Global megahit "Squid Game" will return for a second season, Netflix Inc announced on Sunday, offering a few hints about what is to come in the dark Korean drama.


"Squid Game" became Netflix's most-watched series when it was released in September 2021. 


The show tells the story of cash-strapped contestants who play childhood games for a chance of life-changing sums of money. It inspired countless memes and Halloween costumes and kickstarted sales of green tracksuits.


Writer and director Hwang Dong-hyuk teased a few details about the show's second season in a letter released by Netflix.


Characters Gi-hun and The Front Man will return, he said, and "the man in the suit with ddakji might be back."


"You'll also be introduced to Young-hee's boyfriend," he added.


Young-hee is a motion-sensing animatronic doll featured in one of the games.


Netflix did not say when the new season would be released.
