Squid Game Creator Says He’s Already In Talks With Netflix For A Third Season

The creator behind the wildly successful Netflix show Squid Game says he's got his eyes set on a third season.

Hwang Dong-hyuk has already agreed to produce a storyline for a second instalment, but it sounds like it's not going to stop there.

Speaking with Korean broadcaster KBS, the show's creator looks like he's only just getting started.

"I'm in talks with Netflix over season 2 as well as season 3. We will come to a conclusion any time soon," he said.

"We know people are waiting, so everyone is working hard to prepare for the next season with an optimistic outlook."

He's also outlined how he reckons the second season will play out after that cliffhanger of a finale.

"The focus will be the story of Seong Gi Hun (played by Lee Jung Jae) as he unravels everything. The plotline of season 2 will be the people Gi Hun meets and the people he chases after."

Hwang Dong-hyuk wasn't sure whether people would want a second series after he poured his blood, sweat and tears into the first one, which took a decade to bring to life.

However, it quickly became the number one show on Netflix around the world and ended up as the streaming service's most watched program ever.

It inspired a million Halloween costumes, social commentary and even led to YouTuber MrBeast creating a real-life Squid Game for his fans.

Hwang said it made sense to capitalise on his success and keep Seong Gi Hun's story alive.

Dong-hyuk told the Associated Press: "There's been so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice.

"But, I will say there will indeed be a second season. It's in my head right now. I'm in the planning process currently. But I do think it's too early to say when and how that's going to happen."

He initially told The Guardian that he wanted to make a film before he went back to Squid Game, however who knows whether Netflix will sweeten the deal to make sure the creator focuses his time on a second season.

The show is about how 456 debt-ridden South Koreans get recruited to play a series of games for 45.6 billion won.

If you lose a game, you die. Pretty simple.
