A lot of fans are wondering when season 2 of Squid Game is going to release. The record-breaking success of the show has forced the creators to come up with season 2. They said it is their duty to release season 2 because the fans cannot keep shut about it. While the official teaser is out and the announcement is done, the scripting of the show is still underway. Furthermore, the shooting is yet to start now so there is no confirmation regarding the release date. All we hope is for scripting to be over soon so the shooting can start as quickly as possible. By next year we all can get to see the show.
Globally, Squid Game upon its release became the most-watched show ever and it is only fair to say that the fans are expecting more of it. Since this is such a big responsibility, the fans need to understand that the entire show must be given an ample amount of time. To make a better season, the makers should be under no pressure to deliver a masterpiece. In the first season watching crossed 1.7 billion, a humongous record in itself and we are expecting the numbers to be even better.

Moreover, the added pressure is also due to the fact that usually, the second season of any show leaves fans a little disappointed. Squid Game makers are very much aware of this situation. And since this show has such a global appeal, probably the biggest, they can’t let make the same mistake. Expectations are high, the contest is higher, and the stakes are the highest. However, whatever is shown thus far, has made fans start the conversation about the show again, always a positive sign.
