What is the new world order where zombies and hambies have become a part of society? 

All of Us Are Dead Season 2 returns. The main question is when? 

Taking a thorough discourse from the mainstream zombie series and movies that we have come across, ‘All of Us Are Dead’ is a debunked story. Throughout Season 1, we are reminded that the morality roles in society are not a black-and-white affair. The lines are blurred. It is all about who’s in power and how they decide to use it.

Fans have been questioning if it is a part of the summer lineup or not because the show encapsulated the essence of being a hit summer binge! If you are wondering the same thing about the potential release date, then we can assure you that you have reached the right place to get all the details as there is no more time left to wait as the journey into uncharted territory will return for another season, which is expected to soar higher than ever before!

Our desperate hopes for a Season renewal were met by Netflix when it made an official announcement of its comeback on June 6, 2022.

Check out the announcement video here:

Yes! We were all super-hyped to hear a renewal of Season 2 on 6th June 2022 by Netflix, although it was pretty evident. Ever since the release of the series in January 2022, fans have been hooked on this apocalyptic Korean drama, so renewing it for another Season only seemed logical.

So, it is clear that All of Us Are Dead Season 2 is not canceled.

While there is no official announcement on the same, Director Lee Jal Q spoke to Korea Herald, saying that the filming for Season 2 has not begun. This leaves us in a bit of a rut because we were hoping Season 2 would air by Fall 2023. On top of that, the recent WGA strike has also added to the uncertainty surrounding its release. This stems from a recent meeting of SAG-AFTRA and WGA with the production houses where no negotiations were met, and it catapulted the unions into further protest. We cannot expect the strike to dwindle before October; hence, the arrival of the second season at the moment seems bleak.

If and only if the strike subsides and filming begins within the next two months, we can expect All of Us Are Dead Season 2 to arrive by the first half of 2024. We may be heading for a late 2024 release.

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 amid a battleground, or they will become infected.”

*Spoiler Alert*

According to recent reports, it appears like the show’s director wants to concentrate more on the zombies anyway, which is exactly what the fans expect to see in the new season! Before All of Us Are Dead was renewed for a second season back on June 6, 2022, director Lee Jae-kyoo mentioned in an interview with The Korea Herald that he wanted to create a second season of this zombie series. Take a look at the quote below to understand what the director explained:

“Many directions, settings, and scenes were intentionally produced to expand the story into an additional season, including the introduction of the new race of zombies – immune and immortal,” director Lee Jae-kyoo told The Korean Herald. Further adding, “If the first season can be seen as having presented humanity’s survival, the next season can talk about the survival of the zombies. I hope to present viewers with another season.

All of Us Are Dead Season 2 Plot: Fan Theories

Will there be another zombie outbreak in All of Us Are Dead Season 2?

All of Us Are Dead Season 2

Although the government could successfully contain the zombie apocalypse to Hyosan, Season 1 never showed us a complete suppression of the same. We know for sure that there are quite a few zombies who did not perish in the fire on the rooftop.
In correspondence, we can expect another outbreak to take place next season.

It is worth mentioning that according to the webtoon Naver (upon which the series is based), the virus is not just contained to Korea, it spreads overseas.
We can expect an interesting take on this theory whereby one infected zombie breaks out of Hyosan and renders another outbreak, preferably within Korea. Otherwise, it might turn into a whole world-order series.

What is Jonus Virus?

This fundamental question surrounding the Jonus virus was not made clear through Season 1. All we know is that the science teacher of Hyosan High School invented it to create a stronger version of his son to enable him to fight off the bullies. However, he miscalculated the repercussions, and a one-minute mistake changed the lives of the people of Hyosan forever. In a way, he sacrificed humanity for his own selfish needs.

In the tapes that he left behind about the Jonus virus, he extracted testosterone and enhanced it to create superhumans whom no one could defeat. All this so that his son could fight back against bullies in high school! Talk about a parent’s determination to better their child.

