"Squid Game" is officially coming back. Netflix announced Sunday that the wildly famous South Korean show is green lit for a second season.
"And now, Gi-hun returns," director, writer and executive producer Hwang Dong-hyuk stated in a letter to fans. "The Front Man returns. Season 2 is coming."
Seong Gi-hun, the main protagonist of "Squid Game," is a divorced gambler who entered the contest for the big money. Hwang also teased new characters and developments in the 2nd season.
"The man in the suit with ddakji might be back," he wrote, referring to the mysterious salesman who recruits desperate players to the game show.
The letter also stated viewers will be introduced to Cheol-su, the "boyfriend" of the show's infamous animatronic doll, Young-hee.
Netflix told CNN in October that "Squid Game" was the "biggest-ever series at launch" for the company.
It is the platform's first-ever Korean series to reach No. 1 in the United States, attracting 1.65 billion hours of viewing in the 28 days following its release.
