In November, it was Hwang himself who confirmed that he had agreed with Netflix on a second season (we reported). He also said that the main character Seong Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae )’s fight against the “Squid Game“Organizers will be at the center. One of the reasons why the official order for this is still a long time coming could be because the platform wants to put together a double pack.

In just 28 days of its release, Squid Game was streamed nearly 142 million times, according to Netflix information. Bridgerton’s previous record was “only“82 million streams in the first month, although the streamer had even fewer subscribers at the time.
