Squid Game is the Korean thriller that became an instant cult classic and one of Netflix's biggest ever hits. 

The twisted nine-part series has taken the world by storm with fans desperate to dress up as different Squid Game characters for Halloween.

And now that's fans have binge-watched the series several times and have got themselves one of those iconic green tracksuits, they're begging for a series two.

Fans of the hit dystopian series will know that a new series was looking unlikely- until recently.

When the show dropped, it was revealed that the series' director Hwang Dong-hyuk was not in a hurry to make a second season.

Dong-hyuk actually first started writing the series back in 2008.

Speaking to Variety, he said: "I don’t have well-developed plans for Squid Game 2.

"It is quite tiring just thinking about it.

"But if I were to do it, I would certainly not do it alone.

"I’d consider using a writers’ room and would want multiple experienced directors."

But according to The Guardian, that is exactly what might be happening.

Hwang Dong-hyuk is currently in talks with Netflix's big decision-makers.

Dong-hyuk said: "Of course there is talk,"

"That's inevitable because it's been such a success.

"I am considering it. I have a very high-level picture in my mind, but I'm not going to work on it straight away."

As of yet, we don't know if it will be a red light or green light for season two but the possibilities have left fans reeling.

What games could be in season 2?

There is a lot of speculation floating around what games will actually be featured if and when a new series comes out.

According to OBLG, bookmakers are already taking bets on which treasured British playground games might be included in the show's next run.

Hide and Seek has been pegged as the most likely to make an appearance with the bookie's odds at 1/10 with a staggering 90.91% probability. 

Coming in a close second and third are other playground favourites, are Tag at 2/3 or 60.24% probability along with Musical Chairs at even 1/1 odds with a 50% chance.

Other games included Simon Says, Hopscotch and Conkers to name a few.
