The first season of Squid Game had nine episodes and six “games” within those nine episodes. We expect a similar amount for next season. For now, it has not been confirmed.
What is expected to happen in Squid Game 2?
WARNING: BIG SPOILERS AHEAD!
While the end of season 1 certainly made room for a sequel, it’s not entirely clear what a second season would focus on. We expect the main character – player 456 – to return as he has not boarded to see his daughter and we also expect that he will try to take down those who run the game.
Of course, the old man – player 001 – who turned out to be the creator of the game, died in the final episode of season 1 and, since the main character won the prize money after many of the other characters died, there is plenty of room for new cast members. .
That said, Lee Jung-jae, who plays the lead – player 456 – hinted that specific players could have actually survived the games: “My idea is that the masked men carry them all out asap and have surgery on them.” them do to keep them alive’ he explained to DirectTV at a Variety On the Carpet event.
However, writer Hwang Dong-hyuk could take a very different path.
He confirmed to Vanity Fair that the second season will certainly feature another batch of fatal games for contestants, but little else: “Humanity will once again be put to the test by those games,” he said.
However, the way those games are played could be different: “If they were able to talk to each other, interact with each other, I agree there would have been a possibility we would have seen more winners,” he added. he to it. † “I want to ask the question: ‘Is real solidarity between people possible?'”
When Netflix confirmed season 2, it also offered some details. The teaser post told us that Gi-Hun returns, the Front Man returns, the man in the suit with ddakji may be back and we’ll be introduced to Young-hee’s friend, Cheol-su.
