Back in 2021 when we were all stuck at home because of the pandemic, Squid Game became a Netflix phenomenon. Maybe it’s because we were all hating life at the time, but we fell in love with watching people die in a twisted game show for money. Well, in 2024 Squid Game is coming back for season two, and it promises to raise the stakes.
The first images of Squid Game‘s second season have arrived, and in them we see Emmy-winning star Lee Jung-jae who returns as Seong Gi-hung. Looks like surviving the first games, and his subsequent trip to the U.S. to be with his daughter didn’t turn out so well. It looks as if he’ll be dragged back into the games once again to fight for his life.
Also coming back are Lee Byung-hun as Front Man and Gong Yoo as the Recruiter. New to the cast is popular South Korean actress Park Gyu-young. They’re joined by an extensive ensemble that includes Yim Si-wan, Kang Ha-neul, Wi Ha-jun, Lee Jin-uk, Park Sung-hoon, Yang Dong-geun, Kang Ae-sim, Lee David, Choi Seung-hyun, Roh Jae-won, Jo Yuri, Won Ji-an.
It’s safe to say that Netflix has high hopes for Squid Game‘s return. But circumstances that made it such a hit three years ago have changed. Will it continue to be one of the streamer’s biggest shows ever?
