Netflix has produced some of the biggest hits over the years, including ‘Money Heist,’ ‘Bridgerton,’ ‘Dark,’ ‘Emily in Paris,’ ‘Stranger Things,’ and others. But, without a doubt, the K-drama ‘Squid Game‘ has been a worldwide phenomenon since its September 17 release, earning critical acclaim and Golden Globes.
The series has become the most-watched in history, and it has inspired hundreds of Halloween costumes. Following the phenomenal success of the first season, show creator Hwang Dong-hyuk addressed the possibility of a Season 2. “I almost feel like you (fans) force us to,” he told the Associated Press.

Squid Game Season 2 cast, who’s in it?

Squid Game Season 2 plot, what is it about?
The show’s creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk, spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about what could happen in a second season: “It’s true that season one ended in an open-ended manner, but I actually thought that this could be a good closure for the entire storey as well,” he explained. However, he believes that “some other stories in the series have not been addressed.”
“For instance, the storey of the police officer and his brother, The Front Man,” he explained. He also wants to expand on the storey of “that recruiter in the suit who plays ddakji with Gi-hun and gives him the card in the first episode,” as well as learn more about Gi-past hun’s and what he plans to do next.
