“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,” he said. “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.”
In addition to confirming the second season, Dong-hyuk also said that Seong Gi-hun, the protagonist in season one played by Lee Jung-jae, will return in the second season. “I will promise you this, Gi-hun will come back, and he’ll do something for the world,” he said.
Dong-hyuk previously spoke with The Guardian about the potential for a second season, stating that he has plans to create an entirely different film as well. “Of course there is talk,” he told the outlet. “That’s inevitable because it’s been such a success. I am considering it. I have a very high-level picture in my mind, but I’m not going to work on it straight away. There’s a film I really want to make. I’m thinking about which to do first. I’m going to talk to Netflix.”
