Squid Game became a global phenomenon upon its release last year. The series revolved around a competition, the titular Squid Game, which lures in common people who are in debt and promises them a huge cash prize upon winning a set of children’s games that are well known in South Korea. But the consequences of losing are deadly — literally.
A release date for Squid Game Season 2 has not been announced yet.
