Speculation is higher than ever after a second season of Squid Game was officially confirmed recently, and now star Lee Jung-jae has given a taste of what fans can expect.

The actor, known for playing main character Seong Gi-hun in the hugely popular Netflix series, spoke about what he knows about the upcoming episodes.

The Korean drama follows 456 players in deep financial debt, competing in a number of children’s games to win a grand cash prize, and took the world by storm earlier this year.

While he didn’t reveal much about season two, Lee does know one thing.

‘I have no idea what will happen or the scale of it, but the only thing [Hwang] did tell me was that Seong Gi-hun is going to be in the show again, and he’s going to be playing in the arena again,’ he told People.

He also said he hoped the second instalment would be just as unpredictable as the initial season.

‘I hope there’s some sort of twist that’ll be exciting and surprising for me and the viewers. If it was predictable, it would be no fun,’ the actor added.

Meanwhile, show creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has revealed he is already planning ahead for a third season.

The 50-year-old film director has teased fans over a possible third chapter in the fictional story.

Speaking to Korean broadcaster KBS, he said: ‘I’m in talks with Netflix over season 2 as well as season 3. We will come to a conclusion any time soon.’

Dong-hyuk recently assured fans last month that a second season is definitely in the works after viewers had so many questions over the huge cliffhanger at the end of episode nine, titled One Lucky Day.

Speaking to the Associated Press, he said: ‘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! But I will say, there will indeed be a second season.’

In October, the nine-part thriller was branded Netflix’s ‘biggest show’ after being watched by a ‘mind-boggling’ 142 million households around the world.

Squid Game is available to stream on Netflix.
