Squid Game was such a massive hit that it still holds the all-time viewership record for Netflix — over a year after its release! Thankfully, Season 2 is on its way.
The news was confirmed by Netflix back in June, along with a message from series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk.
Here's what we know so far:
1. Season 2 will begin filming in 2023, which means it won't be on Netflix for a looooong time still. The absolute earliest will be 2024.
2. Hwang wrote and directed every episode of the first season, which took a lot out of him. He won't be doing that again for Season 2.
3. That said, we don't know how the production will be affected by the WGA strike...if it's affected at all.
If Hwang ended up using a writers' room or is part of the WGA himself, the season could be on hold until the strike is over.
