Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has teased the possibility of not one but two more seasons of the hit Netflix series.

The dystopian drama features adults playing deadly challenges inspired by childhood playground games on a secret island.

The gruesome series became a worldwide success and was watched by 11 million Netflix users in the first 28 days. 

Speaking with the Korean broadcaster KBS, Hwang once again confirmed talks are underway with Netflix for a second season and suggested a third season is also in the pipeline.

He said: “I’m in talks with Netflix over season two as well as season three,” The Korea Times reports.

This is the first time the director and writer has hinted at a potential third season, but based on the huge success of the first batch of episodes, it should come as no surprise.

Netflix has not confirmed when the second season will debut, however Hwang has revealed he is currently working on ideas for the next instalment.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter in October he explained there were other stories 'that had not been addressed' yet.

"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," he explained.

"I could also go into the story of that recruiter in the suit who plays the game of ddakji 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."

Earlier this month Hwang further explored his ideas for season two and explained how he sees the main character Gi-hun (Lee Jung-Jae), who of course won the game at the end of season one, fits into the show’s future.

He said that Gi-hun could go through a similar transformation to the Front Man, who we learn in season one is a previous winner of the game. 

“[He was] also a past winner but became a Front Man, it’s like Darth Vader,” said Dong-hyuk. “Some end up Jedi and some become Darth Vader, right?” 

I think that maybe Gi-hun will go through a certain critical point where he is put through a test as well,” he added.

Lee Jung-Jae then teased: “If I had to be a Front Man, I would be the most scary Front Man you would ever see.”

Dong-hyuk previously told Associated Press that “Gi-Hun will come back, and he will do something for the world,” but by the looks of this latest teaser, it may not be a straightforward as we think.

A release date for season two of Squid Game hasn’t been confirmed yet and the show’s writer-director said he’s just in the planning stages right now. 

Squid Game season one is available to stream on Netflix.
