Netflix has demonstrated a powerful ability to turn local, cultural, or mostly forgotten tv shows into global success stories. The past few years have seen the success of Money Heist and Squid Game. Now the South Korean horror drama “All Of Us Are Dead” is returning to Netflix for a second season in all its undead glory. The series first launched on 28 January 2022 and within half a year, it has released the season 2 teaser. The zombie apocalypse show instantly became a fan favorite with its uncommon take on the otherwise saturated genre. The series revealed a group of students trapped within the walls of their high school which had become ground zero for the zombie outbreak. Even as they plan their escape, the speakers bellow with the despair of the words “All of us will die. There is no escape.”
