The director of Netflix’s huge hit series “Squid Game” admitted dilemma over whether and how to revive dead characters as he prepared for a second season after making history at the Emmys last week.
“Squid Game” became Netflix Inc’s most-watched series ever after its release last September, creating countless online memes and Halloween costumes and kickstarting sales of green tracksuits.
Director-writer Hwang Dong-hyuk won an Emmy for outstanding directing for a drama series, while lead actor Lee Jung-jae clinched the honour for best actor in drama. Both were the first Asians to garner those titles and the first from a non-English series.
Hwang said he had already devised games to be played in the second season and was writing a script, but was in a dilemma over dead characters such as Ji-young and Sae-byeok.
The new season will be shot next year and released in 2024.
