Train to Busan creator Yeon Sang Ho is working on his third Original Series for Netflix in the upcoming zombie horror k-drama Family cemetery. We’re tracking everything you need to know about Family Gravesite’s first season, including the plot, cast news, production updates, and Netflix release date.

Family cemetery is an upcoming South Korean Netflix Original horror series written and directed by Yeon Sang Ho, the creator of Hell bound and the Train to Busan franchisee.

What is the plot of? Family cemetery?

The plot details for Family cemetery are extremely limited, and we only have a small description of Han Cinema:

A work depicting villagers turning into zombies with unknown symptoms.

What kind of zombies we’ll see in the k-drama is yet to be revealed. We fully expect to see the extremely fast flesh-eating ghosts as the director of the series is Yeon Sang Ho, the writer and director of the beloved Train to Busan.

Is Family cemetery a part of the Train to Busan franchise?

By re-pairing zombies and Yeon Sang Ho, we can all be forgiven for assuming Family cemetery can be part of the Train to Busan franchisee.

Nothing has been confirmed so far. However, from a marketing perspective, if the show were advertised by Netflix as a spin-off or prequel to Train to Busanit would generate a significant amount of interest.
