“It is in my head right now. I am in the planning process currently. But I do think it is too early to say when and how that is going to happen. So I will promise you this, Gi-hun (lead character played by Lee Jung-jae) will be back and he will do something for the world,” explained Hwang.

The show, which includes cast members like Jung Hoyeon, Park Hae Soo and Lee Jung-jae, has not officially been given a second season by Netflix so far.
