Netflix continues its commitment to providing the best horror programming for subscribers with the upcoming Korean series, All of Us Are Dead.

Last year’s Fear Street trilogy made the streamer the talk of the Internet as viewers tuned in every Friday over the summer to see what would happen next in Shadyside. Now, it’s All of Us Are Dead‘s turn to pull focus as horror fans are dropped into a zombie thriller.

Set in a high school, this series follows a group of students who find themselves trapped as a virus takes over the city and turns their classmates into threats. It’s the kind of premise that promises a lot of blood and gore as the teens fight their way to safety and try to remain a part of the living as they hope to be rescued.

All of Us Are Dead premieres Jan. 28 and consists of 12 episodes. While it’s not likely that anything will top Squid Game, Korean dramas have been a major draw for Netflix. It stands to reason that this teen horror will bring more eyes to the streamer.

Here’s more on the series!
