Squid Game creator on possible storylines for second season

Turns out there are a lot of directions the show can go in.

If, like the rest of the world, you were absolutely hooked on Squid Game, then you're probably wondering what a second season might look like.


As it turns out, the show's creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk has the same idea.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hwang discussed potential storylines.

"There are some other stories in the series that haven't been addressed," he said. "For example, the story of the police officer and the story of his brother, The Front Man."

He continued: "I could also go into the story of that recruiter in the suit who plays the game of ddakji with Gi-hun and gives him the card in the first episode.


"I'll just say there are a lot of possibilities out there for season 2 storylines."

While Squid Game hasn't officially been renewed for more seasons, we feel that given its popularity, it is extremely likely the show will get a second installment.

The South Korean survival drama made history as Netflix's biggest ever series launch, after reaching 111 million viewers in the first 28 days of its release.


It beats the previous record-holder Bridgerton, which gained 82 million views from Netflix users over the same time period after its release.

At the finale of season one, we see a withdrawn Gi-hun, traumatised from the competition and uninterested in spending any of his money.

However, after discovering that Oh Il-nam was actually the mastermind behind the games rather than a real participant, he fulfils promises made to Sae-byeok and arranges for her brother to be cared for by Sang-woo's mother.

Our protagonist then witnesses one of the game's recruiters attempting to ensnare potential participants at the train station. He snatches the card out of the player's card and heads to the airport to visit his daughter in the US. Before boarding, he calls the number, and is told to get on the plane. Instead, he abandons his travel plans and seems intent on putting an end to the games for good.
