Netflix has seen the most profitable venture yet where Hwang Dong-hyuk created Korean Drama Squid Game. The show that hit the streaking platform in September became a global phenomenon in no time.

According to Comicbook, the creator of Squid Game said: “So there has been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you don’t leave us a choice. But I will say that there will actually be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I am currently in the planning process. But I think it is too early to say when and how it will happen. “

Because I have received so much love and support from [viewers]of course I have to play him again if there is a season 2, “said the director of Squid Game. “But at this point I don’t know anything about how the story will unfold, or how the characters are going to change, or if there will be new characters being added to the series. I don’t know anything right now. And I also don’t know if the role of Gi-hun was still the main role or as a supporting role on the sidelines. But whatever it is, of course I’d have to say yes. “
