    “It took 12 years to bring the first season of ‘Squid Game’ to life last year. But it took 12 days for ‘Squid Game’ to become the most popular Netflix series ever,” director Hwang shared on social media. “As the writer, director and producer of ‘Squid Game,’ a huge shout out to fans around the world. Thank you for watching and loving our show.

    Hwang’s statement continued by teasing the fans with a bit of the story of the follow-up season. He revealed that the protagonist Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) and the masked antagonist – the Front Man (Lee Byung-hun) will both return.

    The man in the suit with ddakji might be back,” Hwang wrote. He went on to reveal that the boyfriend of Young-hee, the gigantic killer animatronic doll that introduces viewers to how deadly the game is, will also come back.

    Join us once more for a whole new round,” the statement concluded.

    The second season of ‘Squid Game‘ was essentially a known thing after the show’s superlative success on Netflix. By a long shot, the first season marked the streamer’s biggest TV show ever, logging 1.65 billion hours of viewing in the first four weeks of its release last fall.

    The director had hinted at a second season in the weeks following the show’s breakthrough. Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos officially confirmed more episodes were on the way in January. Hwang has since then indicated that a follow-up would soon delight fans. The episodes are likely to premiere near the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024.

    In the meantime, the series emerged as an awards heavyweight. The show scored a slew of nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. It included wins for Lee Jung-jae and HoYeon Jung in their respective gendered categories for outstanding performances in a drama series. Netflix is now eyeing the Emmy season. Nominations will be announced on July 12.

    Netizens React To The New Teaser

    The sudden announcement about ‘Squid Game’ Season 2 surprised fans. Some netizens were confused and creeped out, while others reacted positively to the news with heartwarming comments and, of course, memes.

    Some fans were of the opinion that adding another ‘creepy’ doll isn’t the best decision, while others asserted that Young-hee and Cheol-su can be the new ‘power couple’.

    Few social media users were concerned about the quality of the content of the second season. Some of them were just trying to voice their high expectations.
