While season 2 is yet to start production, it was revealed that “Squid Game” may even have season number 3.
The news was revealed by show director and producer Hwang Dong-Hyuk, who told KBS in Korea that he is in talks with Netflix over season 2 as well as season 3.
“We will come to a conclusion any time soon,” he said, as revealed by Korea Times.
It was just last month that Hwang confirmed that he will be helming the second season, and that it will feature the story of Gi-hun, the winner of the deadly contest.
The news came following his earlier statement that he had no plans to helm a sequel. Hwang had said that making the said show was a long and stressful process – something that he would rather not repeat for the time being.
“I am not great at team work,” said the director, who also wrote the said series. “In my earlier days, I’d drink half a bottle of soju to get the creative juices flowing. I can’t do that any more. Writing (Squid Game) was harder than normal for me as it was a series, not a film. It took me six months to write and rewrite the first two episodes. Then I consulted verbally with friends, and picked up clues for improvements through my own pitching and from their responses.”
“But if I were to do it, I would not do it alone. I would consider using a writers’ room and would want multiple experienced directors.”
“Squid Game”, which was released earlier this year, became the most-watched Netflix show of all time, surpassing previous record-holder, “Bridgerton”.
