One of the biggest and most popular shows on Netflix today is All Of Us Are Dead, which is South Korea’s latest entry to the zombie apocalypse genre. Even though the series gave us a good ending that allowed the main characters to have a satisfying finish, one of the things that stood out is the fact that not all of the zombies are gone. And this could set us up for a second season. So, when will All Of Us Are Dead season 2 get released?
As of this writing, All Of Us Are Dead has yet been renewed for a second season. Netflix is yet to give season 2 the green light for production. However, if given the green light as soon as possible, we may be able to see All Of Us Are Dead season 2 sometime during the earlier part of 2023.
It isn’t a secret that South Korea is known as the best when it comes to producing great zombie movies and shows. That said, All Of Us Are Dead is the newest addition to that collection, as it is a great series that is able to blend great acting, intriguing storyline, and familiar plots to a satisfying gorefest of zombies. However, despite its success, it is yet to be renewed by Netflix.
All Of Us Are Dead Season 2 Release Date
One of the best Netflix originals that we have in the early part of 2022 is All Of Us Are Dead, which is a great zombie series coming from South Korea, which is arguably the best at delivering zombie-related films. Of course, we saw the success of the amazing zombie film Train to Busan. And who could ever forget about Kingdom, which is also one of the best zombie series available?
All Of Us Are Dead is South Korea’s latest addition to the zombie shows on Netflix, and it is one of the best series to date, despite the fact that we are not strangers to zombie shows. It doesn’t bring a lot of original things to the table, but it was able to deliver the zombie apocalypse in a manner that is nearly perfect.
As popular as All Of Us Are Dead is, one of the things that people are wondering is whether or not there will be a season 2 of this series, given the fact that it had a finale that was somewhat open-ended. So, in that regard, will there be a second season of All Of Us Are Dead? And if there is a second season, when will it be released?
Currently, there is no update regarding the renewal status of All Of Us Are Dead because Netflix hasn’t announced that it has renewed it. There isn’t even any news from the showrunners regarding the possibility of a second season. This isn’t the same as how some of the American shows are planned to have multiple seasons before they even get renewed for a second season.
Even though All Of Us Are Dead might have an ending that opens up the possibility of a second season, the fact of the matter is that it ended well enough, such that it may or may not get a second season.
One of the things that people notice about Netflix is that it tends to renew shows that have the potential to be great even before they get released. This is what happened with Kingdom, which is one of the trailblazers in Netflix when it comes to South Korean zombie shows. And while it is different from both All Of Us Are Dead and Kingdom, The Witcher also got its season 2 renewal before season 1 was even released.
In that regard, Netflix isn’t shy about renewing shows that have the potential to garner a lot of audiences as early as possible. But it also isn’t rare for Netflix to either renew or cancel a show a few weeks or months after the release of its first season. For example, even though it has been a while since it was released, Squid Game only got its renewal on January 2022, which is four months after it premiered on Netflix.
Going back to All Of Us Are Dead, it wasn’t renewed before its release because it hasn’t been renewed at all. This means that there is a possibility that the original plan was for it to end only after one season. Then again, things might change, especially if the showrunners decide that the success of the series warrants a second season.
And if they pitch the plan to Netflix as soon as possible, there is a good chance that Netflix will be more than agreeable for a second season, considering that the first season of All Of Us Are Dead is garnering a lot of attention. In that regard, All Of Us Are Dead might follow the Squid Game route in terms of its renewal and release date window, which is yet to be confirmed.
Then again, if All Of Us Are Dead does get renewed for a second season, depending on the plans of the showrunners and the decision of Netflix, there is a good chance that we might end up seeing the series sometime early in 2023, depending on when it will be renewed. It is probably best to watch how Squid Game develops because of how there is a good chance that All Of Us Are Dead will take us much time in its production as Squid Game when it gets renewed.
All Of Us Are Dead Season 2 Trailer
As of this writing, the second season of All Of Us Are Dead is yet to have a trailer because season 2 is yet to be renewed. It would be best to wait for All Of Us Are Dead’s renewal and filming before expecting a trailer to arrive.
All Of Us Are Dead Season 2 Plot
One of the most interesting things about All Of Us Are Dead is the possible plot of its second season, if ever season 2 does happen when Netflix renews the series. And the reason why season 2’s plot is going to be interesting is the fact that season 1 had a finale that can be somewhat open-ended.
In season 1, we saw that the entire city of Hyosan was bombed in the martial law leader’s desperate attempt to destroy all of the zombies and minimize the chances of the infection from spreading out to the neighboring cities. However, the main cast of students was able to successfully escape the city before the bombs landed.
While the main cast had to struggle their way to the quarantine camps and ended up losing a few friends along the way, they still managed to make it out of the zombie-infested areas and into the quarantine camps.
The survivors, namely On-jo, Su-hyeok, Dae-su, Ha-ri, Mi-jin, and Hyo-ryung, reunited four months later after spending the entire time in the quarantine facility. They decided to go back to the rooftop of their school because On-jo saw that there was light on the rooftop.
When the group of survivors met on the rooftop, they were surprised to see that Nam-ra, their class president was still alive as a “hambie” or half-zombie. She reveals that there are more people just like her and that she is helping them out, considering that they cannot go back to regular human civilization due to the possibility that they will be killed on sight.
In that regard, she leaves the group and goes out as a loner once again after spending time with her friends for the final time. Nam-ra, prior to the events, was a loner. The zombie apocalypse made her feel a part of a social group but is now forced to go on the run due to her nature as a hambie.
This all leads to the question of whether or not All Of Us Are Dead does indeed need a second season. The ending seems to indicate that the showrunners wrote the series to give us two possibilities. Of course, the first possibility is for the show to end right then and there. But the second possibility is in relation to Nam-ra’s story.
The survivors already have stories that were wrapped up when the first season of All Of Us Are Dead ended. It would be somewhat pointless to introduce a second season that still features some of the survivors. That would be stretching their stories far more than the writers should.
As such, if there is a second season, it is possible that the focus will be Nam-ra, who we mentioned is looking for survivors with a nature that is similar to hers. The second season might dwell on the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse and the bombing of the city. And due to the fact that there are other hambie survivors out there, the possibility of an outbreak is still very much possible, considering that a hambie’s bite can still produce mindless zombies.
All Of Us Are Dead Season 2 Cast
Due to the fact that there hasn’t been anything confirmed about All Of Us Are Dead’s second season, the cast is yet to be confirmed as well. However, if we were to speculate, the possibility is that Nam-ra, portrayed by Nam Ji-hyun, will be the only one that’s returning to the series.
It can still be possible for the other surviving members of the cast to return in season 2, depending on how the writers include them. However, we are leaning to the possibility of an entirely new cast to focus around Nam-ra’s story if it does indeed get renewed for a second season.
Will There Be All Of Us Are Dead Season 3?
As of this writing, we have no news regarding the possibility of season 3 because season 2’s status is still up in the air. The possibility of All Of Us Are Dead happening will depend entirely on the events of the second season, if there is going to be a second season at all.
