rumor circulating that Ali Abdul is still alive—a few fans highlighted out on Twitter that the fact that neither he nor the ‘old guy’ (AKA player 001) died on-screen may indicate they are still alive. Look, that is a big ask, but we would not mind if it happened.
With that in mind, we will just have to wait till the second season is signed, sealed, and presented to find out.
What will happen in season 2 of the ‘squid game’?
The previous season concluded with the central character Seong Gi-hun (portrayed by Lee Jung-jae) succeeding and receiving a large sum of money.
We also saw the tragic deaths of a number of people, including Kang Sae-byeok (represented by Jung Ho-yeon, aka player number 067) and Abdul Ali (aka player number 199 portrayed by Anupam Tripathi).
Seong Gi-hun is traumatized and wants to revenge their murders in some way, so he sets out to find the perpetrators of the deadly game and reveal them to the public.
He calls a number provided to another individual who was enticed into the game by a recruiter at the conclusion of the series; maybe the second season will disclose who was on another end of that conversation.
It is also conceivable that we will learn if Hwang Jun-ho (Wi Ha-Joon), who was allegedly shot by his brother, lives. The cop entered the games in the hopes of finding his brother, but it turned out that his brother was the game’s administrator, aka The Front Man.
