Debuting on September 27, the hit Netflix series tells an imaginative, unorthodox story in which 456 contestants risk their lives in a mysterious survival game for a chance to win 45.6 billion won.

AceShowbiz -“Squid Game” writer/director Hwang Dong-hyuk discusses the future of his hit Netflix series. During a new interview, Hwang teased that two more seasons of the thriller series are probably coming soon.

Speaking with KBS (Korean Broadcasting System) on Tuesday, December 28, Hwang said that he is in talks with Netflix about season 2 “as well as season 3.” He went on to share, “We will come to a conclusion any time soon.”

Hwang added, “We know that many people are waiting, so everyone is working hard to prepare for the next season with a positive outlook.”

Netflix confirmed the claims on the same day. “It’s true that we are discussing a wide variety of possibilities for ‘Squid Game’, including the production of a season 3, but nothing has yet been set in stone,” the streaming giant said in a statement.

Back in November, Hwang shared that he had been working on a season two storyline. “I do have a basic storyline for season two – it’s all in my head – and I am currently in the brainstorming stage,” the writer-director said during a special screening and Q&A. “It will happen, someday, but as for when I cannot tell you the details.”

Hwang didn’t really say much about the potential plot in season 2. However, he confirmed that the sophomore season would follow Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) and his investigation of those behind the deadly, titular tournament.

Debuting on September 27, “Squid Game” tells “an imaginative, unorthodox story in which 456 contestants risk their lives in a mysterious survival game — involving multiple rounds of childhood games — for a chance to win 45.6 billion won.” The show quickly becomes a global phenomenon.

It was officially named the biggest launch for a new show on Netflix, surpassing “Bridgerton“, after it reached 111 million viewers in less than a month. Additionally, “Squid Game” is among Netflix’s Top 10 list in around 94 countries. The dystopian show is also the platform’s first-ever Korean series to reach the No. 1 spot in the U.S.
