On Sunday, Netflix dropped a very short teaser for season 2, featuring animation of the animatronic doll that figured heavily in the show’s maiden season. “Red light… GREENLIGHT!” the caption read, with the doll’s one eye flashing the number two.
Along with the teaser, Hwang Dong-hyuk, the show’s writer, director, and executive producer, penned a brief letter ringing in the occasion. “It took 12 years to bring the first season of ‘Squid Game’ to life last year. But it took 12 days for ‘Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever,” Hwang wrote. He thanks the fans and teased what lay in store:
And now, Gi-hun returns.
The Front Man returns.
Season 2 is coming.
The man in the suit with ddakji might be back.
