In an interview with Associated Press, writer and director of the acclaimed Korean series, Hwang Dong-hyuk said that season two will go ahead.
"There’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice!" Hwang said on Tuesday.
“But I will say there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen."
Hwang also added that Gi-hun, the protagonist of the show played by Lee Jung-jae, will return, "I promise you this, Gi-hun will return. He will do something for the world."
'Squid Game' took the world by storm last month and was Netflix's biggest series launch in its history, watched by 111 million viewers worldwide in 17 days.
Hwang stated recently that during the process of making series one, he lost six teeth due to the stress it caused. Speaking to The Guardian he admitted, "It was physically, mentally and emotionally draining. I kept having new ideas and revising the episodes as we were filming so the amount of work multiplied."
Let's hope season two is a little less stressful. The man only has a certain amount of teeth.
