Lovers of Gi-hun and Front Man should pay attention: the second season of the popular Netflix series Squid Game is coming anyway. The streaming service officially announced this tonight.
Squid Game is a series in which a group of poor Koreans have to play children’s games to the death to win millions. Netflix posted a short video to officially announce that the season is coming:

Netflix also shared a message from the brains behind Squid Game, Hwang Dong-Hyuk:
“A whole new round is coming,” the message reads. The writer also lifts a corner of the veil, so in the new season we meet the boyfriend of one of the female protagonists from the first series, Young-hee.
The signs have been there for some time, and given the series’ success, it’s no surprise that a second season is coming. There is even talk of a third. At least now series 2 has been officially confirmed by Netflix.
For those who are now putting the popcorn in the microwave: don’t do that just yet. Despite the announcement from Netflix, the second season is still a while away.
In April, creator Hwang Dong-Hyuk said that he thinks the series will only be available in 2024. At the time, there would have been only three pages of the script. So have a little patience.
Squid Game was the most-watched series on Netflix last year and also became the most-watched production in the history of the streaming service. It won three Golden Globe Awards.
