The first season of the Squid Game was successful, to say the least. It had a viewership of over 165 million people (across 191 countries) within its first month alone.

Squid Game was Originally Planned for a Movie

Hwang announced to some media houses that he originally planned the show as a movie. However, after Netflix offered him to make it into a series, Hwang was sure to rework his ideas for Season Two of Squid Game.

He told the media about his experience with the first season of Squid Games.

“In my earlier days, I’d drink half a bottle of soju (Korean liquor) to get the creative juices flowing. I can’t do that any more. Writing (‘Squid Game’) was harder than normal for me as it was a series, not a film. It took me six months to write and rewrite the first two episodes. Then I consulted verbally with friends, and picked up clues for improvements through my own pitching and from their responses.”

Hopefully, fans of the show will be able to see Squid Game Season Two!
