Netflix is giving a first look at Season 2 of Squid Game, with new photos and a bit of footage.  The streaming service posted on X: “Introducing the very first look at SQUID GAME SEASON 2. Coming this year.” Season 1 of Squid Game still ranks as the most watched series in Netflix history.

The colorful photos from the new season are mainly centered on protagonist Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) and the Recruiter (Gong Yoo), as well as a new character played by Park Gyu-young. There’s also a short amount of footage, picking-up right after the closing shot of the first Squid Game season.

Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk previously said of Season 2: “I’ve seen many reactions from people about the show, but I don’t want to make season two as a response to those reactions. The philosophies I put in season one all naturally extend to season two. Instead of trying to meet the expectations of viewers, I just thought about the last moment when Gi-hun turned away from boarding the plane, and I thought about what he will do next. There will naturally be a flow of events that will lead all the way to the end of the season. I can’t share any details yet, but you know that Seong Gi-hun has become a totally new person by the end of season one, so season two is going to be about what that new Gi-hun is going to do and how things will unfold with this new kind of character.”

Season 2 of Squid Game does not yet have a premiere date. It’s game show spinoff, The Challenge, has also been renewed for another season.
