The creator of Squid Game, Hwang Dong-hyuk, hints at the new plots to expect in the long-anticipated season 2 of the Korean TV series.
In an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the creator revealed that the sequel will be a natural evolution of where the story left off in season one.
“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,” he stated.
Contrary to the expectations of Squid Game viewers, he emphasized, “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.”
