456 participants from all walks of life are locked into a secret location where they play games in order to win 45.6 billion won ($28million).

Whoever is the last one standing takes home the cash money prize.

Will there be a season 2 of Squid Game?

Although the response to Squid Game has been very positive, a second season has not been ordered yet.

The show’s creator Hwang Dong-hyuk told Variety he was pleased with the show’s success and is not looking to continue as the creation was a “long and stressful process.”

He revealed he’s not the best team player but he is looking to “change his ways.”

Based on the length of production for season 1 being two years, season 2 would likely arrive in 2023 or later.
