Squid Game creator teases second season of the show

The creator of Netflix’s hit show Squid Game has teased another season.

The Korean drama, which is the streaming giant’s biggest ever series launch, follows a group of 456 broke people recruited to compete in a series of children’s game to win a $40 million cash prize.

However, as the plot unfolds contestants learn the competition is much more sinister than they realized, it’s a case of play or die.

In it’s first 28 days on Netflix, the show’s first season was watched by a whopping 111 million users, with fans raving about the series.

While it hasn’t been renewed for a second season just yet, series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has revealed some possible storylines that could occur if the popular show continues.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: “There are some other stories in the series that have not been addressed. For example, the story of the police officer and the story of his brother, The Front Man.”

“So if I end up creating season 2, I’d like to explore that storyline — what is going on between those two brothers?”

The writer continued: “And then I could also go into the story of that recruiter in the suit who plays the game of ddakji with Gi-hun and gives him the card in the first episode.”

“And, of course, we could go with Gi-hun’s story as he turns back, and explore more about how he’s going to navigate through his reckoning with the people who are designing the games.”

“I’ll just say there are a lot of possibilities out there for season 2 storylines,” he teased.

Recognising that the thriller’s first season “ended in an open-ended way,” Hwang said he still thought “this could be good closure for the whole story too.”

He explained: “Season 1 ends with Gi-hun turning back and not getting on the plane to the States. And that was, in fact, my way of communicating the message that you should not be dragged along by the competitive flow of society, but that you should start thinking about who has created the whole system — and whether there is some potential for you to turn back and face it.”

“So it’s not necessarily Gi-hun turning back to get revenge. It could actually be interpreted as him making a very on-the-spot eye contact with what is truly going on in the bigger picture.”

“So I thought that might be a good simple, but ambiguous, way to end the story for Gi-hun.”

Season one of Squid Game is available to watch on Netflix now.
