Netflix has already become extremely used to zombie content on its platform, particularly from South Korea. In recent years, some of South Korea’s most popular movies and shows have been zombie horrors. Kingdom wowed us all with its incredible size, scale and cinematography, #Live it came at the height of the pandemic just as we were all stuck inside, and we are all dead took the world by storm and was rewarded with a second season. However, we have yet to see a reality series based on the popular horror subgenre. Until now.
Coming to Netflix sometime in the near future is “Zombieverse,” an exciting new reality show that is sure to be a huge hit with subscribers.
What is it zombieverse?
Zombieverse is a reality series set in the heart of the South Korean capital, Seoul, where a group of survivors must work together to survive while searching for food, water, transportation, and shelter. Every day, the contestants are given tasks to complete in order to get the supplies they need, however if any of them get “bitten”, they must stay behind.
Park Jin Kyung’s my little tv and Moon Sang-don of Hears! First time in Korea? They are working together on the series.
Park Jin-Kyung had the following to say about the project;
I collaborated with Netflix for the first time through ‘Zombieverse’ and filming has already been completed. It’s a television project that started with a simple question: ‘How would people react if zombies appeared in the real world?’ It will be interesting to see what role the contestants play: a hero, a villain, or a bystander.
Netflix subscribers will be even more excited to learn that the art team behind we are all dead is working on the project, and all the extras hired to play the zombies are being trained by the same choreographers from Kingdom.
