Anyone who has watched Netflix’s hit series ‘Squid Game’ knows that you can’t help but binge the episodes that keep your on the edge of your seat, biting your nails, and agonizing over the choices the characters are faced with. The series quickly smashed Netflix’s record for the most watched show of all time, gaining over 130 million viewers in less than a month. It's no surprise then that a second season is on its way. Creator Hwang Dong-hyuk previously confirmed that he had a storyline for season two already formed, but the only spoiler he gave was “that Gi-hun is going to be back, and he will do something for the world.”
Now Netflix has shared exclusive new details for the second season on June 17 as part of its Tudum Global Fan Event in Brazil. The new teaser announced both returning and new cast members, with series lead Lee Jung-jae, playing Gi-hun, back for a second round. Also returning will be the masked character of “Front Man,” played by Lee Byung-hun, and Wi Ha-jun, who plays the cop in search of his missing brother, CNN reports. New cast members include Yim Si-wan, Kang Ha-neul, Park Sung-hoon, and Yang Dong-geun.
