Squid Game Director Doesn't Rule Out Second Season

Netflix say that Squid Game is currently on track to become its most popular show and the director hasn't ruled out a second season.


The terrifying plot has got some too scared to watch it, yet for a lot of people are already waiting for season two.

Well, director Hwang Dong-hyuk told Variety, last Friday (24 Sept), that he doesn't 'have well developed plans for Squid Game 2'.

He also admitted that he finds it 'it is quite tiring just thinking about it'.

However, fans will be pleased to know that a second season isn't completely off the cards.

Hwang added: "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."

He confessed to Variety that he's prefers not to work in a team, hence why he directed this first season on his own.

"I'm not great at team-work," he concluded.

The premise for the South Korean series is pretty straight forward - a number of players who are short of some cash compete against one other in a selection of deadly children's games, for a $38.5 million (£28m) prize.

If you don't win or decide that you want to leave the competition, well, you probably guess what happens.

The Godfather's 'sleeping with the fishes' phrase comes to mind.

Per IMDb, the Squid Game synopsis reads: "Hundreds of cash-strapped players accept a strange invitation to compete in children's games.

"Inside, a tempting prize awaits with deadly high stakes.

"A survival game that has a whopping 40-million-dollar prize at stake."

It's a show that is not for the faint of heart, and contains some really gruesome and gory scenes, as well as a load of more psychological and existential terror.

If that sounds right up your street, maybe it's time to check it out?

It was released on 17 September, and has shot up the rankings, even unseating the new series of Sex Education in some places.

Of course, it's a vastly different show, but they're both visually stunning in their own special way.

Squid Game stars Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo and Wi Ha-joon.
