SEOUL - Hit K-drama Squid Game, which is already confirmed for a second season, may have a third season as well, according to its creator, Hwang Dong-hyuk.

"I'm in talks with Netflix over Season 2 as well as Season 3," he said in an interview with South Korean broadcaster KBS on Tuesday (Dec 28). "We will come to a conclusion any time soon."

"We know that many people are waiting, so everyone is working hard to prepare for the next season with a positive outlook," he added.

Later that day, Netflix said in a statement that "it's true that we are discussing a wide variety of possibilities for Squid Game, including the production of a Season 3, but nothing has yet been set in stone".

A second season of the series, which was the most watched show on Netflix, was confirmed last month (Nov).

Hwang also divulged a bit more of the plot of the upcoming season, which is not expected until 2023.

He said the next season will follow protagonist Gi-hun (played by Lee Jung-jae), the only winner from the first season's deadly contest of debt-ridden people to win 45.6 billion won (S$52 million).

He added: "The overarching plotline of Season 2 will be the story of the people that Gi-hun meets and the people he chases after."
