Netflix’s most-watched series ever, has gotten the green light for a second season.

Hwang Dong-hyuk, the show’s creator had this to say, “It took 12 years to bring the first season of Squid Game to life last year,” Hwang began. “But it took 12 days for Squid Game to become the most popular Netflix series ever. As the writer, director, and producer of Squid Game, a huge shout out to fans around the world. Thank you for watching and loving our show.”

Hwang confirmed that many familiar faces will return and many new ones as well. At least one new character has been created: “You’ll also be introduced to Young-hee’s boyfriend, Cheol-su.” Fans of the series may recall that Young-hee is the haunting animatronic doll that leads the deadly game of “Red Light, Green Light” in the show’s first episode.
