The show's creator has now teased possible storylines that a season two could delve into, which has got us even more hopeful more seasons will be commissioned.

"I’ll just say there are a lot of possibilities out there for season 2 storylines."

Before you get too excited, though, Dong-hyuk did previously state that he has no current plans for more episodes, telling Variety: "I don’t have well developed plans for Squid Game 2.

"It is quite tiring just thinking about it. But if I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone. I’d consider using a writers’ room and would want multiple experienced directors."
