Abstract. In the previous paper, we gave a characterization of backward shift invariant subspaces of the Hardy space in the bidisc which satisfy the doubly commuting condition $S_zS^*_w = S^*_wS_z$ for the compression operators $S_z$ and $S_w$. In this paper, we give a characterization of backward shift invariant subspaces satisfying $S^2_zS^*_w = S^*_wS^2_z$.
