Squid Game Season 2 is very much expected after the successful first season of the show on Netflix. Squid Game is the latest addition to the list of shows from South Korea on Netflix.

This show follows the story of the lives of a group of people who have fallen victim to the hands of poverty for a major time in their life.

We see their lives changing forever where they finally get an invitation to be a part of a survival game. This game would provide them with a big sum of money.

There are several nervous and sudden twists in the plot of the game, which will make all the participants in it put their lives at risk while being a part of Squid Game.

The first season of Squid Game was directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk and has been successfully able to bring up a huge interest among the fans with the chilling turn of events as the game proceeds.

The captivating storyline and the actors’ amazing performances in the first season definitely ensure that all the viewers will be wanting a Squid Game Season 2.

The show was first released in the month of September this year. The fans are very excited to know whether there will be a Squid Game Season 2.

Squid Game Season 2 Release Date: Is it is Renewed or Cancelled? 

On the 17th of September, 2021, the first season of Squid Game came up entirely on Netflix. There were a total of nine episodes in the show, and each of them had runtimes that ranged from 32-62 minutes.

Until now, neither Netflix nor the producers have given any information about whether there will be a Squid Game Season 2.

Renewal or bringing in a totally new season depends on several factors such as the number of viewers who have seen the show in the first season, the critical response of these viewers, and the revenue that the first season of the show has brought in.

Although there has been no confirmed news of Squid Game Season 2 till now, we are sure that there will be a new season in the future.

Dong-hyuk had spent over ten years on the idea of the project, and now it has come to reality. The first season of the show has got a lot of attention all over the world, so we are sure that if Squid Game Season 2 comes, we will get to see it under the Netflix banner.

Everything now depends currently on the criteria on which the streaming platform can renew the show. If the streaming platform receives the green light from everywhere, then we are sure to see Squid Game Season 2 sometime in the third quarter of 2022 or maybe a bit later a well.

If we get to see Squid Game Season 2, we can surely expect that some of the primary cast members will be returning in their main roles.

The show belongs to the genre of survival horror, where all the participants are a part of a death game. We will see several characters whose lives will come to an end in the show. Thus it will not be possible for them to return in Squid Game Season 2.

If we see that the show is following the same premise for the upcoming season, then we can surely say that there will be several new cast members and a few interesting additions to the lineup of actors in Squid Game Season 2.

What could be the possible plot of Squid Game Season 2?

In Squid Game Season 1, we see a group of people who have been well acquainted with failure, backbreaking struggle, and poverty throughout the entire span of their life.

All these people get a totally new aspect of life as they enter into this mysterious game. This game promises them that the winner will be provided with a huge cash award.

The beginning of the game is very simple, and we do not find anything unusual. But as the events start proceeding, we see that there are several chilling and terrifying fights for survival.

There are situations where there is a question between life and death. All the players have the massive cash prize as their goal, and they go on committing several crimes one after the other with no thoughts on the life of the other contestants.

As there can only be one winner in the game, the main battle is to survive and, in the process, gets even more horrifying as the difference between the good and the bad gets erased.

If at all we get to see a Squid Game Season 2, then the storyline will start off from where it ended in the first season of the show.

All the members will discover the mystery that is hidden in the gruesome game or even band together to put a fight against the entire show.

There is also a possibility that Squid Game Season 2 will focus on a totally new set of people who will be playing the same game but with different challenges and different approaches to the same.

Stay connected with MediaScrolls to know more about Squid Game Season 2 and when it will be releasing. Judging from the reviews of the first season, we will surely get to see an upcoming season in the next year.
