The South Korean series “Squid Game” became the biggest hit of all time for a Netflix series. A huge success which obviously calls for a season 2. The creator has hinted at some information on these possible new episodes …
Netflix’s Squid Game
The creator of Squid Game took 10 years to find a producer, but it only took a few weeks for the series to become the biggest box of Netflix. Impossible to miss this phenomenon straight from South Korea, halfway between Battle royale and Hunger games (and therefore not to be put in front of everyone’s eyes). As a reminder, the series features a mysterious game in which 456 participants must survive several deadly trials to try to win the jackpot and thus pay off their debts.
The episodes focus more particularly on one player, Gi-hun, played by Lee Jung-jae. It is through his experience that we discover the machination behind these mysterious games. At the end of the first season, he manages to find out (in part) how they work. And the twists and turns are numerous! The open ending suggested that a season 2 of Squid Game was not impossible, and the formalization came from its creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk, a few weeks ago. Netflix should therefore not take long to officially announce it.
The first info on season 2
Faced with such success, the platform could not stop there. New episodes of the series should therefore arrive shortly, and already, the creator has shared some information.
During an interview given to Entertainment Weekly On December 7, Hwang Dong-hyuk said:
In season 1, Gi-hun experiences it quite passively, and his humanity shines through in certain situations. I think in season 2, with what he’s learned from playing the games, he’s going to be a lot more active.
Regarding the Front Man (the mysterious character with the black hood), we should learn more about him:
The Front Man is a former winner of the games but he chose to become Front Man. He’s a bit like Darth Vader. Some end up Jedi and others become Darth Vader. Gi-hun should also be faced with these kinds of dilemmas and will have to make a choice.
So it’s highly likely that Gi-hun will somehow return to participate in a new Squid Game. Either as a player (unlikely) or as an organizer, even Front Man. In the last episode, he chose to stay in Korea instead of joining his daughter in the United States. Perhaps he will decide to bring down the organization of these sordid games?
