Squid Game season two is officially going ahead and its creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk, has teased a dark plot twist for the next instalment.
Squid Game is one of Netflix’s most-watched TV series of all time and so fans are clinging on to any fresh updates about the K-drama.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Dong-hyuk said the show’s main character Gi-hun (Lee Jung-Jae), who of course [spoiler alert] won the game at the end of season one, might have to make a decision between good and evil. 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.
When is Squid Game season 2 out?
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. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything.
Squid Game season one is available to stream on Netflix.
