"And now, Gi-hun returns," director, writer and executive producer Hwang Dong-hyuk said in a letter to fans.

"The Front Man returns. Season 2 is coming."

Hwang also teased new characters and developments in the second season.

"The man in the suit with ddakji might be back," he wrote, referring to the mysterious salesman who recruits desperate players to the game show.

The letter also said viewers will be introduced to Cheol-su, the "boyfriend" of the show's infamous animatronic doll, Young-hee.

Squid Game has been a runaway success for the streaming, becoming the "biggest-ever series at launch" for the company.

It's also the platform's first-ever Korean series to reach No. 1 in the United States, attracting 1.65 billion hours of viewing in the 28 days following its release.
