Netflix reveals casting and character art for upcoming live-action series Yu Yu Hakusho.

Yu Yu Hakusho will premiere worldwide and only on Netflix in December 2023

The upcoming series is based on the legendary Japanese manga of the same name by Yoshihiro Togashi, which was originally published in Weekly Shonen Jump (published by Shueisha as Jump Comics) from 1990. The manga is considered a fan favorite and has sold over 50 million copies in Japan alone.

The manga revolves around Yusuke Urameshi, a middle school student who spends his days getting into fights and dies in an accident while trying to protect a young child. As he grapples with the fact that he’s looking down at his dead body, a woman named Botan, who calls herself the leader of the spirit world, shares the shocking truth with him: no one expected a delinquent like Yusuke to die in an act would of goodness, and there was no place for him, either in heaven or in hell. Thus, Yusuke gets a chance to be revived, and after passing his trial, he becomes a detective of the underworld. From then on, Yusuke becomes enmeshed in a mystery surrounding the human, demon, and spirit worlds.

Yusuke’s spectacular adventure is now coming to Netflix as a live-action series. “When I first heard that Yu Yu Hakusho was getting a live-action adaptation, I seriously wondered if that was even possible — but after being presented with the producer’s vision and possibilities with Netflix, mine increased expectations and I felt like I was burning with passion to bring this project to life,” reveals director Sho Tsukikawa.
