Despite the squid game being a massive hit on Netflix, season two has yet to be officially released. Season one ends on a bombshell, there’s a strong likelihood that there will be a Squid Game Season 2 release date and so we thought we’d go over the ending of season one.
What it all means, what the second season might potentially look like, and just some general fun theories about some things that you might have missed. We have some great information regarding the Squid Game Season 2 release date.
So let’s take a look and of course, there will be some major squid game spoilers in this article.
Let’s discuss the ending and all the potential theories let’s just go over briefly what happened at the end of the show.
Squid Game Season 2: Ending Explained
Spoiler 1: In the course, our favorite character Seong Gi-Hun ultimately wins after a showdown with Sang Woo and is given the massive cash prize and gets to return home.
However, upon returning home he finds out that his mother died, his daughter has moved to the US and life is still the same.
Instead of spending his money on a fancy sports car or a trip, Gi-Hun leaves it sitting in his account until he gets himself a brand new haircut and then gives half the money to Sang Woo’s mother.
Spoiler 2: Old man friend Oh Il Nam who instead of being a poor dying man is a very rich dying man and the architect behind the games which in hindsight was hinted at pretty heavily to prove a point that people are generally, not very great. Oh Il Nam eventually passes away due to his brain tumor.
Spoiler 3: Gi-Hun gets ready to head to the states to see his daughter but at the airport, he encounters the same mysterious man that inducted him into the Squid Game and realizes that the games are not over and are an unrelenting beast.
Gi-Hun gets ready to get on the plane, he calls up the number and gives them a piece of his mind until the front the man tells him to get on the plane
However, instead of getting on his flight Gi-Hun neglects his daughter for like the millionth time and walks away from the plane suggesting that he is going to try and take down the games potentially from within.
Squid Game Season 2: What Could We Expect From Season 2
Hwang Dong-hyuk may have written season one back in 2008 and then had to wait over 10 years for his pitch to be successful.
He didn’t get around to writing what a season 2 would look like and seemingly doesn’t know himself what will happen in the Squid Game Season 2.
However, seeing as the show is insanely popular right now and on course to be the biggest Netflix show of all time, season 2 is more than likely and Netflix has said that they will work with the show’s creator to flesh it out.
While Hwang Dong-hyuk doesn’t have a clear view of what season 2 will look like. He does have some ideas. He quoted “while I was writing season 1, I thought about the stories that could be in season two. If I get to do one would be the story of the frontman”
The enigmatic character played by lee young-hun, a previous winner of the game would make a lot of sense as there are still a lot of plot threads left unresolved in terms of the frontman and the fact that he killed his brother.
Here’s What We Can Expect From Squid Game Season 2:
Let’s discuss some potential theories for what a second season might look like:
So focusing on the police in their bid to stop the games makes more sense perhaps they will work with Gi-Hun to help stop the games once and for all.
Gi-Hun may enter as a player once again and try to take the games down from within and turn the other players on the frontman and the VIPs or maybe he can pose as a guard and work in the shadows to take them down just like Huang Junho did.
There is a possibility that he survived being shot and his fall and could also continue his work alongside Gi-Hun while the real-life odds of surviving are admittedly pretty thin.
It would help the plot if he were still alive and it would not be the first time the show tricked us into thinking a character was dead when they were alive. Hwang Jun Ho washed up on some island somewhere or was picked up by a fisherman.
Another theory suggests that the show will move away from Korean and Koreans drama and focus on players from other countries.
Talking about the Squid Game Season 2 and its release date, the director quoted ” would say that this is unlikely but we’ll see other theories suggest that season 2 will be a prequel series and either be how the frontman ended up winning the games “
If I had to put a squid game season 2 style wager on it, I’d go with Gi-Hun trying to take the games down from the inside and the potential return of Huang jun ho with Gi-Hun playing the part of a guard.
Seong Gi-Hun Hair Colour Change:
The theory going around the internet is that the color of the card you choose as you’re inducted into the games depends on the role that you’re gonna perform.
Therefore when Gi-Hun dyes his hair red at the end of season 1, he is suggesting that he’s choosing the red card this time and is going to play the part of the guard in the upcoming season.
