Warning: This story contains spoilers for season 1 of Squid Game.
It’s time to start prepping yourself for more red and green jumpsuits as Netflix’s Squid Game is returning for season 2.
The South Korean drama — created by Hwang Dong-hyuk — became one of the streaming platform’s most-watched series following its September 2021 premiere and garnered critical claim and accolades, including three Screen Actors Guild Awards and two Critics Choice Awards in 2022. O Yeong-su, who played not-so-sweet old man Oh Il-nam, won a Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe Award for his performance.
Season 1 of the survival drama follows 465 strangers — all suffering crushing debt — as they’re recruited and brought to a remote island to compete in a series of children’s games for a chance to win $38 million. The catch? The losers aren’t just eliminated, they’re killed on the spot.
Netflix officially announced that Squid Game would return for a second season in June 2022. “Red light… GREENLIGHT! Squid Game is officially coming back for Season 2!” the streaming service announced via X.
