Squid Game Series 2 start date – when will it return?

Unfortunately, there is no good news for Squid Game fans who are hoping for a Series 2 soon.

Actor Lee Jung-jae has given a disappointing update on the progress of the upcoming series.

Lee, who plays anti-hero Seong Gi-hun, explained that creator and writer Hwang Dong-hyuk is “struggling” to write series 2.

In an interview with People, Lee said that Hwang hasn’t written the script yet because he has so many ideas!

Lee told the magazine: “[It] it looks like he has a lot of different ideas.

“But write a [script] is something you don’t know when it goes [be finished].

“Only Director Hwang knows and [it] it looks like he’s really having a hard time writing the script.

So if it’s not written yet, Series 2 will NOT start in 2022.

Hopefully, Hwang Dong-hyuk will complete the script this year, and the cast and crew can begin filming in 2023.

Crossed fingers!

Will there be more Squid Game series after series 2?

Netflix has not confirmed if there will be more Squid Game series after series 2.

But we are hopeful.

If creator and writer Hwang Dong-hyuk has so many great ideas, surely there’s mileage to keep the series running and running!?

The small-screen.co.uk website reported that “Squid Game seasons 2 and 3 are already in the works”.

An insider told them that Squid Game Season 3 is already in the works on the streaming platform.

They said, “Squid Game season 2 is in active development and Netflix has already given the green light for a third season.

“There is also talk of a Squid Game spin-off movie.

“This comes after Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk told KBS (Korean Broadcasting System) that he was in talks with Netflix about Season 2 as well as Season 3.”
