Fans of Squid Game, rejoice!
In a recent interview with South Korean news broadcast series, JTBC Newsroom, director Hwang Donghyuk confirmed that there will indeed be a season two of the super popular South Korean Netflix series.
The 50-year-old previously shared that he had no intentions to start work on a second season after “expending all energy” on the first season, but it looks like he’s since changed his mind. Maybe the show's success has something to do with it?
Even better? Donghyuk also revealed some plotlines that he wants to explore in season two.
During the interview, the director shared that apart from feeling exhausted after shooting the first season, the show's popularity put a great amount of pressure on him as well.
“If [the audience’s] expectations are too high, there will [inevitably] be more opportunities where they might end up disappointed,” he said. However, he has since put aside his misgivings, and already has an inkling of what he wishes to focus on for the second season.
