Hellbound Season 2: Release Date, Cast And Trailer

Hellbound Season 2: Release Date, Cast And Trailer

When will Hellbound season 2 be released?



By Gabriella Ferlita

It snatched the number one streaming spot on Netflix from Squid Game, and the streaming giant's newest South Korean horror show Hellbound may also be set for a second season.

While Netflix hasn't yet officially renewed Hellbound, the first season ended on such a painstaking cliffhanger that will surely lend its hand to a continuation of the storyline.

Hellbound has quickly gained a reputation for its graphic gore and horror, which was previously a hit with fans of Squid Game.

Now, Hellbound has surpassed Squid Game in more than 80 countries within just 24 hours of its release, becoming the most streamed Netflix show globally on November 20 and still retaining the top spot today.

If season two was on the cards, here's everything we'd expect.

What Is Hellbound About?

Warning - Season 1 spoilers

Directed by Train to Busan's Yeon Sang-ho, the series, set in a dystopian world, follows a group of demons who hunt down sinners and send them to hell.

The horror series sees the citizens informed of the date and time of their death before being hunted down by giant hairy monsters who deliver their unfortunate fates.

The terrifying monsters then incinerate their victims and send them to hell, triggering an outbreak of public hysteria and religious fanaticism.

At the end of season 1, which was released on Netflix on 19 November 2021, we saw the burnt remains of Park Jeong-ja (Kim Shin-rok) become suddenly reanimated.

She died previously in the series, with her death being broadcasted by the New Truth Society to instil fear into the world so that they'd follow their cause.

What will happen in Season 2 of Hellbound?

Without a trailer or confirmation from Netflix, there's no concrete evidence of what's in store for the next series, but it's likely that season 2 would no doubt answer questions from the hellish season 1 finale.

Park Jeong-ja's resurrection in the finale begs the question that fans want answers to in season 2 - is death from the monsters really permanent?

It also suggests there may be a way that people can be brought back to life, which could give the citizens the strength to fight against these monsters.

It's also possible that we'll find out more about the creatures themselves and why dooming humanity is in their interest.

When is the Season 2 Hellbound release date?

Netflix hasn't officially confirmed Season 2 of Hellbound, but it's predicted that the streaming service will pick it up in the near future due to the success of the first season.

The next season is estimated to be released in winter 2022, around November or December in the same way that the first series was released.

What does the cast look like for Hellbound Season 2?

There's sure to be a broad-ranging cast of characters for Netflix's Hellbound. A second season of the show would likely enlist the help of 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 (Yoo Ah-in).

It's also predicted there will be plenty of fresh meat to satisfy the cravings of the demons, so we're expecting many new characters for Hellbound Season 2, too.

Season 2 Hellbound trailer:

As Season 1 has only just recently dropped on the streaming giant and Netflix has yet to confirm season 2, it's too early for a trailer yet.

Keep checking back though, as we'll drop one right here as soon as it's released.
