The Korean high school Zombie series is back with season 2! The cast from 'All of Us Are Dead' made an announcement Tuesday, June 7 to make sure that we're ready for the second installment for the students from Hyosan High School as they take on the second wave of zombies roaming outside their neighborhood!
The announcement was made by the four main characters: Lomon, Park Ji Hoo, Yoon Chan Young, and Cho Yi Hyun. The news was announced as part of Netflix's Geekend Week showcasing new and returning series. The zombie series entered the top ten non-English shows of all time, second to only Squid Game, and garnered an astonishing 124.79 million hours viewed in its debut on Netflix from January 24 to January 30, 2022.
Based on the Korean webtoon "Now at Our School" by Joo Dong Geun, 'All of Us Are Dead' follows a group of high school students at ground zero of a zombie outbreak experiment gone wrong by their science teacher. Cut off from civilization, the group must band together and find a way to escape their school and reach safety.
South Korea has seen a distinct rise in zombie-related series by Netflix namely Kingdom and Kingdom: Ashin of the North. It seems that Korea is now ground zero and that Netflix has decided to create zombie-themed movies and shows. Koreans have also included zombies in their variety shows. A popular Korean variety show called "The Great Escape" consistently has zombies chase their hosts as they battle their way out of a designated location.
