Netflix Announces Return of Hit Series ‘Squid Game’ for a Second Season

Netflix gears up for a thrilling 2024 with the return of ‘Squid Game’ Season 2 and a robust lineup of new and returning shows.

In an unexpected announcement that’s sure to excite fans, Netflix has confirmed the return of ‘Squid Game’ for its second season, which is poised to hit screens later this year. The revelation came through a shareholder letter, as reported by Variety, indicating a promising array of content for 2024, despite previous setbacks due to industry strikes.

Netflix’s roster is stacked with a mixture of returning hits and fresh content. Viewers can look forward to the next installments of beloved dramas such as ‘The Diplomat’ and ‘Bridgerton,’ along with the continuation of reality series like ‘Love is Blind.’ The platform is also introducing new series like ‘3 Body Problem,’ with the creative minds behind ‘Game of Thrones’ at the helm.

Adding to the anticipation are premieres of other series including ‘Griselda,’ featuring Sofia Vergara, Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Gentlemen,’ ‘Eric’ with Benedict Cumberbatch, and adaptations like ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and ‘Cien Años de Soledad,’ the latter based on the iconic novel by Gabriel García Márquez.

‘Squid Game’ first captivated global audiences in 2021, rapidly ascending to the pinnacle of Netflix’s most-watched shows. The first season concluded with a dramatic cliffhanger, leaving viewers eager for the story’s continuation. Without divulging details, series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk hinted in 2022 at the introduction of even more enthralling games in the upcoming season.
