Reportedly, Leonardo DiCaprio could feature in a future season of the show. That’s correct, folks!

Hwang Dong-Hyuk, the writer and director of the show, revealed:

There will be no known Hollywood actor in Season 2. That’s not in the plan and if the stage changes, maybe in Season 3 – but for Season 2, it is still set in Korea. Leonardo DiCaprio did say he’s a big fan of Squid Game, so maybe if time or chances allow, we can ask him to join the games.


The shooting for the second season of this award-winning show will commence in 2023 and be released in 2024.


Squid Game, which revolves around several cash-strapped individuals competing in deadly children’s games for money, became the most watched show of all time. In fact, it is the first non-English-language show to be nominated in the main drama category.


We just can’t wait to watch Leonardo DiCaprio sprinkling his magic in Squid Game S3!
