The series chronicles the adventure of several medicine and adult contestants based on classic Korean and children’s games.

You can see everything known about the second season of the series below…
IS THE SECOND TERM CONFIRMED?
After months of speculation, Netflix announced that the ‘Squid Game’ series, one of the most watched series, has been renewed for the second term. However, Netflix, which released a short teaser, released a statement with the creator of the series, Hwang Dong-hyunk. “Last year, ‘Squid Game’ took 12 years to complete the first period. But it took 12 days to become Netflix’s most recognizable series,” the statement said. Thank you for watching and loving our series.”
At the same time, it was stated in the statement that the winners of the first period, Seong Gi-hun and Front Man, will also be in the second period. “And now Gi-hun is back. Front Man is back. Second term is coming. The character wearing the squad dress can presumably return. At the same time, you will meet Young-hee’s boyfriend Cheol-su. Join us once again in a new round,” said Hwang Dong-hyunk, signaling that there are new characters.
WHO WILL BE IN THE STAFF?
Since the ‘Squid Game’ series was a death game, most of the team in the first period lost their lives. Only the winner Gi-hun survived in the game, and Kang Sae-byeok, the favorite of the series, also died. Although it is not certain what the story will be in the new period, we claim that we will see new characters in the second period.
WILL THERE BE A THIRD PERIOD?
The most watched Korean drama of recent periods may go beyond the second period. In an interview with the Korea Times last year, Hwang said that a third term for ‘Squid Game’ is possible. “We are currently discussing the possibility of a third term with Netflix along with the second term,” said Hwang, adding, “We will reach a conclusion in a short time.” Confirming these news, Netflix underlined that the third period is not at the production stage now.
WHEN WILL THE SECOND TERM BE PUBLISHED?
In an interview with Vanity Fair in June, Hwang stated that the second period will be published at the end of 2023 or at the beginning of 2024. At the same time, stating that Gi-hun was the only character approved in the second period, Hwang said, “Humanity will be put to another test with these games,” and stated that we will watch different games and challenges in the second period.
