Hellbound is currently the most-watched series on Netflix, jumping to the first position in world rankings in just 24 hours. While the six-episode series has only been out for a week, fans are already asking for details regarding season 2.

In an interview with Huffpost KR, Hellbound director Yeon Sang-ho said the sequel will follow the original model, releasing first as a webtoon, and later in video. The cartoon will release sometime in the second half of next year, and there are currently no specific plans for season 2 filming.

As the intellectual property rights for Hellbound belong to Sang-ho and his fellow cartoonist Choi Gyu-Seok, if Netflix decides not to do season 2, there is a possibility it will be done through other platforms. However, this is quite unlikely due to the show’s breakout success and Sang-ho’s satisfaction with the platform. “As a creator, Netflix is ​​a good platform. There are no restrictions that come with being introduced first in Korea, so free planning is possible. It is also a great advantage and a new experience to be able to simultaneously release and see reactions in countries of different cultures.” he said. “It was my first work with Netflix and it was successful, but if I do it again with Netflix, I won’t take a similar approach, I will do something new.”

Hellbound tells of a supernatural phenomenon in Seoul in which people are suddenly sent to hell on a predetermined date. A new religious group takes advantage of the chaos, while others try to uncover the truth behind the strange occurrences. The final episode is left on a scene hinting at what the next season may hold. Season 1 of Hellbound is now available on Netflix.

In other entertainment news, Keanu Reeves responds to rumors of joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
