Unfortunately Season 2 of Squid Game is not coming anytime soon. The show’s writer-director Hwang Dong-hyuk is naturally pleased with the show’s success. Making “Squid Game” was a long and stressful process and not something he is planning to repeat or, at least not yet. Maybe sometime in the future, it will happen. After all, the hit k-drama has swept the globe since its premiere September 17, reaching no. 1 on 90 countries in 10 days and becoming the streamer's biggest ever non-English show.
"Squid Game" Season 2 is not coming anytime soon
Also, Netflix hasn't dropped any hints on whether or not it will renew its most popular K-drama ever, but it has only been 10 days since the premiere. The streamer usually waits a few months to renew its U.S. shows, and there's less info on their international renewals to see a pattern. If the show does get renewed, there would be quite a wait for the Season 2 premiere. Squid Game was first announced in 2019, with production taking two years to complete. So even with the most optimistic timeline, Season 2 probably wouldn't arrive until early 2023.
