Despite not yet being renewed for a second season, Hwang Dong-hyuk has some plans in mind for the hit series.

In a recent interview, Hwang disclosed some potential storylines if the Netflix show continues.

"There are some other stories in the series that have not been addressed. For example, the story of the police officer and the story of his brother, The Front Man," the director told The Hollywood Reporter.



"So if I end up creating season 2, I'd like to explore that storyline — what is going on between those two brothers? And then I could also go into the story of that recruiter in the suit who plays the game of ddakji with Gi-hun and gives him the card in the first episode."

Hwang added, "And, of course, we could go with Gi-hun's story as he turns back, and explore more about how he's going to navigate through his reckoning with the people who are designing the games."

Season 2 of the show hasn't yet been announced, but Hwang said that there will be many possible storylines.

While he was aware that the thriller's first season concluded in an open-ended way, he still believed that this might serve as a good final conclusion to the story as a whole.

Hwang explained, "Season 1 ends with Gi-hun turning back and not getting on the plane to the States. And that was, in fact, my way of communicating the message that you should not be dragged along by the competitive flow of society, but that you should start thinking about who has created the whole system — and whether there is some potential for you to turn back and face it."

"So it's not necessarily Gi-hun turning back to get revenge. It could actually be interpreted as him making very on-the-spot eye contact with what is truly going on in the bigger picture," he continued. "So I thought that might be a good simple, but ambiguous, way to end the story for Gi-hun."
