Transcript for ‘Squid Game’ season 2 may arrive on Netflix late next year
- Time now for "Pop News" and Mona Kosar Abdi is here. You know, Mona, this is my opportunity to say, in honor of Dan Harris, what's popping? - Oh, OK. - It sounds a little more cool when I say it. - It does, honestly. - Does a little? That was good. - I need you to work on the awkward dad vibe a little. Sorry, Dan Harris. Alrighty. We were talking-- I was spoiling pop for a little bit for them because we're already talking about where we are starting things off about Squid Game, the hit series from South Korea shattering Netflix viewing records. There wasn't supposed to be a season two, but given the show's success, it was a must-do. And now, creator Hwang Dong-hyuk tells Vanity Fair that he expects it will premiere late next year or early 2024. That could be as long as 2 and 1/2 years after the original series aired. But dedicated fans will just have to be patient, myself included. The director promising more games, of course, with humanity put through the test. It kind of was left off in a dead end, like, you didn't really know where it was going. So I'm excited to see how they bring it back for season two. All right. Well now, to a movie that just got a 6-minute standing ovation at the Cannes Film Festival. 3,000 Years of Longing stars Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba in a fantasy fairy tale with Elba playing a genie. The movie hits theaters in August. Ready to see that one. Also, 6-minute standing ovation, I feel like at one point, somebody wanted to sit down and they-- HOST: Yeah. - --kept standing because everyone was standing. And finally, the family whose TikTok video went viral, but not for the reasons that they expected. Martina Valenzuela of Argentina, in the green t-shirt, and her family were doing a popular dance challenge. But their pooch, Iron, ended up stealing the show, looking to get in on the action and even ending up in a hilarious wrestling match with Valenzuela's kid cousin, Simon. 45 million views on TikTok and a climbing. Those two, she says, are inseparable. DAN HARRIS: You can't go wrong with dogs and kids, right? HOST: That is hilarious. Yeah. DAN HARRIS: It's always-- always a success. Mona, great to have you this weekend. Before we leave though, we do want to give a shout out to our friend, a member of our GMA family, producer Matt Stone and his bride Emma-- HOST: Aw. DAN HARRIS: --tied the knot this weekend. Congratulations to the happy couple. Look at that picture right there. HOST: Yeah. DAN HARRIS: We wish you a lifetime of blessings and patience and compromise - Yes. - All right. Thanks so much for watching ABC News. Be sure to stay tuned to Martha Raddatz in This Week later on this morning. Have a great rest of your weekend, everybody. [MUSIC PLAYING]
