Release date of Netflix’s Kingdom season 2
Netflix has spread the word in a series of tweets around the world that Zombies are back. And we realize, you aren’t running away. After spectacularly horrific, chilling season 1, you are rather after the dates of season 2 of Netflix’s Kingdom. Before you decide to eat me for keeping the premiere dates to myself, let me shout out loud and in clear words.
Netflix’s Kingdom season 2 will hit the Netflix platform on 13th March 2020.
Korea encounters Zombies before you and me!
If you still think Zombies are a contemporary phenomenon and history is resting in peace, time to recheck your facts. No, don’t go back to history books, for that will certainly leave you more unsettled. Let those real ghouls rest for now and tune into the Netflix Kingdom to find Zombies in Korean history.
Set in Korea’s Joseon period (post-Japanese invasions of Korea (1592-1598)), the kingdom’s Crown Prince Lee Chang (Ju Ji-Hoon) is embroiled in political treason. But, what’s new? Coups and treason are what medieval history is all about. Families after each other’s blood to sit on the throne.
What will you say when Zombies enter into the scene?
Prince’s father (the king) is mysteriously pronounced dead but is alive and severely afflicted with some mysterious sickness. Not even the son can visit his sick father. But Prince Lee, being “obviously” Prince, defies orders and sneaks to check on him only to be taken aback by encountering a deformed giant.
Meanwhile, southern provinces are afflicted with a mysterious plague that’s producing flesh-eating undead zombies at insurmountable speeds.
Who would he handle first?
One side there’s plotting and scheming to oust him before he even claims the throne and on the other hand, the zombies feeding on flesh, and fearing nothing, not even the Sun. The Korean Zombies are cool with the light. They only get uneasy with the warmth of the Sun. Winter is coming on season 2 of Netflix’s Kingdom and therefore zombies are there to stay.
It will be interesting to watch Lee along with physician Seo-Bi (Bae Doo-na), the enigmatic Yeong-Shin (Kim Sung-kyu), and his personal guard Moo-Young (Kim Sang-ho) fighting Zombies and addressing the sinister coup set up by mastermind Prime Minister Cho Hak-ju (Ryu Seung-ryong) and his family.
New casting, Jun Ji Hyun suggests Kingdom season 3
Popular Korean actress Jun Ji Hyun is returning to TV after 4 years with the second season of the Kingdom. There’s another news to cheer for as the agency of Jun Ji Hun has reportedly said that the actress has been approached for season 3 of Kingdom. Though season 3 is officially not announced, yet we can assume that it is not too far from happening.
The show is not just another zombie thriller in the over-crowded genre which leaves you bored to death. The Undead in Korea are giving, the already messed-up young Prince, pretty tough time and deserve your eagle attention.
