“Squid Game” remains one of the most-watched shows on Netflix, hence it only makes sense that it gets renewed for season 2. Moreover, it holds the record for the highest watch time in the first 28 days after its release.

However, despite these impressive achievements, Squid Game Season 2 faces a significant challenge: leveraging the popularity of its first season. Although it is reassuring that Squid Game star Lee Jung-jae has confirmed that season 2 will be released in December 2024, there is still uncertainty about whether the show can capitalize on the runaway success of its debut season.

“It will be released in December,” Lee said through an interpreter.

Nonetheless, Squid Game has immense potential and has already won audiences with its atypical genre exploring class disparity.

There is no news about the official plot of Squid Game season 2, but it’s likely that characters will once again face deadly versions of innocent children’s games in their quest for a large cash prize to escape debt and poverty. The new cast members might be playing new contestants recruited by the salesman to participate in the twisted games orchestrated by the Front Man.

The return of Lee Jung-jae as Seong Gi-hun and Wi Ha-joon as Hwang Jun-ho in Squid Games Season 2 suggests that these two characters might be both motivated to put an end to the Game. Their efforts to sabotage the Game could unfold alongside the struggles of the new contestants, or they might find themselves compelled to re-enter the Game despite their opposition.

Creator Hwang Dong-hyuk, who will write and direct every episode, has hinted at the possibility of bringing back characters who died in the first season. This suggests that Squid Game season 2 might include flashbacks or unexpected twists related to the events of the first season. However, Hwang has stated that he will not simply repeat the same plot with a new set of characters.
