As previously confirmed, Season 1 protagonist Seong Gi-hun (Emmy winner Lee Jung-jae) is back alongside the overseer of the game Front Man (Lee Byung-hun). Undercover cop Hwang Jun-ho (Wi Ha-joon) and the unnamed mystery man (Gong Yoo) who recruited Gi-hun into the game have also returned for the second installment.
In a teaser video, Netflix revealed four new cast members for the second season: Yim Si-Wan (Unlocked), Kang Ha-Neul (The Pirates: The Last Royal Treasure), Park Sung-Hoon (The Glory), and Yang Dong-Geun (Yaksha: Ruthless Operations). There are no details about their characters as of yet. Watch the video below.
The release date for Season 2 also has yet to be revealed, but Squid Game fans can get their fix in the meantime when Squid Game: The Challenge, a reality series based on the show, premieres in November. Spanning 10 episodes, the competition follows 456 players vying for a $4.56 million cash prize as opposed to the ₩45.6 billion (or roughly $38 million US) in the fictional Squid Game.
