“Squid Game,” Netflix’s breakout hit of 2021, will be renewed for a second season, according to co-CEO and chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

Sarandos was questioned whether the violent South Korean survival drama, which has scored as the company’s No. 1 most-viewed TV series, would get a second season at Netflix’s fourth quarter 2021 earnings interview.

Sarandos said, “Absolutely.” “The ‘Squid Game’ universe is only getting started.”

He categorised “Squid Game” as part of Netflix’s increasing bouquet of entertainment properties including live experiences, games, and merchandise that the firm sees as having development potential outside of the core streaming service.

“Bridgerton,” the second most-watched Netflix original TV programme, will premiere Season 2 in March, while “Stranger Things,” Season 4 will premiere this summer, according to Sarandos.

Hwang Dong-hyuk, the creator of “Squid Game,” had previously stated that the hit series would be renewed for a second season.

“There has been a lot of pressure, a lot of demand, and a lot of love for a second season.” So it’s almost as if you don’t give us a choice!” Last November, Hwang told the Associated Press. “However, I can confirm that there will be a second season.” I’m thinking about that right now. “Right now, I’m working on a plan.”

Lee Jung-jae, who plays Seong Gi-hun in “Squid Game,” will also return, according to Hwang.

“Squid Game” is by far Netflix’s most popular TV show, with 1.65 billion hours of content consumed in the first 28 days of its release, according to the streaming service’s calculations.

In Season 1, a secret organisation invites 456 cash-strapped competitors to participate in a series of children’s games – with fatal consequences — for a share of the $45.6 billion prize pool (about $38.5 million).

The series created history by becoming the first non-English-language series and the first Korean series to be nominated for cast in a drama series, actor in a drama series (Lee Jung-jae), actress in a drama series (Jung Ho-yeon), and stunt ensemble at the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

In addition, “Squid Game” took home three Golden Globe Awards, including best TV drama and a supporting actor award for O Yeong-su. The show was also nominated for three Critics’ Choice Awards and won the Gotham Award for Best Breakthrough Series.

According to confidential corporate data released to Bloomberg, Netflix spent $21.4 million for the first season of “Squid Game” and estimates the series will generate $891 million in “impact value.”

Netflix had 221.8 million customers worldwide as of the end of 2021. However, when the company forecasted slower-than-expected Q1 subscriber growth and conceded that rivals may be affecting user acquisition, shares of the paid-streaming leader plummeted on Thursday.
