Netflix and “Squid Game” director Hwang Dong-Hyuk discussed about the possibility of new seasons.
Season 2 and Season 3 [of ‘Squid Game’] are now being discussed with Netflix, according to an interview with Hwang Dong Hyuk on KBS on December 28.
To put it another way, everyone is working hard to prepare for the next season with a positive perspective according to the show’s director.
Seong Gi Hun (Lee Jung Jae) will be the main character in Season 2, according to Hwang Dong-Hyuk, who also disclosed the season’s plotline.
Season 2’s plot is intended to revolve around the characters Gi Hun meets and those he can persuade.
New plot details for a potential second season were revealed by Hwang.
CNN spoke with the show’s creator, who said that the show’s less-explored characters, such as the Front Man who leads the Game and the recruiter, performed by Train to Busan star Gong Yoo, would like to be shown their backstories.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, the creator went into great depth about the Front Man. Junho’s older brother, the mystery master teacher, is also a former police officer, according to his brother.
He also hinted that the upcoming season would have an effect on the Korean police drama’s plot. He was right. Netflix issued a statement later today confirming that they had held a wide-ranging discussion. They discussed the prospect of a third season for “Squid Game,” as well as a number of other topics. What was the subject matter?
Squid Game was released by Netflix in 2021, and for good cause. All of us were brought to tears and shocked by the show’s depiction of poverty and healthcare inequities in a dystopian capitalist society.
The Korean series about 456 individuals who are lured to play (extremely) fatal versions of children’s games has a reach of 142 million accounts in its first 28 days of release and is Netflix’s most sampled original series ever. Previously, Netflix defined a “view” as two minutes of any given programme. Bridgerton received 82 million accounts in the first four weeks, but Squid Game surpassed that.
When Dong-hyuk confessed that he had a rejected script from 2008, it cost him a lot of money because he couldn’t sell it.
For Squid Game, the Nielsen U.S. streaming ratings were at their highest for numerous weeks, with the show clocking more than 3 billion minutes viewed across its nine episodes.
When will Squid Game Season 2 be released?
Even then, there has been no formal word from the streaming behemoth yet.
However, the second season will not be released until the end of the year.
Due to the following factors, no one can expect it to be released on a streaming service this year.
Netflix has yet to make an official statement about the second season of Squid Game.
Even though Season 1 was released about two years ago, work on Season 2 has yet to commence.
So, use your math!
According to another rumour, a decision on a second season is getting closer.
Hwang informed the press in Los Angeles that they started planning for the second season by focusing on the questions they got and asked for the upcoming season at a screening with the show’s actors.
No, I’m referring to the show’s cast.
Lee Jung-Jae and Wi Ha-Joon may join the cast of the Squid Game, as well as Lee Byung-hun, Gong Yoo, and Seong Gi-hun, who all died in the programme, save for the evil recruiter.
What does the conclusion of Season 1 of Squid Game signifies?
Dong-hyuk elaborated on the subject. This was a deliberate choice on the part of Gi-hun, who had no desire to visit the United States.
Dong-disenchantment hyuk’s with the economic imbalance he perceives as a result of capitalist societies is the film’s central theme (especially those without universal healthcare).
How much money did Season 1 make?
According to an internal Netflix letter seen by Bloomberg, Squid Game produced $891 million in “impact value” for Netflix. Producing the event costs roughly $ 20 million, and it generates $871 million in sales for the business.
