The live-action adaptation of the manga Parasite by Hitoshi Iwaaki has received its first preview – we tell you everything you need to know about it.

Parasite caused a sensation when it was published, and even more so with the release of the anime, since renamed Parasite: The Maxim. The series is clearly immersed in the horror genre, having fun with distorted bodies and constant paranoia.

The 24-episode animated series follows the adventures of Shinichi, a teenager who narrowly avoids having his brain parasitized by a deadly alien: unable to pass through his ears, the creature is forced to enter the young man's body via her hand.

Cohabitation therefore begins, both beings still perfectly conscious. A very strong bond then unites them: the parasite needs to keep Shinichi alive, it will help him to defend himself against his fellow aliens.

Although inspired by the work of Hitoshi Iwaaki, Parasyte: The Gray therefore has an entirely new history. It will be a new story, with new characters, and will be one of Netflix's K-dramas for the year 2024. And to direct all of this, it is director Yeon Sang-ho who has stepped up the sleeves, after offering the public ambitious projects like Hellbound Or Last train to Busan.

Parasyte: The Gray will be released on Netflix, but no precise release date has yet been officially given by the streaming platform to date.
