Squid Game Second Season Plot
Squid Game revolves around the interesting story of cash-strapped individuals. They compete against each other in children’s games to win a large sum of money. In case they lose the game, death is the only option. During its release last year, the show was the most-watched series on Netflix globally.
In December last year, Hwang revealed to Korean network KBS, that not only has he finalized the plotline for the second season but he is also in talks with Netflix for the show’s third season. In the same interview, Hwang also talked a bit about Season 2’s storyline. He said, “The focus will be the story of Seong Gi Hun (played by lead actor Lee Jung) unraveling (the mysteries of the organization behind the game). The overarching plotline of Season 2 will be the story of the people that Gi Hun meets and the people he chases after.”
