Squid Game Season 2 Preview: Release Date, Time, & Where To Watch

Netflix Squid Game Season 2 Preview

If there is one K-drama that changed the game for the genre internationally, it’s the Netflix original, Squid Game. The show was released at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic as most of the world was locked at home. The show received immense global popularity soon after its release and can be considered one of the most popular Korean shows on the platform.

Back in January 2022, it was announced that Squid Game, the global phenomenon written and directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk, would be returning for a second season.

If you’ve been following this violent crime thriller, you may be curious to find out when Season 2 of this K-drama will release.

Well, wonder no more. Here is everything we know about Squid Game Season 2, including its release date, time, cast, and where you can watch it.

What is Squid Game about?

The show follows the life of Seong Gi-hun, a divorced father and indebted gambler who lives with his elderly mother. One day, he is invited to play a series of children’s games for a chance at a large cash prize. Gi-hun accepts the offer and is taken to an unknown location where he finds himself among 455 other players who are all in deep financial trouble.

The players are made to wear green tracksuits and are kept under watch at all times by masked guards in pink jumpsuits as they play games overseen by the Front Man, who wears a black mask and black uniform. The players soon discover that losing these games results in their deaths with each death adding 100 million won to the potential 45.6 billion grand prize. Gi-hun allies with other players, including his childhood friend Cho Sang-woo and North Korean defector Kang Sae-byeok, to try to survive the games’ physical and psychological twists.

Where Can I Watch Squid Game Season 2?

Since Squid Game is a Netflix original, the K-drama will be released exclusively on the streaming platform globally. This is the only place you’ll be able to watch this one.

Squid Game Season 2 Release Date

Since the makers only released the casting information for Season 2, it can be expected Netflix to start filming as early as July 2023. It is also rumoured that the new season of Squid Game will be released in the fourth quarter of next year aka Fall of 2024.
