Based on the legendary webtoon The Hellbound by Yeon Sang-ho and Choi Gyu-seok, Hellbound season one created quite a stir. The second season of the critically acclaimed series was revealed recently at Tudum, the Netflix Global Fan event. Fans can look forward to Hellbound season two exploring the themes of mortality, sin, and justice with greater scale and depth.
The previous season 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 Squid Game” (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, Netflix revealed in an official statement.
Hellbound season two 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 one’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 two: All Hell Breaks Loose Again.
Hellbound S2 is being produced by Climax Studio and Wow Point. Midnight Studio was on board as the co-producer.
