Hellbound is a supernatural horror South Korean drama released on Netflix in 2021. The show is directed by Yeon Sang-Ho and has been adapted from the popular South Korean webtoon titled ‘Hell.’ Since the end of its first season, the now engaged fans of the show are awaiting announcements of its second season. This also comes after the fact that the first season of Hellbound managed to grasp massive popularity among the subscribers of Netflix, making it a globally loved title. Here’s everything you need to know about Hellbound Season 2.
Hellbound Season 2: Does The Saga Continue?
The finale of Hellbound Season 1 left many fans in shock with its cliffhanger ending. The fans were hoping to witness the kid being murdered by the monsters, and in the end, Park Jung Ja came back to life as her ashes came together. The makers still have not completely commended the answer to how this particular narrative took place, thus making Season 2 one of the most anticipated Netflix shows.
Those who have watched the show might be well aware that the show has been brutal and hellish since its first episode. In the sixth and final episode of Season 1, we see Sohyun accepting the death of her baby as she decides to fight back with the monsters. Sohyun and his husband’s fight with the monster for their child give the neighbours an idea that the monsters can thus be fought back and even beaten. Giving them a chance to get their lives on a straight line rather than getting brutally murdered by one.
As far we can see, the storyline has not yet been completed. The webtoon on which the show is based has many more narratives that can be included in the show. Thus, the cliffhanger ending and an incomplete circle ensure that Hellbound will eventually return with a season 2 concerning the storyline.
Hellbound Season 2: Has Netflix Announced A Renewal?
Back in November, the creator of the show, Yeon Sang-ho, spilled some beans regarding a potential second season, hinting that the talks are going on between the makers and the streaming giant.
During a conversation with Variety, the ‘Train to Busan’ director said,
“Hellbound is based on the original webtoons. My partner Choi Kyu-Seok and I have decided that the story afterwards will be told first through the webtoon and, as for whether we would want to turn that into another live-action series, that’s something that we will need further discussion on. As you know, we have only just released ‘Hellbound’ Season 1, so we didn’t have any time to discuss that issue with Netflix. So I would say this is something we need further discussion on.”
The creator firmly reveals a second season is possible, though he didn’t intend to tell anything except some talks at the Netflix office.
