Squid Game took over Netflix for a bit and it has people wondering if there will be a second season. While Netflix has yet to confirm anything, the show’s creator said he’s working on it. Hwang Dong-hyuk was at a Squid Game red carpet event earlier this week when he mentioned he feels he needs to make a second season. He drove it home yesterday when he told the Associated Press the same thing. He said, “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.” Last month, Netflix told CNN that it was the most successful launch a series has had. So we better all start preparing ourselves now for another rollercoaster of a season.

Greta Van Fleet Goes on Tour

The new year is right around the corner and that brings new shows to look forward to. The Greta Van Fleet tour is at the top of our list. The tour will kick off on March 10th in Michigan and the band will be joined by Rival Sons and The Velveteers on their North American dates.
