Hellbound creator lays out plans for season 2
This next outing will be released as an animated webtoon first.
The creator of Netflix’s smash-hit South Korean series Hellbound Yeon Sang-ho has outlined his plans for a second season.
The dark fantasy drama originally began life as a two-part animated film before being adapted into an 11 minute webtoon comic last year. This is what then served as the basis for the live-action version which Sang-ho and his writing partner Choi Kyu-Seok developed for the streaming giant.
In a recent interview with Variety Sang-ho explained that because of this, the pair had decided that the next outing will first be told through an animated webtoon.
“As for whether we would want to turn that into another live-action series, that’s something that we will need further discussion on,” he continued.
“As you know, we have only just released Hellbound Season 1 and so we didn’t have any time to discuss that issue with Netflix. So I would say this is something we need further discussion on.”
Released on 19th November 2021, the six-part Hellbound is set in an alternate world where gigantic supernatural beings appear to drag humans down to hell.
It has so far enjoyed immense popularity on Netflix surging up its most-watched list effectively overnight and knocking fellow South Korean mega-hit Squid Game off the top spot.
Sang-ho only had positive things to say about working with the platform in the same interview describing the process as being “very enjoyable on my end.”
“They very much agreed to and related to my creative vision, but they also created an environment where I didn’t have to think about anything else aside from focusing on my creativity in terms of distribution or when or how to release the series,” he said.
You can stream the entire first season of Hellbound on Netflix now.
