Squid Game Creator Explains What He Wants To Do For Season 2

The creator of Squid Game has opened up about where he could imagine a second season going.

While Netflix hasn't commissioned another instalment of Hwang Dong-hyu's gory and twisted psychological TV show, it's since become the most watched series in the platform's history.

So it would be a massive surprise if they didn't go deeper into the world of the Squid Game's main characters.

Speaking to CNN, Hwang said: "I have left some things open to discuss in the second season if that happens.

"I want to unfold The Frontman's (played by Lee Byung Hun) past and Joonho's (the police officer who infiltrated the fortress and was played by Wi Ha Joon) story and the man who carries around ddakjis in his briefcase (played by Gong Yoo)'s story.

"These weren't necessarily explained in the first season so I'd like to explain those parts in season 2."

To be fair, those were the big question marks confronting viewers at the end of the first season.

There have been a lot of fan theories about the man who recruits the contestants with his ddakjis, with the main one suggesting the colour chosen denotes whether a person will be a game player or one of the guards.

We also only got a tiny snippet of The Frontman and Joonho's relationship, as well as just a mention that the former had actually won a previous Squid Game.

Viewers are also dubious about whether Joonho is actually dead. While he was shot and fell off a cliff, we can't be absolutely certain he died.

The ending certainly left the door open for a second season as a red-haired Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) stops himself getting on a plane to America and vows to hunt down the people who run the deadly competition.

While everyone is likely desperate for more, it appears the show's creator is a little more apprehensive.

He told Varitey: "I don't have well developed plans for Squid Game 2. It is quite tiring just thinking about it. But if I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone. I'd consider using a writers' room and would want multiple experienced directors."

It took Hwang 10 years to get his idea to life so we could be waiting a bit before we see the incredible game being played on our screens once again.

The creator slash director added to CNN: "Since writing, producing, and directing a series alone is a lot so I'm worried when I think about filming season 2."
