In this image, Gi-hun stands behind one of the masked guards. You can also notice his original hair color. This could mean he is dreaming or experiencing a flashback, or perhaps he dyed his once-red hair back to its original black hue.

What Will Happen in Squid Game Season 2?

In Season 2, we will see Seong Gi-hun‘s (Lee Jung-jae) aftermath of ditching the plane to the United States to stay in South Korea to finish what the Recruiter had started.

In Season 1, Squid Games welcomed a group of contestants to a deadly game, giving them a chance to receive a 45.6 billion cash prize if they win. The final contestant, Gi-hun, was awarded the promised prize. But this was not the end; after the death of the game’s creator, the game was still going on with the new recruits.

Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk said, “I’ve seen many reactions from people about the show, but I don’t want to make season two a response to those reactions. The philosophies I put in season one all naturally extend to season two. Instead of trying to meet the expectations of viewers, I just thought about the last moment when Gi-hun turned away from boarding the plane, and I thought about what he will do next.”

He continued, “There will naturally be a flow of events that will lead to the end of the season. I can’t share any details yet, but you know that Seong Gi-hun has become a totally new person by the end of season one, so season two is going to be about what that new Gi-hun is going to do and how things will unfold with this new kind of character.”

More About the Upcoming Season

Netflix released a video offering a sneak peek at the upcoming seasons and movies. The footage shows Gi-hun in a striking new hair color. He is seen engaged in a tense phone conversation where the caller warns him, ‘You’ll regret your decision.’ To which Gi-hun, far from faltering, retorts, ‘I will find you. No matter what it takes.’ Check out the clip in this video:

So, prepare yourself for the subsequent round of chaos of Squid Game. Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos believes the next season will ‘blow your minds.’ He stated, “We are really excited about director Hwang’s ability for storytelling, more dynamic sets, and more mind-blowing storylines that are going to thrill the entire world. Hwang’s vision is such a powerful example of how Korean — and non-English titles – can be locally authentic while finding new international audiences on Netflix.”
