The second season of squid game will be made. Squid game will have its second season

Digital Desk, Seoul. Season 2 of the popular Korean survival drama Squid Game will be made. Co-CEO and Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos has confirmed. In Netflix’s fourth-quarter 2021 earnings interview, Sarandos was asked whether there would be a second season of the violent South Korean survival drama, which ranked as the company’s No. 1 most-watched TV series, reports Variety.com. has scored.

Sarandos replied, absolutely. The Squid game universe has just begun. That said, Squid placed the game in line with Netflix’s growing bouquet of entertainment franchises that the company sees as growth potential outside the core streaming service, with live experiences, games, and merchandise.

Sarandos took on Bridgeton, the second most-watched Netflix original TV show, with season 2 coming out in March, and Stranger Things, with season 4 slated for this summer. Previously, Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk hinted that the hit series would return for Season 2.

The Squid Game is Netflix’s biggest TV show ever in the long run, based on streamers’ calculations that subscribers around the world streamed 1.65 billion hours of the show in the first 28 days of its release on the platform.

In Season 1, 456 cash-strapped contestants are invited by a mysterious organization to compete in a series of children’s games with deadly results.

Netflix paid $21.4 million for the first season of Squid Game and estimates the series will deliver $891 million in impact value, according to confidential internal data leaked to Bloomberg.
