- The first images of ‘Squid Game’ Season 2 are online.
- Star Lee Jung-jae will be back with a mix of returning and new cast.
- Netflix released a trailer for its new and returning shows for 2024.
The wait for a new season of ‘Squid Game’ has been almost as torturous as some of the twists in the first run, all the way back in 2021.
‘Squid Game’ become Netflix’s most-watched show, with the company estimating that subscribers worldwide streamed 1.65 billion hours of the show in the first 28 days of its release. It inspired many Halloween costumes based on the contestants’ numbered green tracksuits and the orange jumpsuit/face mask combination sported by guards on the show.
And while last year’s reality show ‘Squid Game: The Challenge’ may have tried to tide us all over, it was far from the real thing. The good news for fans, then, is that it’ll be back for a second season this year, with pictures to prove it.
