Netflix has shared a previously unreleased clip of Squid Game Season one at its TUDUM Preview Event today (September 24).
The streaming platform is previewing some of its upcoming programs around the world, starting with a section dedicated to its Korean list.
At the end of the Korean segment Squid Game Director Hwang Dong-hyuk appeared in a video message. “I want to thank all Netflix fans around the world once again for their love Squid Game,” he said. “Please look forward to season two, which will be full of brand new stories.
But in the meantime, I have prepared a small present for the waiting fans Squid Game season two. Let’s take a look.”
A clip then showed a man carrying goldfish in a bag of water following him down a corridor and into a room. After pouring the fish into a goldfish bowl, the person’s face stared at them, reportedly revealing the mystery frontman’s identity. Outside the building, another figure watched the window intently. Now watch the clip above.
According to a recent report, Hwang will reportedly introduce new game mechanics in the second season of the hit series. South Korean News Agency Moonhwa Ilbo reported earlier this month (September 14) that a new mechanism will be implemented called Cheol-su, who is said to be the “friend” of Young-hee, the legendary giant doll used in the Red Light Green Light game first Season.
Filming for the new episodes is also slated to begin in 2023, with a rumored release for late 2024. New characters will be introduced to the show, while Kang Sae-byeok (played by Jung Ho-yeon) and Hwang Jun-ho (Wi Ha-jun ) might return, although he was killed in the first season.
On 09/12 Squid Game Star Lee Jung-jae, who plays Seong Gi-hoon, made history at the 2022 Emmy Awards. He took home the award for Outstanding Lead Actor for his role, which is the first time an Asian actor has done so. Hwang, meanwhile, bagged the award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series Squid Game the first non-English language drama to win an award in this category.
In a four-star review of the first season NME said: “The series’ harsh social criticism, exciting competition and likable characters remain compelling throughout […] Squid Games The pastel perversion of teenage nostalgia is more than enough to keep us invested and hopeful for a possible second season.”
