Korean school kids tackling Zombies looks to be a winning combination for a Netflix original series. But will 'All of Us Are Dead' live up to the hype? We'll have to wait until the series drops to give it a full review.

Netflix original ‘All of Us Are Dead' is the live-action adaptation of the popular Korean webtoon ‘Now at Our School'. 

The show is coming to Netflix in 2021, and it revolves around a group of students trapped in a high school during a zombie outbreak. The series will reportedly have eight 40-minute episodes and will star Yoon Chan-young, Park Ji-hoo, Park Solomon and Yoo In-soo.

South Korean TV has seen an enormous rise in popularity due to the worldwide success of the Netflix original ‘Squid Game‘. No doubt the streaming service will be hoping for a similar reaction to their upcoming Zombie series. 

‘All of Us Are Dead' won't be the first South Korean Zombie drama to hit Netflix; fans of the genre will probably be aware of the brilliant show ‘Kingdom‘. Interestingly, that was adapted from the webcomic (The Kingdom of the Gods) tooSo it seems Netflix has hit on a winning formula, trawl webcomics for new material!

South Korea has an impressive history of producing compelling Zombie movies. In 2016, ‘Train To Busan‘ revived a flagging genre and received widespread critical acclaim. It also made remarkable figures at the box office, earning $98 million worldwide.

Korean school kids taking on Zombies looks to be a winning combination for a Netflix original series. However, we'll have to wait until the series drops to give it a full review. Fingers crossed that ‘All of Us Are Dead' lives up to the hype. So far only one trailer for the series has been released, which gives a glimpse of what to expect. The show looks fantastic, with big-budget effects and faster movies zombies like the ones in ‘World War Z' rather than the glacial paced crawlers in ‘The Walking Dead‘. 

All of Us Are Dead is written by Chun Sung-il, and directed by Lee JQ and Kim Nam-su. It will be produced by JTBC Studios in association with Film Monster, and will premiere worldwide, only on Netflix. And if you can't wait, check out Hellbound to tie you over!

The review score is provisional based on what we've seen so far. It will be updated once the series is released.