He also said that the virus adapts and evolves itself and creates new strains (doesn’t it sound similar to a pandemic virus we recently faced?) when it detects an antibody, thereby destroying the core function of the antibodies (to destroy the virus).

We also discovered that a sound wave frequency of 24KHz affected them, and this very method was used to lure them onto the rooftop of the school and bomb them all together.

We also know that there is no cure for the virus other than death. In an episode, Mr. Lee says.
” A treatment or a vaccine is impossible.
There is only one solution.

When the creator of a deadly virus states this, it is likely that there is no hope. Right? Right?! WRONG! Where there is a will there is a way.

Since we have not been let on much about the virus, we don’t know what the cure could be. But that does not mean they will stop trying. This is an avenue we can expect Season 2 to explore in detail.

Is Mr. Lee a Hybrid?

all of us are dead lee

This is a new type of zombie who is definitely infected by the virus, but after interacting with the human’s antibodies, turn them into half zombies or ‘hambies.’ That’s definitely a noteworthy hashtag!

They are seen as different from the normal zombies in relation to their demeanor, which is calmer and not disheveled and directionless like the others. This can prove to be a positive attribute (in the case of Nam-Ra) or a ghastly fate (in the case of our antagonist Gwi Nam).

When Mr. Lee was a bit, it was a scene to relive. He walked calmly ahead, facing the screen against a contrasting backdrop of chaotic, rumpled zombies.

In Season 2, we can either expect him to rile up the zombies against humanity, or we can watch him help the hybrids control the catastrophe.

What happened to Nam-ra?

Oh, the final scene with Nam-Ra made us reach for the tissues. Nam-Ra turned out to be a Hamby initially and decided to part ways with her friends and stay back in Hyosan. This is because although she was calm and composed, the insatiable hunger for human flesh almost drove her to feed on her friends.

In the final scene, she has a reunion with her friends ( the remaining six who are still human): Su-hyeok, On-jo, Dae-su, Hyo-ryung, Mi-jin, and Ha-ri. Here, she is seen as extremely composed and thriving, which means she has found a way out to co-exist as a hybrid. She said that she had to stay back and protect those like her from the government won’t think twice before blowing them up.

In a way, Nam-Ra turned out to be the expected end result of the experiment and an ideal personality of what Mr. Lee expected of his son when he created the virus for him.

We cannot wait to watch Nam-Ra take the lead next season and embody the ‘Hamby Hero’ we never expected! She might even make for a new superhero.

Is Lee Cheong San still alive in All of Us Are Dead Season 2?

Now, is this a speculation we can only wait for Season 2 to cover? Last, we saw Cheong San. He perished in the fire with Gwi-Nam. However, in the pile of ash, what we can see are burnt bodies, and one of them looks like that of Cheong San.

If he does return in the next season, we can also expect the unkillable Nemesis Gwi-Nam to return with him.

Who are the cast members of All of Us Are Dead season 2?

Currently, Netflix has not confirmed who will return in All of Us Are Dead season 2. Be that as it may, we expect On-jo (Park Ji-hu), Su-hyeok (Lomon), Hyo-ryeong (Kim Bo-yoon), Dae-su (Im Jae-hyuk), Ha-ri (Ha Seung-ri), and Mi-jin (Lee Eun-saem) to be back in the second season as well. In addition to these names, we also expect Cho Yi-hyun to reprise her role as Nam-ra. Hopefully, if Cheong-san (Yoon Chan-young) survived the bombing, he would also be back in the second season. Besides these returning cast members, we expect some new cast additions, too.

In conversation with Soompi, Yoon discussed the fate of his character, explaining, “I was actually asked about whether Cheong San died or not in another interview recently. To be honest, I don’t know. I haven’t heard about what happens next, and nothing has been decided yet. Personally, I’d like to live. I’d like to be able to say things that I didn’t get to say.”
