Netflix has confirmed that the Korean supernatural series ‘Hellbound’ will be getting a new season. The announcement was part of its Korean leg of the ‘TUDUM’ event.
The show is based on the webtoon of the same name. Yeon Sang-ho (Train to Busan) will return as director, and Choi Gyu-seok is the co-writer.
In season 1, supernatural beings began appearing and condemned people to hell. A religious group named The New Truth rose as people searched for answers to the mystery.
The official synopsis reads: “Unbelievable demonstrations of hell take place in the middle of Seoul right in front of crowds. Mysterious beings condemn individuals to be hellbound, and otherworldly beings appear exactly at the specified time to kill the condemned in a brutal burning.
“Rising above the utter chaos resulting from these inexplicable supernatural occurrences is the commanding voice of Jung Jinsu, the leader of an up-and-coming religious organization, The New Truth.
“He claims that only sinners are marked for condemnation and that these occurrences represent the divine will to make humans righteous. A group of his followers with blind faith, the Arrowhead, take into their own hands the punishment of those who go against the divine will. The world becomes a living hell.
“Min Hyejin, a lawyer, challenges Chairman Jung by claiming the demonstrations of hell to be simply supernatural occurrences. She joins forces with the few who try to protect the hellbound and return the world to the realm of humans, not gods. They go up against the chaos instigated by The New Truth.”
The first season ended on a cliffhanger with the resurrection of Park Jung-ja. The announcement clip revisits this, along with the season 2 confirmation.
