Netflix has released a brief teaser for the second season of its hit drama series “Squid Game,” along with a message from creator, writer, director and executive producer Hwang Dong-Hyuk dispatching details on which characters are returning for the sophomore outing.
“As the writer, director and producer of ‘Squid Game,’ a huge shout out to fans around the world. Thank you for watching and loving our show.”
Hwang’s statement continues by teasing a bit of the story for the follow-up season, revealing that protagonist Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) and the masked antagonist the Front Man (Lee Byung-hun) will both return.
In the meantime, “Squid Game” has emerged as an awards heavyweight. After scoring a slew of nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, including wins for Lee Jung-jae and HoYeon Jung in their respective gendered categories for outstanding performances in a drama series, Netflix is now in the midst of a FYC campaign during the Emmy season. Nominations will be announced on July 12.
