The series is an eight-part coming-of-age horror story set at a high school that becomes ground zero for a zombie virus outbreak.

Some unfortunate students become trapped in the school and must fight their way out, or risk turning into a one of the zombies.

Based on the popular webtoon Now At Our School created by Joo Dong-geun, the live-action series adaption was ordered all the way back in April 2020.

The webtoon lasted for 130 episodes between 2009 and 2011 and proved to be a hit across Asia, particularly South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand and Taiwan.

The live-action series was written by Chung Sung-il and directed by Lee JQ and Kim Nam-su. 

The cast includes Yoon Chan-young, Cho Yi-hyun, Lee Yoo-Mi, Park Ji-hu, Lomon, Yoo In-soo, Lim Jae-hyeok

Netflix has debuted lots of South Korean dramas over the past year, including My Name, Extracurricular and Hellbound.

Squid Game became a huge hit for the streaming service, and the second season was officially confirmed this month.

Netflix co-CEO hinted that the Squid Game universe "has just begun" during Netflix's fourth-quarter earnings call last week Thursday.

Squid Game has reached more than 142 million households and has been streamed for more than 1.6 billion hours.

Series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has already revealed possible plots for the next instalment.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter he explained there were other stories 'that had not been addressed' yet.

"There are some other stories in the series that have not been addressed. For example, the story of the police officer and the story of his brother, The Front Man," he explained.

"I could also go into the story of that recruiter in the suit who plays the game of ddakji with Gi-hun and gives him the card in the first episode.

"... I’ll just say there are a lot of possibilities out there for season 2 storylines."

We can't wait!

Until then, All of Us Are Dead debuts on Friday 28th January.
