November 20, 2021

Netflix just launched its latest original Korean drama ‘Hellbound’, but has the supernatural thriller series already been confirmed for season 2?

It’s a busy weekend for many Netflix fans who may be streaming Tiger King Season 2, Arcane Act Three, and Cowboy Bebop.

However, one title that should definitely be added to your watchlist is the fantastic Korean drama, Hellbound.

The new K-drama premiered in the world yesterday, November 19, but like any Netflix release, many fans are already wrapping up the six-episode series.

So, has Hellbound been renewed for season 2 by Netflix, and when could it potentially release in the world?

The Hellbound Season 2 been confirmed?

As of this writing, Season 2 of Hellbound has not been confirmed by either Climax Studio (the production company behind the series) or Netflix.

However, fans shouldn’t be too worried about the lack of official information, the streaming giant has a habit of waiting several weeks before making any kind of announcement on renewals.

The good news is that Season 2 is definitely set up by the dramatic finale of Episode 6. When Min Hey-Jin escapes from the New Truth with the baby, it turned out that the main storyline will end with the world discovering that the decree can be given without any “original sin.”

Nonetheless, the screen goes black as we return to Park Jung-Ja’s home, the location of the first live-streaming demo of episode three. Smoke and dust fill the room again as Mrs. Park’s cremated remains begin to regenerate… she wakes up naked on the floor, seemingly back from hell.

So, Hellbound’s storyline is set to continue into a second season, but like all original Netflix titles, any renewal depends entirely on how many people watch the series.

Hellbound Season 1 Notes …

Unfortunately, Netflix does not release its official audience statistics for the original titles, making it difficult to gauge the popularity of a particular show or movie on the platform.

However, Hellbound scores well on various user-based commenting websites, including a 6.9 / 10 on IMDB, 7.5 / 10 on MyDramaList, 78% on AsianWiki, and a fantastic 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.

“I started to think about watching one episode and maybe leaving the rest for later. Instead, I ended up watching the whole series excessively. The story, the suspense and the gore are captivating and will leave you numb at times. Nonetheless, it’s a brilliant series and I can’t wait for S2. ”- User“ tezzjoseph ”via IMDB.

Favorable reviews are coming in from critics as well, with Digital Spy giving Hellbound Season 1 a solid 4/5 stars and saying there is “more ground to cover” if Netflix decides to continue production.

Similar views are echoed by Decider, who states that despite a “slow and rambling” opening, Hellbound “sets up an interesting story that could go just about anywhere.” “

So, assuming Hellbound is watched by enough homes and is renewed for Season 2, when could the Korean drama return to Netflix?

Hellbound season 2: potential release date …

As Hellbound season 2 has not been officially confirmed, a targeted release date has not been communicated by either Netflix or the showrunners. However, we can make some predictions based on the production schedule of the first installment.

The series was first announced in April 2020, and many cast members were confirmed in late July.

While the series is an adaptation of a popular Webtoon, the Netflix show takes a few liberties and adds countless scenes for additional context.

This means that the problem with predicting a potential release date for Season 2 is that we don’t know if the production team has already written a screenplay for the next chapter in Hellbound’s story.

Assuming Netflix gives the green light for season 2 and work on the potential story can begin in the next few months, fans could see Hellbound return to Netflix as early as October 2022.
