Squid Game Season 2: Story

The second season of Squid Game picks up a few years after the first season-ending. Hwang Dong-hyuk, who made the show, has hinted that the new season will look into where the games came from and how they came to be.

The story is about a new group of people who are forced to play dangerous games. One of them is a police officer named Hwang Jun-ho, who is looking into how his brother got lost. He learns that his brother used to play the games and that there is more to them than meets the eye as he digs deeper into the story.

As the games go on, alliances are made and broken, and participants are taken out one by one. Now more than ever, the players have to use all of their smarts and strategy to stay alive.

There isn’t an exact date yet for when Squid Game Season 2 will be out. Netflix has said, though, that filming will start later this year. We’ll just have to be patient until we hear more about what’s coming up.
