It looks as though the Korean zombie horror genre isn’t going away from Netflix just yet, as the streamer has ordered yet another Original series, called All of Us Are Dead, to hit the small screen soon.
The series is based on the highly-popular Korean horror web series, Now At Our School, written by Chun Sung-il, who will also pen the story for the Netflix adaptation. Helming the series as co-director is Lee JQ (Beethoven Virus, Damo: The Legendary Police Woman), alongside Kim Nam-su.
All of Us Are Dead follows the story of a group of high school students who have been trapped in their school after a widespread zombie virus has afflicted the country. If you’ve watched the likes of High School of the Dead (maybe without the titillating stuff), or Hulu’s Freakish, then this might be the show for you.
No release date for All of Us Are Dead has been announced yet, but What’s On Netflix reports that it might be “as early as December 2020”, or even 2021, depending on if the production has been affected by external circumstances such as COVID-19.
After the profound success of Kingdom and its second season, All of Us Are Dead is Netflix’s attempt at establishing itself as somewhat of a niche in the genre. How exactly it fares remains to be seen, but we know many zombie fans will definitely be raring for this one.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
