The original season of Squid Games exploded on Netflix in 2021, and it became the streaming giant’s most-watched non-English TV show (2.2 billion hours watched as of January 2024).
Fans have been eagerly awaiting a release date for the second season of the ultra-violent Squid Games, and Netflix confirmed today that Squid Games season 2 will premiere later in 2024.
From the press release:
“Looking ahead, despite last year’s strikes pushing back the launch of some titles, we have a big, bold slate for 2024. Audiences will be able to choose from hit returning dramas like The Diplomat S2, Bridgerton S3, Squid Game S2 and Empress S2; unscripted series like Tour de France: Unchained S2, Love is Blind S6, F1: Drive to Survive S6 and Full Swing S2; and brand new shows like 3 Body Problem (based on the best selling novel and from the Game of Thrones showrunners), Griselda (starring Sofia Vegara, which premieres this week), The Gentlemen (from Guy Ritchie), Eric (starring Benedict Cumberbach), Avatar: The Last Airbender, Cien Años de Soledad, from Colombia based on the novel by Gabriel García Márquez and Senna from Brazil.”
Netflix has not confirmed an exact date for the premiere of Squid Games season 2.
