Netflix has officially confirmed that the massively popular show Squid Game will be returning for a second season.

Squid Game took the world by storm in late 2021, becoming the most popular show to ever air on Netflix just 12 days after its release, completely out of nowhere. The wildly popular Korean drama became a global phenomenon, going viral across social media.

The Netflix show took a lot of viewers back to their childhood, reminding them of games they used to play as 456 contestants battled it out playing children’s games, but with a deadly twist if they fail – a massive contributor to Squid Game’s success
