Parasite has won 4 Oscar awards including the best picture and has become the first foreign movie to do so, and hence fans have huge expectations from the TV show. Here is everything you need to know about Parasite HBO TV series release date, trailer, cast, plot spoilers and connection with the Korean movie.
Parasite TV Series Trailer and Release Date
Parasite HBO TV series is right now in the early stages of development but the good thing is Bong Joon Hoo has already saved the script iPad as he had plans for a six-hour film. HBO will also try to hurry with the project as Parasite movie has become a viral sensation after winning Oscars and everyone would be waiting for the English version.
It means that the show could go on the floors very soon as filming won’t take much time. Parasite TV show trailer could come out around late 2020 with the TV show premiere on HBO around mid-2021 release date slots with a weekly episode airing schedule like Game of Thrones.
Parasite HBO TV Series Cast
Mark Ruffalo is rumored to be cast as one of the main leading characters for Parasite TV series and other than that, it is too early to speculate the cast members, Bong Joon Hoo himself was telling the same after Oscars. It is kind of an indication that the Parasite HBO series will be an English translation of the Korean movie or they could change the characters and have a totally new story. As per some rumors, Mark Ruffalo could play the role of poor father, Kim Ki-taek from the original movie.

Parasite TV Series Plot Spoilers and Connection with Korean Movie
Parasite TV show is something the Korean filmmaker Boog Joon Hoo himself has planned but couldn’t make due to time limitations. There were so many ideas about the story and details for the smallest scenes, which Joon Hoo had no means to include in a two-hour movie.
It simply means that Parasite TV series can be the retelling of the same story with certain elements added to it and maybe set up in a different country. There is no way to confirm anything at the moment, and until then we will consider that HBO’s Parasite TV series is the remake of the Korean movie Parasite movie in a serialized format.
