After teasing us for months with updates of renewal from both the showrunner and execs, Netflix has officially announced that a Squid Game sequel will be arriving soon.
The streaming service released a teaser for the announcement that read:
“It took 12 years to bring the first season of ‘Squid Game’ to life last year. But it took 12 days for ‘Squid Game’ to become the most popular Netflix series ever,” reads the statement from director Hwang. “As the writer, director and producer of ‘Squid Game,’ a huge shout out to fans around the world. Thank you for watching and loving our show.”
Squid Game season 1 was released on September 2021 and quickly became the streaming service’s biggest TV show title ever, logging 1.65 billion hours of viewing in the first four weeks of its release.
There’s no official release date yet, but we can expect Squid Game season 2 anytime between 2023 to 2024.
