Despite months of anticipation since the second season’s renewal, the network has yet to reveal and confirm the official release date for All of Us Are Dead Season 2.

All of Us Are Dead Season 2: What to expect?
The series is expected to expand on the basic premise, which is as follows: “A local high school is overrun with zombies as a result of a failed science experiment, and the trapped students struggle to survive.” “With no food or water and communication cut off by the government, they must use the school’s equipment to protect themselves in the midst of a battleground, or they will become infected.”
It is also planned to continue the story from the last episode of the first season. In the 12th episode, the viewers got to see that, after escaping the students arrive in an abandoned neighborhood. Nam-ra detects the presence of zombies. The students try to flee the area, but Dae-su’s leg is injured, forcing them to stay and fight the zombies. Nam-ra kills Woo-jin after he is bitten while saving his sister.
During the escape, Nam-ra becomes increasingly tempted to eat her friends, with voices in her head urging her to do so, and she nearly bites On-jo. Nam-ra abandons the group and disappears into the neighborhood, driven by remorse and the desire not to hurt her friends. Su-hyeok, On-jo, Dae-su, Hyo-ryung, Mi-jin, and Ha-ri, the remaining six student survivors, reach an abandoned railway, where the military finally rescues them. Four months later, the government lifts martial law in Hyosan, but residents remain quarantined.
Six Hyosan High students escape the camp and return to the ruins of their school. Nam-ra, who appears to be in good health despite being a half-zombie, meets them. Nam-ra says there are a few others like her who escaped from the school and that she will return and jumps from the rooftop, leaving the others staring. In a mid-credits scene, government officials are seen transporting Byeong-wife chan’s and son’s bodies to another location.
According to Deadline, “There has been skyrocketing interest in Korean dramas in the wake of Squid Game’s phenomenal success. The zombie YA series rose to No. 1 on its seventh day of release on Netflix’s U.S. daily Top 10 list, riding on the coattails of Squid Game, which hit the top spot on Day 4 of its release. After its premiere, All of Us Are Dead shot straight into the top 10 most-watched non-English TV series in 91 countries and stayed there for two consecutive weeks. It also drew 361 million viewing hours in its first 10 days.”
The main cast members who are expected to reprise their roles include Park Ji-hu, Yoon Chan-young, Cho Yi-hyun, Lomon, Yoo In-soo, Lim Jae-hyeok, and Lee You-mi. On the other hand, Lee JQ and Kim Nam-su are the creators and directors; Lee JQ is the showrunner, and Chun Sung-il is the writer of the show.
