Hwang Dong-Hyuk, who is the creator and writer of the series, shared a special message with fans about what they can expect in the new season.

As the writer, director and producer of ‘Squid Game,’ a huge shout out to fans around the world. Thank you for watching and loving our show," he wrote. 

Lee Jung-jae returns as Seong Gi-hun - a divorced gambler struggling to support his daughter. The Front Man - a masked character who oversees the games - is back as well.

Hwang hinted that Young-hee's "boyfriend" will make an appearance in the new season. He revealed that "the man in the suit with ddakji might be back". 

There's still no word on when season 2 will be released, but production is said to be in the early stages. According to Variety, season 2 could premier in late 2023 or early 2024.
