Netflix Series Squid Game Season 2 Release Date Announced For January 2024
It’s been almost a year since the launch of Squid Game, one of the most popular online video games for children. Fans have been eagerly awaiting news about Season 2 of the game, and now there are reports that it is coming. Is Squid Game Season 2 really back? In this article, we will explore what we know about the latest updates to this beloved game and what may be in store for future players.
Is The Squid Game Returning For Season 2?
It’s official: Squid Game is back for a second season (of slapping you even harder). The South Korean drama swept the globe upon its debut last fall. The show broke all-time streaming records for Netflix, won many awards, and made its stars household names worldwide.
Season 2 was officially announced on June 12, 2022. A tiny teaser trailer was also made available. Netflix has confirmed an additional season of the show.
Squid Game Season 2 Release Date
The drama series “Squid Game” is returning to Netflix for a second season, but fans will have to wait well over a year for new episodes. The creator of the series Hwang Dong-hyuk told Vanity Fair that the next batch of episodes won’t be ready for release until at least the end of 2023. It is also possible that Season 2 will premiere in 2024.

Which Characters Will Be Returning For Season 2?
Many of Squid Game’s actors won’t return for a second season due to the show’s Battle Royale format (unless they appear in a flashback sequence). That calls for the introduction of a plethora of brand-new personalities.
In the tweet above, Dong-hyuk announced the return of Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-Jae), aka Player 456, and the game’s overseer, “The Front Man” in the tweet above (Lee Byung-hun). In addition, “The man in the suit with the ddakji might be returning.” Don’t give in to the temptation to play with him!
What Will Season 2 Be About?
Hwang Dong-hyuk discussed the sentiments he wants to express in the second season of Squid Game with The Hollywood Reporter. He said the second season wouldn’t be an answer to the many negative responses to the first. “The ideas I established in Season 1 carry over seamlessly into Season 2. I didn’t bother trying to anticipate what the audience would want to see, instead focusing on the closing scene, when Gi-hun turned away from boarding the plane.”
Dong-hyuk didn’t reveal any significant plot points, but he did hint at the season’s theme. “A sequence of events will unfold normally that will take us all the way to the season finale. I won’t spoil anything just yet, but because you already know that Seong Gi-hun ends Season 1 as a completely different person, Season 2 will focus on what this new Gi-hun will do and how his character will develop.
