First Look At Squid Game Season 2

We all knew Squid Game season 2 was coming, but now Netflix released its first mini teaser and we're extremely hyped.

Listen, the fact that Squid Game is getting a second season has been known ever since the first season ended. That cliffhanger set up the second season perfectly. Even after that, the developers came out and stated that yes, season 2 of Squid Game will come.

Does that make us any less excited about this teaser that's so short that Netflix had to upload it in the form of a YouTube short and not as a normal video? No.

It's giving us absolutely nothing. The teaser, I mean. Thankfully, the teaser didn't just drop without anything else. The director, writer and executive producer Hwang Dong-hyuk decided to post a message for fans as well. And that, we can dissect a lot more than that teaser.

When Will Squid Game Season 2 Release?

Definitely not in 2022. If the show is in early development as of June 2022, then I'd say late 2023 is plausible. Sorry, guys, you'll just have to rewatch season 1 or watch something like Arcane in the meanwhile. Oh, the The Last of Us TV show will also release eventually. You could watch that?

Who Will Return In Squid Game Season 2?

The post from Hwang Dong-hyuk confirms two returning characters, as well as 2 possible returns.

  • Gi-Hun
  • The Front Man
  • The man in the suit with the ddakji – not confirmed (also called, the hottest actor alive, Gong Yoo, watch the Goblin, you'll thank me)
  • Cheol-su – not confirmed (Young-hee is the doll, so another kind of doll for another game?)

Once we get more confirmed characters, we will let you know immediately.

We don't know a lot, and I'd bet that it'll be a while before we will know more than that. Until then, there are a lot of other Korean shows that are worth your time, guys. Pass the time with them.
