Although it’s been speculated for a while now, Netflix today made it official: Squid Game season 2 is happening. Netflix made the announcement across their social media platforms with the following message to fans from director, writer and executive producer Hwang Dong-hyuk, “It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year. But it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever.” Season 1 saw 456 desperate contestants compete with each other in a mysterious and deadly survival game involving multiple rounds of childhood games to win 45.6 billion won prize money that could change their lives.
