Let’s have some chat on Squid Game Season 2 release date and what to expect from the beloved Netflix series’ upcoming season. It’s been only a few days since Squid Game hit the streaming platform and it has already gained remarkable popularity among the audience. As a Netflix original series, the show has all the components of a typical Netflix production and more. So, it is not very surprising to see that the devoted audience of the platform is already fond of the project.
Will There Be Squid Game Season 2?
On Sept.17, 2021, Netflix released the first season of Squid Game, consisting of 9 episodes. Even though the show is still waiting for an official announcement of a 2nd season, based on the impact it created only in a few days, we can confidently estimate that there will be a Squid Game season 2, with even more excitement. However, for an official confirmation, we may have to wait a little longer since Netflix tends to linger a couple of months after the release of every season to announce a new one.
In the meantime, the streaming platform observes the show’s success, based on its ratings and audience reviews while calculating the cost and benefits of having yet another season. Nevertheless, we know that Netflix loves Korean dramas – such as Sweet Home and Kingdom. In fact, the platform allocated a large pie of its 2021 budget only to these Korean dramas since they are proved to be worth investing in. The platform’s audience also enjoys these productions a lot, suggesting that Squid Game has a high possibility of being renewed.
Squid Game Season 2 Release Date
If there will be a Season 2 of the show, its production process will possibly start in late 2021 and continue in early 2022. The filming of season 2 will also probably take place in early 2022. The eventual release date of Squid Game Season 2 might be scheduled at sometime around Fall 2022. However, we also have to take into account the fact that the Korean series takes a little longer to be released than the typical Netflix productions. We are not sure why but this is how it is.
Thus, we might get to see Squid Game Season 2 later than expected. This means that even though our optimistic opinion on the issue insists on Fall 2022, realistically, season 2 of Squid Game will probably be released in early 2023.
Squid Game Season 2 Trailer
Well, that’s a long time, for sure. This also means that we will get to see the trailer of Squid game season 2 around mid-August 2022. Although there is probably more than a year to have a follow-up to this story, based on its 1st season, we can ensure you that Squid Game is worth waiting.
What is Squid Game About?
As a game, Squid Game is not like the others as the stakes are way higher than expected. In fact, whenever you make a mistake or have an error, you are facing fatal consequences, which makes the game more than a basic fun activity. It focuses on 456 people who are heavily in debt and would do anything to earn $39 Million. However, there is no losing and moving on your life with heavy debts. You either win the game or get killed. Besides, there can only be one winner, which means that the rivalry among the participants is beyond this world.
