Hwang Dong-hyuk, the creator of Squid Game , said in the past that he is working on the second season of the well-known Korean show.
Today in an online interview with Korean broadcaster KBS, Hwang spoke for the first time about a third season:

A mysterious invitation to participate in the competition is sent to people in dire need of money. The 456 participants from all walks of life are trapped in a secret place where they compete to win 45.6 billion won. At each turn they play a popular Korean game for children like “One, two, three, star”, but whoever loses… dies. Who will win and what is the real reason for the race?
Written and directed by Hwang Dong-Hyuk (The Fortress, Miss Granny and Silenced), the series had been in development since 2008. Hwang initially wanted to make a film, but due to the complexity of the plot, he was unable to secure the investments and the cast. .
