is returning for a second season! The upcoming continuation of this critically acclaimed series was revealed today at Tudum, the Netflix Global Fan event, and fans can look forward to Season 2 exploring the themes of mortality, sin, and justice with greater scale and depth.
Based on the legendary webtoon The Hellbound by Yeon Sang-ho and Choi Gyu-seok, Season 1 featured supernatural beings appearing out of nowhere to condemn people to hell, and a religious group named The New Truth flourishing as people searched for answers amid the chaos.
Described as “the new ” (CNN), the latest Korean blockbuster “aimed at your soul” (IndieWire), and “the show that will still be talked about a decade from now” (The Guardian), Hellbound also topped the 2021 Golden Tomato Best Horror Series category.
Season 2 will again be directed by Yeon (the director of Train to Busan and Peninsula) and co-written by Choi (creator of celebrated webtoon Songgot). Tudum revealed a reprise of Season 1’s cliffhanger ending, where protagonist Park Jung-ja, one of the first victims sent to hell, comes back via a shocking resurrection. At the event, this intriguing season finale twist was followed by the brief but spine-tingling official announcement of Season 2: “All Hell Breaks Loose Again.”
The expanded dystopian universe beyond imagination will only be available on Netflix.
