As big as Squid Game was in 2021, we don’t blame you if you had forgotten about season 2 coming later this year to Netflix. It’s been a while, but marketing is finally starting.
We learned last summer about new players coming into season 2 of the hit show and little else. Moreover, Netflix and series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk have been secretive about the whole thing, distracting diehard fans with real-life game show Squid Game: The Challenge meanwhile. Now, we’re actually getting footage from season 2 at last.
As you can see, the whole preview runs under 15 seconds if you take out the Netflix outro, so there’s not a lot to dissect here. It confirms, however, we’re likely walking into a very different second season here. After many tribulations, Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae) became the winner of the games and learned the truth behind them. Shortly afterwards, he dyed his hair bright red and got a haircut before deciding to take on the people behind the twisted contest.
