TL;DR A new zombie thriller series from Korea is coming to Netflix Canada on January 25th!

Although official critics' reviews won't be available until after the show actually airs, the buzz surrounding this series has gotten progressively louder since the release of the official trailer.

As you can see in the trailer below, this isn't your regular zombie apocalypse movie set in the present day. Characterized by elaborate costumes and stunning sets, this is a zombie-themed series but with a highly stylized and period piece twist.

The combination of the zombie thriller and political drama genres, medieval setting, and (if the trailer is any indication) gorgeous visuals make this perhaps the most daring Netflix original series in a while.

The series synopsis gives us a sneakpeak at the story. In a kingdom that is "defeated by corruption and famine," a rumor begins to spread about a strange condition that makes people immune to death and hungry for the taste of human flesh. The crowned prince of the kingdom sets out to unveil the evil scheme and save his kingdom and people.

Don't let the period-piece vibe of this series fool you, it looks scary and most definitely intense.
