Netflix’s Squid Game was an enormous hit for the streaming giant. With any groundbreaking phenomenon, a trend is always the follow up. It’s no surprise that Netflix is doubling down on its Korean selection, and Train to Busan director’s next epic Hellbound is a nice place to start.
Hellbound is set in a world in which Death Angels start appearing and dragging people to to hell. The phenomenon changes the word as we know it and spawns churches that believe that the Death Angels are holy creatures. It also begins a trend of people living their lives around the fact that one of these Death Angels is inevitably going to come for them. As with Squid Game there is going to be plenty of social commentary.
Hellbound is based on a Korean webtoon called “Hell” and will follow that series pretty closely from the word out of TIFF.
The six-part Hellbound series will land on Netflix to steal some souls beginning November 19.
