In December last year, during an interaction with Korean network KBS, Hwang revealed that not only has he finalised the plotline for the second season but he is also in talks with Netflix for the show’s third season. In the same interview, Hwang also talked a bit about Season 2's storyline. He said, “The focus will be the story of Seong Gi Hun (played by lead actor Lee Jung) unravelling (the mysteries of the organisation behind the game). The overarching plotline of Season 2 will be the story of the people that Gi Hun meets and the people he chases after.”
