Hwang Dong Hyuk, the creator of Netflix‘s Squid Game has confirmed that Season 2 is on the way. What will Squid Game 2 be like? Check out these 6 predictions!
1. It’s a sequel, not a prequel.
After the series ended, fans began speculating about which direction Season 2 might take. Could it be a prequel about the previous games or, perhaps, an anthology with all new characters?
In his interview with Associated Press, Hwang Dong Hyuk stated that, “Gi Hun will come back. He’ll do something for the world.” This indicates that Squid Game 2 will pick up where Season 1 left off, with Gi Hun challenging the game makers.
2. Are the VIPs actually former players?
From the archives shown in Season 1, we know the games took place for decades around the world and, like Gi Hun, the winners were presumably awarded obscene amounts of cash. The Front Man was a former winner who is now working with the game makers, so who’s to say that some of the VIPs don’t have a similar backstory?
3. There will be more “child’s play.”
Season 1 featured popular Korean children’s games like Red Light Green Light, marbles, and tug of war. Season 2 could incorporate even more of these games from Korea or abroad, such as tag, hide and seek, or spinning tops.
4. The games could totally change.
Season 1’s games were the brainchild of a terminally ill, elderly man filled with nostalgia and a twisted desire to play with his friends one last time. The new game makers could continue with Il Nam’s ideas, or they might have something entirely different in mind.
5. Hwang Jun Ho will survive.
Hwang Jun Ho, played by Wi Ha Joon, “died” after a final confrontation with his missing brother, the Front Man (Lee Byung Hun). If Jun Ho survived, it’s possible that he could team up with Gi Hun. Will the Front Man turn traitor to join them too?
6. The Salesman will return
Gong Yoo played the Saleman, a scout for the games responsible for recruiting players. His was a cameo role, but it’s possible that Gong Yoo could become part of the main cast in Season 2.
