If the show does get a sequel, viewers may have to wait a while as the director, Hwang Dong-hyuk told Variety "the process of making it was long and stressful".

"I don't have well-developed plans for Squid Game 2. It is quite tiring just thinking about it."

Fans of the show will be hoping for a change of heart as the excitement over the show continues to build.

What happened in Squid Game season one?

The show is based on 456 people with financial trouble, and takes on an adult Hunger Games format.

Each person is invited to participate in a survival game in order to win £28million.

The main character of the show is Seong Gi-hun – a cash-strapped divorcee who is constantly on the run from debt collectors, and struggles to support his mother and daughter.

They are drugged and taken to a secret location, where they are told they will compete in children's games for money.

Almost half of the players are killed by the end of the first game, and the rest vote to leave, citing the contract.

After a few days outside, the players realise their lives are no better and return.

This time however, a detective manages to sneak on board the ship to search for his missing brother.

As the game of survival continues, alliances starts to form and the detective conducts a secret investigation.

By the final game there are only three contestants still alive, and they are treated to a steak dinner to celebrate.

The players are encouraged to bring their steak knives and an attack ensues leaving just two remaining to play, Gi-hun and his opponent Sang-Woo.

After a tough fight Gi-hun is about to win when he asks Sang-Woo to drop out the game.

He refuses as he does not want to go back to his former life and sacrifices himself, asking Gi-hun to look after his family.

On Gi-hun's return to his old life – with his new fortune – he arrives back to find his mother has died.

It then jumps a year into the future and we see Gi-hun living the same cash-strapped life and refusing to spend the money, when he receives an invitation.

The show's surprise ending sees Gi-hun discover the identity of the game creator, and turn his life around.
