The “Squid Game” created by Huang Donghe has aroused the interest of many people and is becoming an exciting amusement facility. The thrilling plot and thrilling performance will surely make the audience want to stop. The show originally premiered in September 2021, and fans are happy to see whether this survival-based show will return in season 2. Let’s find out, shall we?
Is it coming back for season 2?
The first season of “Squid Game” will be released on Netflix on September 17, 2021. There are nine episodes in this season, each with a duration of 3262 minutes.
As for season 2, neither the producer nor Netflix revealed any information about the future of the show. Typically, the expansion is based on various criteria, including the response to criticism, the number of viewers, and the revenue generated by the production for the parties involved. Although the second season of “Game of Squid” has not been renewed, we can hope for this possibility in the future.
After all, it took Dong Hyuk about ten years to perfect this idea that finally became a reality. As the show is included in the Netflix catalog and attracts international attention, this horror drama is likely to be released again. In other words, it all depends on whether the show meets the streaming giant’s renewal standards. If this happens and the series gets a new round of green light, we can assume that the second season of “Squid Game” will be released sometime in the third quarter of 2022 or later.
Who is going to be coming back?
In the first season, Lee Jung-Jae played Ki Hoon, who was in debt, Park Hae Soo played Shang Woo and Xiao Ki Hoon, and Oh Young Soo played Il Nam, an older man who loves games. We also saw Wi Hajoon (Joonho), Jung Hoyeon (Saebyeok), Heo Sungtae (Deoksu), Lee Yoomi (Jiyeong), Tripati Anupam (Ali), and Kim Youngok (Kihoon’s mother).
If “Squid Game” is renewed for the second round, we can expect some major characters to resume their roles. However, since the series belongs to the survival horror type, the contestants are actually playing death games. Many characters lost their lives in the process, making it impossible for them to return in season 2. We can assume that there will be a new cast or some pairs A significant addition to the existing lineup.
What to expect from season 2?
The first season of “Squid Game” tells a group of people who only know about failure, poverty, and broken bones all their lives. However, the team gained a new life by participating in a mysterious game that promised huge cash prizes to the winner.
Although there is nothing unusual about the beginning of the game, as the boundary between life and death becomes blurred, it quickly becomes a terrible and terrifying struggle for survival. Huge cash rewards encourage players to take one terrible behavior after another without regretting the lives of other activists.
There is only one winner, the boundary between good and bad becomes blurred, and the struggle for survival becomes even more terrifying. If there is a second season, the storyline can start from where the first season ends, following the few survivors of the first game. They can discover the secrets behind this pathological game, and even unite to fight the people who control the entire show. On the other hand, the potential Season 2 may focus on a new group of participants who are playing the same deadly game with different challenges.
