Netflix binge watchers often complain that there isn’t a recent series or show worth watching. But honestly, those people don’t have the right eye to pick up the amazing Korean series on Netflix and are ready to be protected. From Crash landing on You and Itaewon Class to Love Alarm and Kingdom, there’s a lot of Korean waiting to be discovered and worth a try.
But assuming you haven’t seen anything like this and after reading this introduction, now that you’re interested in getting started, we can suggest you start your journey by watching Squid Game. This brand new drama is arguably the most popular K-Drama exported by Netflix.
So… since the first season of Squid Game ended a few weeks ago, let’s take a look at season 2 of Squid Game.
Expected Release Date for Squid Game Season 2
The streaming giant has not made a public statement regarding the renewal of Squid Game for a second installment. Still, if things go according to the rumors flying around, the statement for Squid Game Season 2 should be made any time now. The show’s director Hwang Dong-Hyuk shared his view in a recent interview with YTN that the initial idea for this show came about in 2008, so he had plenty of time to plan a bigger picture behind the first episode.
The first announcement of season 1 was made by Netflix in 2019. That means the first season took almost two years to wrap things up. But most of the works for season 1 were done under the pandemic situation. Now that the problem is gradually stabilizing, we can say that Squid Game Season 2 is in the 3rd or 4e quarter 2022.
Expected cast for Squid Game Season 2
Most of the 456 contestants in Season 1 have died, except for Lee Jung Jae, who will likely return to star as Seong Gi Hun in Squid Game Season 2. Some deceased characters, such as Park Hae Soo, Oh Yeong Su, and Jung Ho Yeon , may also briefly reprise their previous roles in past flashbacks, but most of the second season’s characters may be newcomers.
Expect Squid Game Season 2 Plot
As we saw at the end of Season 1 of Squid Game, the player Gi Hun successfully won the game through all the obstacles he encountered. But is the game really over? After the death of the creator of Squid Game, he finds out that the game will continue with new players. Considering all the facts, we can easily assume that Gi Hun will once again appear on stage to bring an end to this game, following the vows he took in those final moments.
Anyway, there is also a strange sense of closure present in that scene. So it’s pretty hard to believe that Gi Hun will be able to wipe out the game’s existence along with the creator, even though he has the money he’s recently made.
