Squid Game‘s director Hwang Dong-hyuk has confirmed in a recent interview that he had purposely planted clues in the first season just in case the second season would be given the green light by Netflix.

In an interview with IndieWire that initially, he did not expect the series to become such a global phenomenon. He said that while writing the first series, he intended to leave hints and clues throughout the first story in season one. Hwang said it was just “for myself and also the audience. Just in case there is another season, these things could be loose knots. I only currently have a broad storyline. I’m in the process of structuring the story and the new games, and wanting to crystallize them into more detailed ideas.”

The second season of Squid Game was initially confirmed earlier this year and is set to arrive by the end of 2023 or 2024. Hwang is reportedly in the middle of finalizing his ideas for the second season, but there is no official release date announced just yet.
