Netflix has announced the addition of new cast members for Season 2 of the popular show Squid Game. This comes after receiving criticism for not including any female players in the initial cast announcement. The streaming giant made the announcement during its virtual fan convention called Tudum.
The new cast members for Squid Game Season 2 include Park Gyu-Young, Jo Yu-Ri, Kang Ae-Sim, Lee David, Lee Jin-Uk, Choi Seung-Hyun, Roh Jae-Won, and Won Ji-An. However, details about their characters have not been revealed yet. Many people are excited to see female characters being included in the show. The production for Season 2 is expected to begin later this year.
The Season 1 finale of Squid Game sets the stage for the story of the sequel. The main character, Seong Gi-Hun, decides not to fly to America and instead seeks revenge against those who organize the deadly competition. The story will also explore the complicated narrative of the Hwang brothers. Jun-Ho, who survived a shooting by the Front Man, may hold the key to uncovering the truth about his older brother and helping Gi-Hun expose the people behind Squid Game.
It is unclear how these different storylines will come together in Season 2. While it seems that the new cast members will also be players, some of them may play adjacent roles to the actual participants. In addition to the storylines, viewers can expect new games in Squid Game Season 2.
