However, he expressed himself more optimistically about the possibility of a change of scenery in the third. season, adding that since DiCaprio is an avid fan of the TV show, perhaps if time or circumstances permit, together with his team will be able to ask the star to become "part of the games".
Hwang confirmed that filming for Squid Game season 2 will begin in 2023 and the series will be made available on Netflix in 2024. The Korean director also added that the second season has gotten a significant budget increase, and that the games it will cover. plot have all already been decided and confirmed.
In my opinion it would be interesting to see seasons of Squid Game set in different places, after the first two in South Korea. Maybe Europe or South America could be stimulating and impactful scenarios for the public. As for DiCaprio, I'd like to see him in a villain part, perhaps one of the billionaires who sadistically enjoy the perverse game at the center of the Squid Game narrative.

Squid Game, the reality show arrives too (with a screaming prize pool)

456 competitors will compete in apparently innocent games, "as children", to obtain a millionaire prize pool. It is no longer (only) the plot of the Netflix Squid Game series but also that of the reality show inspired by the Korean title. 

It will be titled Squid Game: The Challenge: a reality show that promises to engage audiences from home with real challenges, although obviously not as deadly as those of the original Netflix series. Both the initial number of competitors (456 people) and the presence of a prize pool will be maintained, currently estimated at 4,56 million dollars. All obviously always under the aegis of Netflix, which will thus exceed two records in the field of reality TV.
