    K-drama fans have another series to look forward to with the highly anticipated release of “All of Us Are Dead” on Netflix. 

    Worth the wait: “All of Us Are Dead,” the live-action adaptation of the webtoon “Now at Our School, All of Us Are Dead” (“지금 우리 학교는”) by Joo Dong-geun, is set to release in January 2022, according to Rappler.

    • The series will revolve around a group of students trapped in a school during a zombie breakout. 
    • The show will reportedly have eight 40-minute episodes and will star Yoon Chan-young, Park Ji-hoo, Jo Yi-hyun, Park Solomon and Yoo In-soo, according to My Drama List
    • Filmmaker Lee Jae-gyoo, who helmed “Trap,” “King2Hearts” and “Intimate Strangers,” directed the series using a script written by Chun Sung-il.

    More undead fun: South Korea has produced a number of international hits in the zombie genre, including the massively popular “Train to Busan” and its sequel “Peninsula,” among others. 

    • “Train to Busan” and “Peninsula” director Yeon Sang-ho also has another upcoming supernatural series on Netflix called “Hellbound.”
    • While not about zombies, the show will feature supernatural beings suddenly popping up around the world.
    • “Hellbound” has been described as the “next must-binge Netflix series from Korea” and will be released on Netflix in November. 
    • Netflix’s other noteworthy zombie productions include the film “Alive,” the fantasy period drama “Kingdom” and the drama’s spin-off film “Kingdom: Ashin of the North.”
