The basketball icon’s thoughts were shared in a video tweeted by sports writer Kyle Goon.
“I didn’t like the ending though,” James told Lakers teammate Anthony Davis.
The hit Netflix’s series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk was asked for his reaction to that by The Guardian.
“Have you seen Space Jam 2?” he said. “LeBron James is cool and can say what he wants. I respect that. I’m very thankful he watched the whole series. But I wouldn’t change my ending.”
Slam dunk, sir.
Squid Game has become an international phenomenon with its plot about a group of poor contestants who must play a deadly competition of children’s games in an attempt to get out of debt.
Netflix hasn’t yet officially announced a Season 2, although that seems all but certain. The show has become Netflix’s biggest-ever TV show, at least based on the streamer’s metric that counts number of households who access a given title for at least 2 minutes. The company said 142 million member households — about two-thirds of all subscribers — sampled Squid Game in its first four weeks of release, a new record. (Note that Netflix’s measurements aren’t verified by a third party.)
In The Guardian interview, Hwang confirmed that he’s talking to Netflix about a second season of Squid Game.
“Of course there is talk. That’s inevitable because it’s been such a success,” he said. “I have a very high-level picture in my mind, but I’m not going to work on it straight away. There’s a film I really want to make. I’m thinking about which to do first. I’m going to talk to Netflix.”
Hwang joked, “It’s possible that I have to do season two to become as rich as Squid Games’ winner.”
