Squid Game was THE sensational series of 2021. With an intriguing plot, the elements of a K-drama, and the lives of our favorite characters at stake, many people including actors became fans of the show. One such actor was none other than Leonardo DiCaprio.
It was revealed that the creator of the series Hwang Dong-hyuk could have had the Titanic actor for a cameo in the second season of the series, but the plan didn’t flow accordingly.
Leonardo DiCaprio May Cameo In Squid Game Season 3
The creator of the series Hwang Dong-hyuk recently appeared at a press conference in Seoul for the celebration of Squid Game’s six Emmy wins! The 51-year-old went on to reveal some tidbits about what the people might expect for Squid Game season 2.
Speaking about the setting of the second season, the series will be based in a dystopian Seoul only with the lead actor Lee Jung-jae returning for his iconic role of Seong Gi-hun (Contestant #456). Most of the familiar characters were dead at the end of season 1 along with another news by the creator…no Hollywood celebrities.
“There will be no known Hollywood actor in Season 2. That’s not in the plan and if the stage changes, maybe in Season 3 – but for Season 2, it is still set in Korea. Leonardo DiCaprio did say he’s a big fan of ‘Squid Game,’ so maybe if time or chances allow, we can ask him to join the games.”
Since the setting is in the alleys of Korea only, there will not be any cameo by a Hollywood celebrity even though being fans of the series. They could appear as the oligarchs for whom the game is designed for, but we will leave it up to Hwang Dong-hyuk to decide for the better.
Squid Game Made It Big At The Emmys
Squid Game, being the sensational series, won a total of six Emmys to add to the praises and applause that the series had gotten. Lee Jung-jae even found himself holding the Emmy for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series” by beating Bob Odenkirk and many others. The series also received the Emmy for “Outstanding Drama Series”.
It would indeed be fun to see Leonardo DiCaprio acting in the series along with many other actors. The second season is currently in development and will not be seen until the year 2024, however, the statements of Hwang Dong-hyuk about a cameo in Season 3 made the people wonder about the abrupt ending that season 2 may face and how they will get much more of Squid Game in the future.
Squid Game is available to stream on Netflix.
