According to star Lee Jung-jae, Season 2 of Squid Game will begin production in the summer of 2023 and will span approximately ten months, similar to Stranger Things season 5, Season 2 of Squid Game will not be available on Netflix this year.
Squid Game, a Netflix series, follows the story of participants in a large survival game (akin to the Hunger Games) that was disguised as a kid’s game in order to collect money from those in need.
In this new season, 456 people will compete in a variety of non-lethal tasks for a chance to win a whopping $4.56 million in prize money.
Although it is not the same as the fatal games that kept viewers on the edge of their seats, it promises to be just as entertaining and intense.
Because Squid Game ended with the majority of the cast dead, with the exception of Seong Gi-hun, Hwang Jun-ho, and Hwang In-ho—and that evil recruiter—the returning cast members may only comprise Lee Jung-jae, Wi Ha-Joon, Lee Byung-hun, and Gong Yoo.
Reality Show Format
Following the uproar caused by Squid Game earlier this year, it was decided to shift course and adopt a reality program approach.
Reports that some of the games were played in terrible conditions sparked outrage among viewers. Nobody saw the irony of complaints emerging in a program about dangerous survival.
Twists And Turns
Knowing the Squid Game designers and those who watched season 1, there will undoubtedly be plenty of shocks, twists, and turns to keep fans interested in season 2.
Even though no specific release date has been confirmed, “Squid Game: The Challenge” is expected to hit theaters in 2024.
