The series is based on the popular Korean webtoon Now at Our School by Joo Dong-geun. Season 1 of the show revolves around the adventures and life of a number of students from Hyosan High School who find themselves at the epicentre of a zombie apocalypse after a science experiment went wrong.

Exiled from the outer world, the students are left to protect themselves and deal with interpersonal issues as the government strives to prevent the further spread of the zombie virus.

The 12-part season ends on a major cliffhanger as six survivors are rescued and quarantined, while class president Choi Nam-ra (Cho Yi-hyun) turns into a half-zombie.

All Of US Are Dead also became one of the top 10 highest-watched non-English series across 91 countries, following the major success of Squid Game and Hellbound. As the dead are rising again, the second season is on its way to keep the horror fever alive.
