Editor’s note: Some spoilers for All of Us Are Dead season one follow, but we’ve tried to keep them vague for those who haven’t watched yet.
Netflix is still the leading premium streaming service, with over 200 million worldwide subscribers. It offers thousands of movies and TV shows to binge watch, including its always growing list of original films and series, including Stranger Things, The Witcher, Bridgerton, and many more.
All of Us Are Dead recap: What happened in season 1?
Based on the Korean webtoon comic of the same name by Joo Dong-geun, All of Us Are Dead tells the story of a group of teenagers trying to survive a zombie apocalypse when their school becomes ground zero for an outbreak.
Students had to work together to fight off the zombie plague, often succumbing to the usual hierarchies that develop when people have to work together to survive. As the city of Hyosan was overrun, the high schoolers did their best with what they had.

In the end, the threat was mostly neutralized, but with a lot of the characters now dead. Still, there was a bit of wiggle room for the story to continue.
So, will a few zombies have made it out, ready to infect the population? Are we going to meet more survivors fighting for their lives?
How many episodes of All of Us Are Dead are there?
The first season of All of Us Are Dead was told across 12 episodes.
Each episode was between 53 and 70 minutes long.
Is All of Us Are Dead good?
With a Rotten Tomatoes critics score of 83%, All of Us Are Dead was a critical hit for Netflix.
It did have its detractors too, even if the majority liked it. Meagan Navarro at Bloody Disgusting concluded that the first season “ultimately bites off more than it can chew in themes, characters, and ambition.”
According to the streamer, it also rose to the number one spot among viewers in its first three days on the service, becoming a global smash hit like previous Korean Netflix original Squid Game.
Will there be an All of Us Are Dead season 2?
Netflix has not yet announced plans to renew All of Us Are Dead.
The webtoon wrapped up, and the show covered its narrative beats already, so it’s unclear whether the series has anywhere to go, but that hasn’t stopped other series from being renewed in the past. Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale has developed beyond its source material, for example.
Furthermore, All of Us Are Dead director Lee Jae-kyoo told The Korean Herald that he hopes to make a second season and left the first season’s ending ambiguous in the hopes of continuing on.
The popularity of season one could easily lead to a second-season renewal, but we’ve simply gotten no confirmation one way or another yet.
When did All of Us Are Dead premiere?
All of Us Are Dead premiered on January 28, 2022.
While the series is a Korean original, it launched globally on Netflix, allowing it to grow in popularity around the world via word-of-mouth.
We still don’t know if or when a second season might launch.
How can I watch All of Us Are Dead?
You can watch All of Us Are Dead exclusively on Netflix.
If we get a second season of All of Us Are Dead, it will likely also be available exclusively on the global streamer.
While we don’t have any definitive answers yet, we’ll be sure to let you know if Netflix announces a second season of All of Us Are Dead.
Until then, you can check out season one now.
