Initially, Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk seemed a little hesitant to make more Squid game. But if your series is the biggest show ever on the platform, you might want to rethink that. Hwang did and has since warmed up to the idea. He now has some more details on what to expect in the next season of the hit Netflix show.

Below are spoilers for the end of the first season, so be careful.

Season one ended with Seong Gi-hun, played by Lee Jung-jae, standing queuing to board a plane to see his daughter, but then… turn around. Which, evidently, isn’t the last we’ll see of the character. In an interview, Hwang confirmed that there will be a second season with Gi-hun returns.

“It’s in my head now,” Hwang . told me AP, adding that he was currently in the planning process. “But I think it’s too early to say when and how that will happen.”

“So I’ll promise you this… Gi-hun will be back. He will do something for the world.”

What exactly? We do not know. On the other hand, we don’t really know much about the upcoming season. In October, Hwang said: The times that the police angle was something he might be interested in in season two. This would breathe new life into the police subplot that was extinguished.

In the same AP interview Hwang told that a second season has become inevitable. “So there’s so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season,” he said. “So I almost feel like you’re leaving us no choice!” It was only a few months ago in September that Hwang said he had no firm plans for… Squid Game season 2, tell Variety“It’s exhausting just thinking about it.”

As attractive as Gi-hun and actor Lee Jung-jae are, the end of season one left some viewers cold, including LeBron James, who summed up the feeling of many when he said“Like, get on the damn flight and go to your daughter, bro. Like, what are you doing?”

There are many ways the character can be treated in Season 2, including through flashbacks. But since Hwang says Gi-hun will “do something for the world,” that doesn’t seem likely. But will he do anything for his daughter?
