Squid Game is a survival drama set in Seoul, where hundreds of financially strapped contestants signed away their life rights to play children’s games for a chance at winning a $38 million grand prize. But lose any round and be prepared for a grisly death.
It’s the first time Dong-hyuk has talked about the possibility of a third season. The creator previously told Deadline that he had begun the creative process for the follow-up after the Korean dystopian drama series quickly reached No. 1 in 90 countries within the first two weeks. Netflix’s most-watched series ever with more than 142M households watching.
The record-breaking series is most notable for its popularity and its talent, which helped garner the Korean-language show awards and nominations in the United States including Golden Globe noms for Best Television Series, best performance by an actor – drama (Lee Jung-jae), and best performance by an actor in a supporting role on television (Oh Yeong-su).
