We learned last week that Netflix were bringing back the worldwide hit Squid Game for a second series (here) and now we have some more fun details on the show’s return.

On the show’s return, writer and director Hwang Dong-hyuk says: “It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year. But it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever.”

The original series saw down on his luck and in severe debt Gi-Hun sign up for what he thinks is a simple game to win himself some money but turns out to be much, much more deadly – if you haven’t seen it, you really should, it’s worth the hype!

Executive producer of the Korean show Kim Ji-yeon says: “We are working on the script right now and making the form of the story.

“But there’s definitely a lot of pressure on how to make [Season 2] even better. I know that a lot of the different fans and audiences have enjoyed the series very much, but really we’re focusing on how to make it even more joyful to the global audience.”

Watch the new teaser here:

No word on when Squid Game returns yet but whenever it is, it’ll find me waiting, remote in hand, to get right back into the action.

Thoughts? I want to hear them all…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
