There’s also a chance that Joon Ho survived his fall as Squid Game follows the TV troupe of characters who are believed to have died off-screen, but aren’t actually dead at all.
Gi-Hon Infiltrates/Sabotages the games?
Scarred by his time spent in the games, Gi-Hon was on the road to recovery and had finally begun moving on with his life. But to Gi-Hon’s horror, he witnessed the same games salesman who had recruited him, attempt to recruit a new potential games candidate.
He couldn’t confront the game recruiter, but he was able to take the card away from the new candidate. By phoning the number on the card Gi-Hon once again spoke with the Frontman, confirming that he was still being watched by the organization. Refusing to board his plane that would take him to see his daughter, Gi-Hon instead leaves, heavily insinuating that he is out for revenge against those responsible.
Gi-Hon has the money, and the motivation of revenge to get back at those responsible for the games. Technically, Gi-Hon is not the only survivor, as there have been previous winners of the games going back a few decades. If he can find any like-minded victims, together they may be able to pool their money and find a way to infiltrate where the games take place.
The Identity of the VIPs revealed?
So far we’ve only seen the face reveal of one of the game’s VIPs, which almost lead to Joon Ho getting evidence to the mainland.
The games wouldn’t be possible without the backing of the VIPs, which means if they can be taken down then so will the games. Gi-Hun knows of the existence of the VIPs thanks to Il Nam revealing that the games were simply a form of escapism for him and his rich friends. If Gi-Hun can figure out who Il Nam was in business with, then Gi-Hun may be able to target them.
Who are the cast members of Squid Game season 2?
So far there are only three confirmed cast members listed to return for the second season of Squid Game.
Lee Jung Jae, who recently won an Emmy award for his performance in the first season of Squid Game, will return to reprise his role as Seong Gi Hoon. His Emmy win was history-making, as he became the first person from a foreign-language show to win the best actor in a drama.
Lee Byung Hun will return to reprise his role as Hwang In-ho aka the Front Man. He recently starred in the licensed Netflix Original series Our Blues.
Gong Yoo has also been listed to reprise his role as The Salesman, but how large of a role has yet to be officially confirmed. A brilliant actor in his own right, we would certainly love to see more of Gong Yoo in the Squid Game.
When could we expect to see Squid Game season 2 on Netflix?
All evidence points to a 2024 release date, thanks to comments made by the creator and director Hwang Dong-hyuk.
Thanks to the comments made by Hwang Dong-hyuk, the wait for Squid Game season 2 is going to be extensive.
As we alluded to above, the director is reluctant to return to Squid Game without help from seasoned directors and a decent writing room. But, he is also reluctant to return to the series so soon after finishing when he has plans to return working feature films such as KO Club (Killing Old Men Club), which he is currently drafting and pitched the premise as an inter-generational war.
What is the production status of Squid Game season 2?
Official Production Status: Pre-Production (Last Updated: 14/09/2014)
With a planned 2024 release date, Hwang Dong-hyuk will be hard at work writing the script and story for the next season of Squid Game.
There is no word on when filming will begin on the second season of Squid Game, however, it must happen sometime in the near future as lead actor Lee Jung Jae is set to reprise his role In-Nam, from the 2020 horror Deliver Us From Evil in the spin-off series Ray. Production will take place in 2023, but before or after Squid Game season 2 is currently unconfirmed.
