In this upcoming season, Lee Jung-jae’s character, Seong Gi-hun, will reportedly abandon his plans to go to the U.S. and instead embark on a mission driven by a new motive. Fans can also look forward to the return of Lee Byung-hun as Hwang In-ho (Front Man), Wi Ha-joon as Officer Hwang Jun-ho, and Gong Yoo as the enigmatic Salesman.

The first season of ‘Squid Game’ premiered on Netflix in 2021, created by Hwang Dong-hyuk. It depicts a deadly contest where 456 players risk their lives playing twisted versions of children’s games for a massive cash prize. The series was an immediate success, racking up over 1.65 billion viewing hours in its first four weeks, making it Netflix’s most-watched show ever. It has also garnered critical acclaim and several major award nominations, including an Emmy win for Lee Jung-jae.
