If there were any doubt about Squid Game returning for Season 2, Netflix made it official by dropping a brief teaser as well as a message from showrunner and creator Hwang Dong-Hyuk.

The streaming service made the announcement Sunday (June 12) at the grand finale of its Emmy For your Consideration showcase — dubbed FYSEE — by releasing a 10-sec animation of Young-Hee, the show’s iconic creepy robot doll. “Red light…GREENLIGHT!” the message reads.

Launched in September, Squid Game follows 456 participants in a deadly survival competition involving childhood games, with the last person standing taking home 45.6 billion won (S$50 mil).

In a letter accompanying the teaser, Hwang also shared a detail or two about the upcoming season — notably about Lee Jung-Jae and Lee Byung-Hun’s characters — which he previously said won’t be launched until end of 2023 or early 2024.

“It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year," he wrote. "But it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever.  As the writer, director, and producer of Squid Game, a huge shout out to fans around the world.

"Thank you for watching and loving our show.  And now, Gi-Hun (returns. The Front Man returns. Season 2 is coming.  The man in the suit with ddakji might be back. You’ll also be introduced to Young-Hee’s boyfriend, Cheol-Su. Join us once more for a whole new round.”

Wait, did he say Young-Hee’s boyfriend? Lovely.

Squid Game made history at the Screen Actor Guild Awards in February when Lee and Jung Ho-Yeon became the first Korean — and Asians, for that matter — actors to win Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Drama in the male and female categories. The nine-part thriller is expected to score a few nominations at this year’s Emmys. The nominations will be out on July 12.
