NETFLIX has announced that its record-breaking series Squid Game will indeed be returning for a second season.
The South Korean thriller series enjoyed international success following its release in 2021, and its director Hwang Dong-hyuk has now confirmed fans can look forward to more.
The creator has also revealed exactly what lies in store for the Netflix series when it finally returns for season two.
Fans have been kept waiting for months regarding the future of the show, but Netflix has teased its return all across its social media channels.
Taking to Twitter, Netflix shared a video of the terrifying giant doll figure from the 'Red Light, Green Light' game.
They wrote alongside it: "Greenlight! Squid Game continues, only on Netflix."
In only 24 hours the post has attracted thousands of likes, retweets and replies from fans.
However, the reaction seems to be split.
Some are over the moon that the show is returning: "BUZZING MATE".
Another wrote: "LET'S GOO!!! 🔥"
The praise continued: "This definitely needs a Season 2. The cliffhanger at the end, the theories and all the present symbolism in the story.
"This is one of the best series on netflix. No wonder, why it gain recognition worldwide."
However, many seemed sceptical about a second season, questioning the need for it.
One responded to Netflix: "probably going to be boring though, it’s a 1 season thing".
Many agreed: "What’s the problem with leaving a good, original series as it is", "who asked for this".
The post on Netflix's Twitter was accompanied by a quote from the series creator.
