The only thing worse than high school, is a zombie-infested high school, as proven in the new trailer for the upcoming Netflix series All of Us Are Dead.
All of Us Are Dead is based on Joo Dong-geun’s Now At Our School webtoon, which was published on Korean service Navear between 2009 and 2011. You can read the first nine episodes here, although the rest have not yet been translated into English.
The coming-of-age zombie thriller All of Us Are Dead follows a group of high school students who become trapped after a zombie virus spreads through their school.
The zombie genre has proven to be a success for Netflix, which currently has a number of zombie series and movies on their service, many of them Netflix Originals. Similarly, since the success of Squid Game Korean dramas have also been a very lucrative genre for the service, making All of Us Are Dead a likely success already.
Netflix clearly believes the show will be a success, stating that: “All of Us Are Dead is poised to write an exciting new chapter in the Korean zombie genre, as director Lee brings fresh energy through the solid narrative and the attention-grabbing cinematography he is well known for.”
Written by Chun Sung-il, and directed by Lee Jae-kyoo and Kim Nam-su, All of Us Are Dead will star Yoon Chan-young (Doctor John, Nobody Knows), Park Ji-hoo (Little Women, Beautiful World), Cho Yi-hyun (School 2021, Inspector Koo), Park Solomon (Sweet Revenge, 4 Legendary Witches) and Yoo In-soo (At Eighteen, Tale of a Fairy). The series will consist of eight episodes, each with a runtime of around 42 minutes.
All of Us Are Dead will release globally on Netflix on 28th January.
