Squid Game was THE Netflix sensation of 2021 and fans were ecstatic when a Series 2 was confirmed – but when is the launch date?
Most TV viewers consumed the series within days of its release on the streaming service in September this year.
In fact, Squid Game Halloween costumes have been all the rage this season.
But it’s been nearly a year since viewers first saw the violent thriller.
So when is the Squid Game Series 2 start date on Netflix?
Here’s everything you need to know!

Squid Game Series 2 launch date – when will it return?
Unfortunately, there’s no good news for Squid Game fans hoping for a Series 2 in the near future.
Actor Lee Jung-jae has given a disappointing update on the progress of the next series.
Lee, who plays anti-hero Seong Gi-hun, has stated that creator and writer Hwang Dong-hyuk is “struggling” to write the second series.
In an interview with People, Lee said Hwang hasn’t written the script yet because he has so many ideas!
Lee told the magazine: “[It] Looks like he has a lot of different ideas.
“But write a [script] is something you don’t know when it’s going to happen [be finished].
“Only director Hwang knows and [it] feels like he’s really struggling to write the script.”
So if it’s not written yet, Series 2 will NOT launch in 2022.
With any luck, Hwang Dong-hyuk will finish the script this year, and the cast and crew can start filming in 2023.
