It's happening!

Netflix's smash-hit series Squid Game will be back for a second season, according to creator Hwang Dong-hyuk.

The show's writer, director and creator revealed the good news during a red carpet interview on Monday night, with his lead actor Lee Jung-jae (Gi-hun) standing alongside him.

"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!" he told The Associated Press.

"But I will say there will indeed be a second season."

Hwang says he's planning out the next chapter of the show, though he doesn't have a timeline for when it will drop.

"It's in my head right now," he said.

He was also pretty careful about revealing any of his plans, including whether or not Gi-hun will be going back into the game after winning it all in season 1.

"I do think it's too early to say when and how that's going to happen," he said. "So I will promise you this: Gi-hun will come back. He will do something for the world."

The first season of the South Korean series debuted in September and became an international hit, breaking Netflix's viewership records while inspiring Halloween costumes, pop-ups and escape rooms.

The show pits a bunch of down-on-their-luck adults against each other in a series of deadly playground games. Contestants are monitored by masked guards in red coveralls, and tens of millions of dollars await whoever wins.

The first season featured games such as "red light, green light" and "tug of war," and we can only imagine what else might be in store for season two.

How about a deadly game of "red rover," or a few rounds of "musical chairs" over a pit of lava? Viewers will likely have to wait a while to find out.

Netflix hasn't officially announced that the show will be back, and there's no timeline for shooting it.

It reportedly took 10 years and a lot of stress for Hwang to get the first season to the streaming service, so let's just hope the next season comes along sooner than that.

Things got spicy on Netflix Canada last week with the release of Too Hot To Handle Season 3. If you haven't already binge-watched the whole thing, the racy reality show places a group of fun-loving singles on an island under the pretence that they'll be partying their days away.

The singles, however, are in for a shock when they find out that they're actually on Too Hot To Handle, and that they'll have to refrain from any sort of physical romance or risk losing money from the prize fund.

At the start of the global pandemic, the first season of Netflix's Love is Blind gave us the emotional rollercoaster we needed.

We were all — whether shamelessly or not — glued to the TV as we watched Mark and Jessica's downward spiral of a "situationship," while also cheering for a love like Lauren and Cameron's: unconditional, transparent and just good vibes.
