Readers have shared their views on runaway Netflix hit ‘Squid Game’ being renewed for a second series.

The show’s creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has confirmed the global success of the show will see it return for a second series with a fresh batch of episodes.

The record-breaking series was a hit with Netflix subscribers meaning they have “no choice” but to film a second series.

The show’s creator said: "So, 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."

The creator recently told The Guardian that he had other projects he wants to work on first so will speak to Netflix.

He said: "That's inevitable because it's been such a success. I am considering it. I have a very high-level picture in my mind, but I'm not going to work on it straight away.

"There's a film I really want to make. I'm thinking about which to do first. I'm going to talk to Netflix."

The film has enjoyed global success inspiring many Halloween costumes and social media trends since its release.

On our Facebook page, Cumbrians have discussed whether they enjoyed the first nine episodes of the show.

Heather Marie Berry believes that the show should not be so freely available for young people to watch. She said: “I admit I watched it but I think it's terrible. It’s violent and sadistic and a bad message to give out. It also should be an 18 rating or even better banned.”

Nic Barnes also wasn’t a fan of the Korean show, finding it overrated. She added: “I give it a 3/10. It is way too over hyped by people with social media accounts.”

Cooky Mathew used the show’s graphicness to describe what she’d do instead of watching. She commented: “I’d rather spoon my eyes out with forks.”

Not everyone hates the show, however. Mary Dixon posted: “Well, I enjoy watching it.”
