Netflix shares Squid Game series 2 first look

Fans of the rollercoaster ride that was Squid Games have got a sneak peak at what is to come in season two

Netflix has teased many of its upcoming 2024 releases, including the hotly anticipated Squid Game season two.

The streaming service has given fans just a few lines of dialogue and a look at the show's lead Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) in his quest for revenge.

The first season of the show saw 456 contestants who were struggling financially compete against each other in a series of children's games for a prize of 45.6 billion won (roughly $34.2 million).

However, the contest came with a deadly twist. If you lose, you die, leaving no room for error.

Upon its release on Netflix in 2021, Squid Game was a massive global success, racking up more 1.65 billion viewing hours in the first 28 days on the platform, making it the most-watched show in the streamer's history.

The show's director, Hwang Dong-hyuk, previously spoke to Associated Press about the unbelievable reception that season one received.

He said: "So, there's been so much pressure, so much demand, and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice.

"But, I will say there will indeed be a second season. It's in my head right now. I'm in the planning process currently. But I do think it's too early to say when and how that's going to happen."

Now, a first look for the show's second season has finally been released and sees Seong Gi-Hun gunning up to get revenge on the Squid Game frontman who oversaw the games.

As he walks through an airport, he says on the phone: "You'll regret your decision.

"I will find you. No matter what it takes."

Netflix has released a teaser for season two of Squid Game.

The teaser may be brief, but fans of the South Korean series couldn't be more excited.

One X user wrote: "I can't wait!"

Another commented: "I’m here for Squid Game."

While a third added: "Squid Game is gonna be wild."

While season two's release date hasn't been confirmed, Netflix teased it will be 'coming this year'.

This comes after Netflix's announcement in December that it's casting a new bunch of contestants for season two of Squid Game: The Challenge.

The reality series recreates the outfits, sets and games from the original series, although you don't actually die if you're eliminated.

With a prize pot of $4.56 million up for grabs for the last player standing, it's still a pretty high-stakes competition, with popular contestants from the first season breaking down under the pressure.
