What is the need for All of Us Are Dead Season 2?

Unlike the plethora of fans who are deeply anticipating a second season, some critics find there is no real need for producing All of Us Are Dead Season 2. That’s because in season 1 only a few students survive Hyosan High school while a majority of people were turned into zombies and they in turn were strategically bombed by the Korean military. These few survivors are now living in a refugee camp, waiting for the military’s cue to return home safely. Unless the new season begins with a new outbreak.

Or the season magnifies on Nam-Ra, who interestingly did not succumb to the virus even after being infected by it. She was not only able to stay human but also gain new strength and endurance after being infected by the virus.

The new season could possibly focus more on zombie hybrids like Nam-Ra, with questionable identities that can counteract anytime in the series.

No matter what the storyline is, we are certain All of Us Are Dead Season 2 will be equally gripping and thrilling as its predecessor. Keep checking this space for more updates.
