Squid Game 2

*spoilers ahead for Squid Game*

Towards the end of the show, Gi-Hun who is the winner of the first Squid Game, is about to board a plane to Los Angeles to meet his daughter when he sees another man being recruited to play the Squid Game at the airport. He tries to call on the recruiter’s card to find out more about games but is told to get on the plane. He ignores them and proceeds to return to the airport. 

Squid Game 2 is likely to pick off from this scene and follow Gi-Hun and his journey to discovering the creators behind the show. There is likely a chance of him taking part in another iteration of the games. Squid Game 2 is said to release in late 2024.
