After a season 1 which brought together more than 100 million viewers, the sequel to the “Squid Game” series is highly anticipated. But its creator Hwang Dong-Hyuk prefers to first look into a new project, which will mock his own success, as he confided to our American colleagues from the magazine “Deadline”.
Season 2 of Squid Game is definitely not about to hit our screens. Hwang Dong-Hyuk, the creator of Netflix’s event series and “the most anti-capitalist jerk of the moment” according to our columnist Bruno Donnet, is working on another project. This is what he explained to our American colleagues from the magazine Deadline. Hwang Dong-Hyuk is indeed preparing a satirical series that will make fun of the success of his series. Squid Game.
Make fun of personal experience
The satirical project is still in its infancy. Hwang Dong-Hyuk therefore does not give too many details for the moment. It simply reveals the provisional title of this new series, “The best show on the planet”, or “The best show on the planet”. In particular, it will be a question of the personal experience of the creator of Squid Gamewhich found itself in the limelight overnight.
Squid Game was a phenomenal global success, with the series launching being the best in Netflix history. Season 1 was viewed by over 111 million subscribers in less than a month. Last week, Hwang Dong-Hyuk said he had started writing season 2 … but had only written three pages so far.
