Squid Game is back for another season. Here’s what we know so far

It was by Netflix most-watched series of all time – now squid game is officially back for the second round.

In only 27 days last year, the first season reached a huge 111 million fans according to the streaming service, beating out period drama Bridgerton.

Although we don’t know exactly when the second season of the hit Korean thriller will be released, some plot clues have falled.

Here’s what we know so far.

Wait, I forgot season 1. Remind me?

It’s a in nine parts dark drama telling the story of contestants, who are short of money for various reasons, agreeing to play childish games for a huge sum of money (45.6 billion won or $50 million)

The catch is that these games often have fatal consequences.

Seong Gi-hun is the main character: divorced with a young daughter and a big gambling problem. After winning money from a mysterious businessman in a subway game, he finds himself in the main event.

(And good warning, spoilers below).

The result? Gi-hun survives the violent games and unmasks the old man, Oh Il-namplaying alongside them as a creator, before the old man died.

But in the finale, while Gi-hun is on his way to see his daughter in the United States, he spots the same recruiter on the subway.

The mysterious businessman escapes, but not before Gi-hun retrieves the card and calls the number, asking who runs the game.

So that sets us up for season two.
