A Netflix spokesperson told CNBC that a second season of the show “is in discussions, but has yet to be confirmed.”

Speaking to reporters, Hwang dashed hopes. He said that while he plans to return lead actor Lee Jung-jae as main character Seong Gi-hyun, he did not know when production for the project would begin.

“It’s all in my head right now,” Hwang said. “I’m in the planning process right now. But I think it’s too early to say when and how that will happen.”

The premise of “Squid Game” came from Hwang’s own family’s struggles after the global financial crisis in 2009. The series follows 456 players, all of whom are in deep financial debt, as they risk their lives to play a series of deadly children’s games for big cash prizes.

The show premiered on Netflix in September and quickly became one of the streamer’s most popular shows. In its first 28 days on the platform, “Squid Game” was viewed by 111 million users for less than two minutes, the most of any other series during that time frame.

The previous record-holder was “Bridgeton”, which was viewed by 82 million subscribers for at least 2 minutes during its first 28 days on the service.
