The knockout Korean thriller has practically beaten competitors around the world. Since its premiere on September 17, squid game has risen to Netflix’s Top 10 in at least sixty-six countries.

While fans and the CEO of Netflix are more than ready for Season 2, squid game‘s writer and director Hwang Dong-hyuk is still recovering from the exhausting process of making the first season. Watch Netflix ready to drop season 2, but Hwang is looking for a vacation (at least from the series).

Netflix CEO calls squid game “greatest show ever”

In a recent statement from Ted Sarandos, Co-CEO & Head of Content at Netflix, he said: “squid game will definitely be our biggest non-English language show in the world, and has “a very good chance it will be our biggest show ever.”

Based on this statement, Netflix wants to continue squid game for as long as it can take and it’s easy to see why. squid game has proven to be the top show on Netflix right now and has generated a lot of buzz. At the moment almost everyone has started or finished squid game.

For those who have completed the series, ratings for similar shows have increased as squid game fans are looking for something to skip them. Similar East Asian gory shows like Sweet Home & Alice in Borderland are seeing a spike in views again, despite both dropping last year. So, how long will? squid game fans have to wait for season 2?

Showrunner Interested In Making Movies Before Season 2

Writer/Director Hwang Dong-hyuk Revealed in a Variety interview that writing the first season on his own rightly took a lot out of him. Hwang has mainly directed films during his successful career, but still squid game is the first show he ever made.

It took the showrunner nearly six months to write only the first two episodes of the series. It is clear that writing & directing squid game alone proved to be a huge challenge. As a result, he seeks a break from the series.

In the same interview, Hwang Dong-hyuk explained that he may return to produce feature films before making a new season of it. squid game. “If I were to do it, I certainly wouldn’t do it alone. I would consider using a writer’s room and would like multiple experienced directors,” said Hwang.

He added: “I don’t have any well-developed plans for… Squid Game 2. It’s exhausting just thinking about it.”

The director is currently working on a film titled KO club, which is short for “Killing Old Men Club.” The film is said to focus on a war between generations and maybe we can expect the same amount of blood as in squid game.

The wait begins for season 2

Director Hwang Dong-hyuk recently shared with Korean news channel YTN that he first thought about the show’s premise back in 2008, so he’s had plenty of time to flesh out a longer storyline after the first season.

“I wanted to write a story that was an allegory or fable about modern capitalist society, something that depicts extreme competition, a bit like the extreme competition of life. But I wanted it to use the kind of characters we’ve all met in real life,” Hwang told Variety.

With the portrayal of capitalism and the desperation of the economic class, we are sure that Hwang could make countless seasons of such heavy subjects. Meanwhile, if Hwang agrees to make a season 2, we should be aware that it will take some time to reach our screens.

squid game was first announced in 2019, with production taking nearly two years to complete. So even if we follow this optimistic timeline, Season 2 probably won’t premiere before 2023.
