Broad is the way that leads to Hell.

Hellbound–the South Korean horror/fantasy Netflix series–has been renewed for a second season, according to a report on Screen Rant. Check out the teaser for Season 2 on this page.

The show–based on director Yeon Sang-ho’s popular webtoon–premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and kicked off its first season on Netflix last November. Riding positive reviews, Hellbound quickly became the world’s most-watched Netflix series.

The series–starring Yoo Ah-in, Kim Hyun-joo and Park Jeong-min–is set in the near future when an “otherworldly being (known as an angel) materializes and delivers prophecies (called decrees) that condemn certain people to Hell at a specific future time,” according to the synopsis.

And, to ensure these trips to the netherworld, “three supernatural monsters appear to maul and incinerate the person’s body in a spectacular show of force.”

Additionally, two organizations–the cult-like New Truth Society and the gang-like Arrowhead group–“gain power by playing on people’s fears.”

No debut date has yet been announced for Season 2, so keep reading Horror News Network for further updates on Hellbound on Netflix.
