Millions of rewards, only one gets out alive. Play the game or die, the choice is yours. The series has touched our souls while also crushing them in pieces Squid Game is yet to return. Fandom is starving for more news while we starve for updates. As much as we loved being a fan of Squid Games in 2021, we are the most tortured fandom right now.
With no intentions of adding the sorrow but giving a reality check Squid Game Season 2 is not coming to Netflix in May 2023. While We do have a piece of slightly good news too. However, before we dwell further in the world of our show, let’s continue talking about Netflix’s most-watched series starting from scratch.
If Squid Game Season 2 is not coming to Netflix in June 2023, then when?
One of the most popular series of all time, Squid Game, after claiming to be the top-viewed program in more than 90 countries. The series has attracted millions of audiences. Just like hard work always pays off, Hwang Dong-hyuk never gave up on the series. Must have been hard to be crippled by all the loans and debt while getting rejected by several Korean Production Houses. Squid Game Season 2 is not coming to Netflix in June 2023, but we do know to filming is set to begin.

A few assumptions regarding the second season throw light on the perspective. Let’s first start with the predicted release date since the series is scheduled to begin in the summer. It is believed the series might bless us with its second season at the end of 2023 or in 2024. Netflix is interested in both the second and third season giving it more darker and challenging. The creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk has expressed how he felt after killing off such remarkable characters. He suggested bringing back some dead characters in season 2 with the new cast members. This will be a scene to watch considering the number of characters we want to watch again!
The series executive producer Kim Ji-Yeon has said how much pressure there is regarding the second season script. This could be one of the reasons why Squid Game Season 2 is not coming to Netflix in June 2023. Since the first season does have some loose ends to tie, Hwang has announced the return of Gi-hun. We don’t know if he’ll return as the player or in another form since he’s rich now. All we know he’s coming back for revenge while his character is themed to be darker than the previous one.
The Front Man, Lee Byung-hun, and his brother Jun-ho story are still left untouched since we saw the brothers fight. We know how The Front Man shot his brother, but we never really saw the dead body of Jun-ho. It can be assumed that Hwang was referring to Jun-ho when he said the return of some beloved characters. We know the original budget of the series was $21.4 million & we do know, the show is thinking of increasing that for the second season, given all the hype for the show. The second installment is meant to have more budget after being ranked the number one series.
