Following one character's death in the first season, the creator of Squid Game teases a stunning reappearance for Season 2! Squid Game was one of Netflix's quickest and most popular releases in recent months, and it was such a smash that the streaming provider swiftly announced plans for a second season. But one of the biggest concerns that fans have about the show is that, aside from the possibility of a lightning in a bottle success, a second season will be without the majority of the ensemble that made the first season so popular.
Despite the fact that several of these fan favorites perished during the first season, it appears that they or their performers aren't completely off the table. During an interview with Deadline at the PGA Awards, series creator and director Hwang Dong-hyuk discussed the possibility of returning characters from the second season.
"No, because most of them are dead. I'll try something to bring them back to Season 2.”
"Let's say maybe she has a twin sister, you'll see," Dong-hyuk joked about HoYeon Jung, who plays Kang Sae-byeok on Squid Game (and has gone on to win some major honors for her work in the series). That is, assuming the series continues as an anthology of some sort; but, if it continues the series' main tale after Gi-hun, there may not be a logical method to do so.
In any case, it's evident that the resurrection of Squid Game is still a long way off. Dong-hyuk even told Deadline that he hasn't even begun scripting the sequel yet. "There will be more great games, that's all I can say," he said. "I'm just still brainstorming and collecting the ideas for Season 2. I haven't even started with the writing yet." That means it while it may seem difficult to bring back characters right now, that might change as the series progresses!
