Speaking to Deadline Hollywood at its annual Contenders Television event, Hwang revealed Season 1 Key Characters returning for the second season.

Gi-hun for sure. He’ll be back & I believe the Front Man will be back too

So this means we have the main character Lee Jung-jae who will return for another round with the game boss Lee Byung-hun, the Front Man. That means Games cannot begin soon enough.

Even though Hwang Dong-hyuk is not looking at the squid Game Season 2 hitting Netflix before the end of 2024 as he’s ready to return home to record the return of the universal phenomenon, that does not mean it is too early for other news to be made.

Although the return of these characters is expected, this is Hwang’s first public declaration of their return. A few weeks ago, the creator of Squid Game told Deadline about the possible return of HoYeon Jung, who plays the role of North Korean refugees in the series, as her twin sister.

Hwang, who was working on a new project, the Killing Old People Club, noted how the issues of economic inequality would always fit into his work.

Hwang said:

“For this project and in future projects, it’s impossible not to consider the political polarization, the cultural differences, and difficulties, as well as environmental climate changes that have been happening. I will be forced to observe and criticize and continue to handle these topics in future projects,”
