Hellbound Season 2 New Updates Unveiled
Fans are screaming for a Hellbound Season 2 release date on Netflix after a fantastic first season. This series built on South Korean media’s recent popularity in the West, and it left us wanting more after its first six-episode run. Read on to find out when Hellbound episode 7 will be released.
These days, suspense plays are the new audience favourite. Suspenseful K-dramas with a critical perspective on social beings and events, as well as thrill, always manage to attract attention and make it onto people’s watchlists. Hellbound was one such drama that topped the charts.
Hellbound is based on the same-named webcomic and is set in a world where a tiny number of people get frightening visions that prophesy their deaths down to the hour. When the time comes, three demons appear and kill the person, taking their soul to Hell with them. It’s a horrifying spectacle that doesn’t stop for a second. Indeed, the first scene of the first episode reveals how the above-mentioned mechanism operates, with horrifying results.
Hellbound, helmed by Yeon Sang-ho and released on Netflix in November 2021, left viewers wanting more after season 1’s hellish cliffhanger finale. Viewers and fans of Netflix’s supernatural live-action version of the original South Korean dark fantasy webtoon series are naturally wondering as to when and if a second season will be released.
The series has yet to be renewed for a second season by Netflix, although the first season ended in such a way that future stories based in this universe are likely to be conceivable. If it happens, here’s what we’d expect.
When will the second season of Hellbound be released?
Hellbound’s debut season charmed viewers with its captivating and intriguing storyline. Given that Season 1 ended on such a dramatic cliffhanger, many fans are persuaded that Season 2 will be a sure thing. However, five months after its initial release, neither Hellbound’s creator nor Netflix appear to have confirmed a second season.
Without an official Season 2 confirmation, there is no indication on when we will see more episodes. If Netflix picks it up quickly, the second season would be released approximately a year after the first.
On November 19, 2021, the first season of Hellbound premiered on Netflix. Because that season only had six episodes, a sequel could make sense if it followed a similar course. Hellbound Season 2 is expected to premiere in late 2022, most likely in November or December.
Because the first season left a lot of mysteries unsolved, it appears that a second season was planned. Netflix, on the other hand, is inconsistent in its ordering of additional seasons. Even shows it pushed hard for second seasons, like Cowboy Bebop, are frequently cancelled if they fail. Despite the popularity of Hellbound, Netflix’s restrictions may mean that production on Season 2 has yet to begin. If that’s the case, we won’t see it until 2023 at the earliest.
Who is in the cast of Hellbound Season 2?
The cast of Netflix’s Hellbound is comprised of a broad mix of people.
Some people get obsessed with the enigmatic, otherworldly entities, while others try to weaken the cult. A second season of Hellbound would almost probably cast Jin Kyeong-hoon (Yang Ik-june), Bae Young-jae (Park Jeong-min), Song So-hyun (Won Jin-ah), Min Hye-jin (Kim Hyun-joo), and Jeong Jin-soo, among others (Yoo Ah-in). To quench the demons’ desire, there must be enough of new blood, so expect plenty of new faces in Hellbound Season 2.
What is the plot of Season 2 of Hellbound?
There are no suggestions as to what a second season might entail, but the Season 1 finale provides us a good idea of the horror show’s possible direction. In the final seconds of the season, the camera zooms in on Park Jeong-charred ja’s remains. Her death earlier in the season was utilised by the New Truth Society to scare the public into supporting their cause.
It’s an intriguing twist because it implies that monster death isn’t as permanent as previously assumed. There may be a way to resurrect mankind, which would provide humanity with the hope it requires to confront these horrible events.
The first season was centred mostly on human’s response to the new threat presented in front of them. Is it possible that we will learn more about the monsters and why they chose to wipe humanity out? Hopefully, Netflix will renew the show soon so that we can discover what else this universe has in store.
Season 1’s premise
From 2022 through 2027, Hellbound takes place in South Korea. An angelic figure appears out of nowhere to deliver predictions known as decrees that sentence specific people to Hell at some point in the future, which could be seconds or years away.The cult-like New Truth Society and the gang-like Arrowhead organisation work together to gain power by exploiting people’s fears.
Among the six episodes in the series, the first three focus on a detective investigating mysterious incidents, the leader of the New Truth religious organisation, and a conscientious attorney. With the exception of the attorney, the major characters change in episodes 4–6, which take place 5 years later and focus on a television producer and his wife dealing with the realisation that their newborn kid is bound to Hell.
Netflix has given the green light to the development of an original series based on Yeon Sang-11-minute ho’s webtoon Hellbound, which he authored and drew in 2002.
In late July, it was announced that Yoo Ah-in, Park Jeong-min, Kim Hyun-joo, Won Jin-ah, Yang Ik-jun, Kim Shin-rok, Ryu Kyung-soo, and Lee Re will appear in the series in various roles.
The series was shot at Cube Indoor Studio from August 2020 until January 2021. The ancient Chungnam Provincial Government Buildings in Sunhwa-dong, Jung-gu, and the Hannam University Missionary Village in Daedeok-gu were used as filming locations outside.  On February 25, 2021, the director and cast of Hellbound debuted the TV series at a Netflix content roadshow.
Release of Season 1
The first three episodes of the series were screened in the ‘Primetime’ section of the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2021, making it the first Korean drama to be shown there. The first three episodes were also shown at the 65th BFI London Film Festival on October 15, 2021, in the ‘Thrill’ section, and at the 26th Busan International Film Festival on October 7, 2021, in the newly constructed ‘On Screen’ area. Netflix made it available for watching on November 19, 2021.
With 67.52 million viewing hours as of November 28, 2021, Hellbound is ranked second in the Global Top 10 weekly list of the most-watched TV series (Non-English).
It earned 43.48 million viewing hours in its first three days, according to the Netflix TOP 10 website, and ranked first in the ‘Netflix international TOP 10 TV (non-English) category.’ It was first on the ‘TOP 10’ list in 12 countries and was included in the ‘TOP 10’ list in 59 nations. This is the fastest pace for a Korean series on Netflix.
It quickly surpassed another Netflix-produced Korean drama, Squid Game, as Netflix’s most popular show.
We’re hoping that the second season clarifies a lot of stuff. Bae Young-jae and Song So-hyun commit themselves in the final episode to save their baby from Judgment. This act throws into doubt the entire procedure, as well as the New Truth Society’s word. Park Jeong-ja, the single mother who was the topic of the first public Demonstration, also reappears five years after being damned to hell in her residence.
Season 2 will almost certainly see a cultural civil war as portions of society reject the New Truth Society’s ideas. Min Hye-jin is expected to play a prominent role, and Yang Ik-june, the detective, is expected to return to tell his story.
