Squid Game – Picture: Netflix

Netflix’s Squid Game took the world by storm last year and introduced millions to K-dramas, and with it billions of hours watched. By becoming the biggest television show on the planet, naturally, those involved in the series have become some of the most coveted actors around, and have been approached for exciting new opportunities both on and off Netflix.

We know that the second season of Squid Game is on the way to Netflix in the future, however, we’d be surprised to see many of the faces from the first season return to reprise their roles.
