Keep your suits, because Netflix is a huge hit with the squid. The series has been announced for a second season by the company.
On Thursday, Netflix co-CEO and chief content officer Ted Sarandos confirmed the return of the Korean miniseries during his fourth-quarter earnings call.
When asked by Fidelity Management and Research’s Nidhi Gupta if there would be a second season of Netflix’s most popular shows, Sarados said there are even more gruesome events on the way.
“Without a doubt,” he affirmed. “The universe has just begun the squid game.
Previously, Hwang Dong-hyuk said the franchise would return and that he was “in the planning process.” Sarandos did not say when or how significantly the series would be expanded.
If the series gets a full Stranger Things processing, which might include games and other media. Netflix has emphasized time and again that gaming is an essential component of its future success.
The fact that a squid-themed game is already available on Netflix and has its own line of Funko Pop merchandise and collectibles in the Netflix store should tell you everything you need to know. A new Bape collaboration will debut Friday.
