Proving its mastery of the zombie genre with hits like Train to Busan and Kingdom, South Korea is trying their hand at another zombie series: All of Us Are Dead—only this time, it’s set in a high school. Same ol’ zombies, different setting and maybe new twists?
Combining the excitement of the zombie genre with survival elements we’ve seen in Squid Game, All of Us Are Dead is already proving to be highly anticipated among the audience. The Korean drama will also kick off Netflix’s Korean content slate for 2022 which has recently announced almost 25 new titles last week.
Ahead of its release on Netflix, we break down all the reasons why you should tune in to All of Us Are Dead.
1. Zombies are coming to a high school
All of Us Are Dead sees another zombie invasion happening in South Korea but this time, the undead is coming to a high school. The series is based on a popular webtoon, Now at Our School.
It follows a group of high school students who become trapped inside their school when a virus that turns people into a zombie spreads throughout the city. As more and more become infected, the authorities declare a state of emergency, placing the city under lockdown. The students struggle to remain alive—without phones, without food and without the grown-ups to protect them.
