The second seasons of Squid Game and The Night Agent, Cobra Kai season 6 and Emily in Paris season 4, among others are all set to release in the second half of 2024.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos said Squid Game Season 2 will arrive in the second half of this year.

Along with the above mentioned series, The Night Agent, new seasons for Outer Banks, Ryan Murphy’s Monster anthology, whose second season will focus on Lyle and Erik Menendez. Among the new series set for the back half of the year are Peter Berg’s Western American Primeval, limited series Senna — about legendary Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna — and an adaptation of Elin Hilderbrand’s novel The Perfect Couple, starring Nicole Kidman and Liev Schreiber.

Squid Game series (2021), Netflix’s most popular show of all time, told the story of a divorced father and gambler (Lee Jung-Jae) who joins a secret competition with 456 total players. But the losers of each round are executed in the survival game until one victor remains and takes home the cash prize. It was directed by Hwang Dong-hyuk. The nine-episode series won three Golden Globe Awards, including best TV drama.

Specific dates for all of those shows will not be announced for a while, although Sarandos’ statements limit the release window from “sometime in 2024.” The schedule is due in part to production delays caused by last year’s dual labour strikes, which slowed down production for several months over the summer and fall.

Meanwhile, the second season of the much-anticipated Squid Game will see Lee Jung-jae and Lee Byung-hun return as Seong Gi-hun and Front Man, respectively. The cast also includes Yim Si-wan, Kang Ha-Neul, Park Sung-hoon and Yang Dong-geun as well as Park Gyu-young, Jo Yu-ri, Kang Ae-sim, Lee David, Lee Jin-uk, Choi Seung-hyun, Roh Jae-won and Won Ji-an.

Last year, the streamer came up with Squid Game: The Challenge which was similar to the show where participants took part in the games that were showcased on the series. There is also a video game in the making.
