SQUID Game is the Netflix thriller that everyone is talking about and its creator has dropped the biggest hint yet that a second instalment could very well be in the pipeline.
Since its explosive debut on September 17, the Korean drama series has surpassed all expectations, topping the Netflix charts in 90 countries and becoming the streaming services’ biggest ever series launch.
The drama follows desperate, debt-ridden contestants who are offered the chance to win millions by taking part in a mysterious tournament.
There’s a cash prize of 45.6bn won (£28m) at stake, but only if the contestants manage to win a series of games traditionally played by children.
Since its overwhelming success, series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has remained tight-lipped about a second season – until now.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Hwang teased: “There are some other stories in the series that have not been addressed.
“For example, the story of the police officer and the story of his brother, ‘The Front Man’.
“I could also go into the story of that recruiter in the suit who plays the game of ddajki with Gi-hun and gives him the card in the first episode.
“I’ll just say, there are a lot of possibilities out there for season two storylines.”
TikTok is the home of people sharing memes and theories about Squid Game, with fingers pointing to an eventual second season.
Intriguingly, viewers have since come up with countless theories about the show and the characters, including one viral theory that suggests Oh Il-nam is Gi-hun’s father – and the evidence is damning.
The creator has yet to address the father and son theory, so we’ll just have to wait and see what happens if the second season ever comes to fruition.
Squid Game is available to stream on Netflix.
