It has been over two years since Squid Game Season 2 was officially announced. The first season was released worldwide in September 2021 to critical acclaim and international attention. However, fans have yet to see a proper preview of the series, with only a few stills and a brief teaser released in February. Thankfully, that is about to change as the show will take center stage of Lucca Comics & Games 2024 and give a preview of the highly anticipated second season.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series creator, writer, and director Hwang Dong-hyuk will join the lead stars Lee Jung-jae and Wi Ha-joon, who respectively play Seong Gi-hun (Player 456) and police officer Hwang Jun-ho, to preview Squid Game Season 2 at this year’s Lucca Comics & Games on October 31. Europe’s No. 1 comics and gaming convention will occur in the medieval city of Lucca in central Italy and run from October 30 to November 3.

However, Netflix has remained mum about the specifics of the show’s panel at the event. The series' second season is set to release in December 2024, so new footage or a trailer is expected to be unveiled there.

Aside from Squid Game Season 2, the convention will also feature the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Dungeons & Dragons, the 40th anniversary of Tetris, and the 25th anniversary of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece, which Netflix adapted into a live-action in 2023. The festival also unveiled this year’s official poster, called The Butterfly Effect, inspired by Giacomo Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly and designed by the Japanese artist and Final Fantasy character designer Yoshitaka Amano.
