Squid Game Creator Hwang Dong Hyuk Confirms the Return of First Man and Player 456 in Season 2 – What Could the Plot Look Like?

After its groundbreaking release last year, fans couldn’t be more excited about the release of Squid Game season 2. The show left the viewers on a cliffhanger with many unanswered questions and unexplored plot lines. While the last scene of the Netflix Original assured fans that Gi-Hun is going to be back, there are numerous other characters who fans wish to explore more of.

How did Squid Game end?

It was the September of 2021 that saw Squid Game taking over the entertainment world. Hence, it is safe to say that it has been quite a minute since this Netflix Original first appeared on our screens. Many fans would have forgotten exactly how the season ended, so here’s your quick run-down of the same:

After the infamous Glass Stepping Stones game, we had three very predictable finalists. They were Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), Kang Sae-byeok (Jung Ho-yeon), and Cho Sang-woo (Park Hae-soo). As much as fans wanted her to survive, Sae-byeok ended up in the fancy coffin.

The title of the winner and the 456 billion won were lying between Gi-hun and Sang-woo now. As expected, Gi-hun wins and takes the money home. He’s miserable at first but eventually gets himself together. While he seems to be living a happy life after some time, he runs into the man who beat him at the slap game, yet again. While Gi-hun doesn’t catch hold of the man, he finds his way to the games again. However, this time around, he isn’t there to win. He is determined to destroy them.

What will we see in Squid Game season 2?

Fans of the Netflix series are filled with suspense to the brim as they await the release of Squid Game season 2. Not only did the series leave them at a cliffhanger, but they also had many other questions that seemed to be left untouched. An essential one among these was the backstory of the Front Man.

While his younger brother was a vigilant and dedicated cop, the older was running a game that killed hundreds solely for entertainment. How did the two end up in such drastically different positions?

Considering the policeman, Hwang Jun-ho’s popularity, director Hwang Dong-hyuk was more inclined than ever to ensure he delves into this plotline in season 2. Hence, he confirmed that both Gi-hun and the Front Man will be back in Squid Game season 2.

As for Gi-hun, fans will know how this single man with very limited resources plans to take down an organization whose power seems limitless. Will he find success? Or, will the show continue with another lead, leaving fans with a harsh but realistic ending?
