SEOUL, June 7 (Yonhap) -- Netflix's hit Korean zombie thriller "All of Us Are Dead" will return for the second season, the streamer said Tuesday.
Netflix said the new season will tell the follow-up story of a group of students who survived the zombie-hit high school.
The main cast of the first season -- Park Ji-hu, Yoon Chan-young and Cho Yi-hyun -- will reprise their roles in the second season, which is also directed by first-season helmer Lee Jae-kyoo, also known as Lee JQ, according to Netflix.
Based on a popular webtoon, "All of Us Are Dead," released in January, is set at a high school plunged into chaos due to a mysterious zombie virus.
The 12-episode zombie series became the fourth most-watched non-English TV program within its first four weeks, with a cumulative 560.8 million hours of streaming, following "Squid Game" with 1.65 billion hours, "Money Heist: Part 45" with 792.2 million hours and "Money Heist: Part 4" with 619 million hours.
