Squid Game Season 2 Is Eyeing a 2023-2024 Release

Squid Game may have been the 'it' show of 2021, but don't go thinking the series has lost any of its charm. The original series is the biggest at Netflix, and work is already going down on season two behind the scenes. And thanks to a new report, fans know Squid Game's new episodes won't be ready until next year at the earliest.

The update on Squid Game comes from Hwang himself as the creator spoke with Vanity Fair about their show's whirlwind success. It was there the creator admitted the soonest any of season two would done in late 2023. So if new episodes don't go live until 2024, don't be surprised.

"Humanity is going to be put to a test through those games once again," Hwang told the magazine when asked about Squid Game's next season. "I want to ask the question, 'Is true solidarity between humans possible?'"

Vanity Fair also included a realtime update on season two in its report on Hwang. According to the magazine, the creator has three pages of ideas he's ready to turn into a script for season two. This means the creator has few if any specifics to share on season two, but at the very least, he did tell Vanity Fair more games would be included when the series makes its comeback.
