Netflix is set to unveil an exciting new reality series that promises a fresh and thrilling take on the ever-popular zombie genre. Zombieverse, created by Park Jin-kyung and Moon Sang-don in partnership with Kakao Entertainment, will mark the streaming platform’s first reality show centered around horror and zombies.
Drawing inspiration from successful Korean scripted zombie series like Kingdom and Alive, Zombieverse delivers a realistic and immersive experience. The creative minds behind the hit Netflix original All of Us Are Dead have contributed their talents to ensure an authentic portrayal of the zombie apocalypse.
In the heart of Seoul, amidst a terrifying zombie virus outbreak, South Korean entertainers from diverse fields, including actors, comedians, rappers, and even a baseball player, will battle their way through hordes of brain-craving creatures. Facing challenging quests, they must rely on their wits and teamwork to survive, as anyone bitten by a zombie is left behind.
While the show shares some similarities with the American reality series The Colony, Zombieverse’s distinctiveness lies in its incorporation of zombies, making survival all the more challenging and suspenseful. The contestants will have to outsmart the undead during the intense quests if they want to make it out alive.
Adding to the realism, the actors portraying the zombies have undergone rigorous training from the choreographers behind Netflix’s critically acclaimed series Kingdom.
The eclectic cast of Zombieverse includes well-known personalities like South Korean actress Lee Si-young, popular entertainer Ro Hong-chul, comedian and DJ Park Na-rae, rapper and TV personality Kim Cheol/DinDin, Japanese singer Fukutomi Tsuki, South Korean baseball player Yoo Hee-kwan, TV personality Yiombi Jonathan and his sister Yiombi Patricia, urologist and YouTuber Hong Seong Woo, and YouTuber and vlogger Kim Jin-young/Dex.
With an engaging mix of talent and brains, both human and undead, Zombieverse is sure to captivate viewers and deliver an adrenaline-pumping and unforgettable experience. The series is set to debut on Netflix, and fans can expect a thrilling adventure into the heart of a simulated zombie apocalypse.
