Yes, writer and director Hwang Dong-hyuk confirmed that the show is all set to return for a second season. In his words, the idea for season 2 is already in the 'planning process'. 

There’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice. But I will say there will indeed be a second season. It’s in my head right now. I’m in the planning process currently. But I do think it’s too early to say when and how that’s going to happen.

While he could not confirm much about what the show will entail, or even when can it be expected to return, he did confirm that the main character, Seong Gi-hun will be returning. 

I will promise you this, Gi-hun will come back. He will do something for the world

Suffice to say, fans have been overjoyed ever since the news broke out, and many people took to Twitter to share their excitement

As most fans are aware by now, Dong-hyuk actually waited for 10 years before Squid Game got the green light. And now the show has already been renewed for another season. And we can't wait for it to stream, and soon!
