Netflix has officially confirmed that the acclaimed Korean survival thriller Squid Game is getting a second season and has released the first 10-second teaser along with the first plot details.
The first season of Squid Game / Squid Game was released in 2021 and was a tremendous success – in 17 days from the date of release, the show was watched on 111 million accounts , which at that time was an absolute Netflix record. Back at the end of 2021, Hwang Dong Hyuk confirmed the start of work on the new season and promised to return Song Ki Hoon, the main character of the first season, to the plot. In January, Netflix top management confirmed that Squid Game will definitely get a sequel and lay the foundation for the universe, but the formal announcement took place only now.
