All of Us Are Dead will be coming back to life for another go-round. Netflix has renewed the hit Korean drama series for a second season. The pickup was announced Monday on Day 1 of Netflix’s Geeked Week. You can watch the cast video above.
The 12-episode first season follows a group of students trapped in their high school who find themselves in dire situations as they seek to be rescued from a zombie invasion.
There has been skyrocketing interest in Korean dramas in the wake of Squid Game‘s phenomenal success. The zombie YA series rose to No. 1 in its seventh day of release on Netflix’s U.S. daily Top 10 list, riding on the coattails of Squid Game, which hit the top spot on Day 4 of its release. After its premiere, All of Us Are Dead shot straight into the top 10 most watched non-English TV series in 91 countries and stayed there for two consecutive weeks. It also drew 361 million viewing hours in its first 10 days.
Lee JQ and Kim Nam-su are creators and directors; Lee JQ is showrunner, and Chun Sung-il is writer. The cast includes Park Ji-hu, Yoon Chan-young, Cho Yi-hyun, Lomon, Yoo In-soo, Lim Jae-hyeok and Lee You-mi.
