Everything you need to know about All of Us Are Dead season 2

The cast of All of Us Are Dead.

Squid Game may get all the press, but it’s not the only hit Netflix original series coming out of South Korea. All of Us Are Dead also made a splash in 2022 when it premiered on Netflix. The series is based on a webcomic by Joo Dong-geun, and it follows a group of high school students in South Korea who struggle to survive the zombie apocalypse. And spoiler alert… not all of them do.

Netflix is still the streaming home of The Walking Dead, and yet All of Us Are Dead still managed to find an audience of its own and earn a season 2 renewal. Now, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about All of Us Are Dead season 2.

What is the series about?

Zombies! Of course, it’s also about the survivors. But zombies are always the big attraction for shows centered around zombie outbreaks. Patient Zero in this show was Lee Jin-su (Lee Min-goo), a bullied high school student who was the first human infected with the zombie virus. Jin-su’s father, Lee Byeong-chan (Kim Byung-chul), experimented on that virus, and it was unleashed on an unsuspecting world.

Classmates Nam On-jo (Park Ji-hu) and Lee Cheong-san (Yoon Chan-young) are among the main survivors of their high school, and they both harbor romantic feelings for each other. Unfortunately, they only got to share a single kiss before Cheong-san seemingly perished while fighting his rival, Yoon Gwi-nam (Yoo In-soo). Cheong-san was also bitten and infected with the zombie virus by Gwi-nam, which is why he was willing to sacrifice himself for On-jo’s sake.

Who’s returning for All of Us Are Dead season 2?

Although Cheong-san’s death seemed pretty definite in season 1, Yoon Chan-young is prominently featured in the All of Us Are Dead season 2 announcement video from 2022. This indicates that Cheong-san will return in some form. In addition to Park Ji-hu reprising her leading role as Nam On-jo, the rest of the cast includes the following performers:

  • Cho Yi-hyun as Choi Nam-ra
  • Lomon as Lee Su-hyeok
  • Ha Seung-ri as Jang Ha-ri
  • Lee Eun-saem as Park Mi-jin
  • Im Jae-hyuk as Yang Dae-su
  • Kim Bo-yoon as Seo Hyo-ryung

Additionally, actress Roh Yoon-seo has been cast in season 2 as a new character whose identity has not yet been revealed.

The first season ended with the reveal that Nam-ra overcame her infection to become a human/zombie hybrid, and she’s not the only one. This may also be the explanation for Cheong-san’s survival on the show, but we don’t have confirmation of that yet.

While speaking to AllKpop, series director Lee Jae Gyu offered these hints about where season 2 may go.

“If season 1 showed a comparison and contrast in how adults and students survive the zombie apocalypse, I want to show the comparison between the surviving human group and the zombie group in season 2,” said Lee.

When will All of Us Are Dead season 2 premiere?

Netflix has not announced a premiere date for All of Us Are Dead season 2, but it is expected to drop later in 2024. For now, we don’t even have a trailer or preview pictures to go on. But as the series gets closer to its return, you can expect to see all those things and more.

Everything you need to know about Fantastic Beasts 4
Jude Law and the cast of Fantastic Beasts: The secrets of Dumbledore gather in a cave.

The Harry Potter franchise is in rough shape. The original series of eight movies, which followed Harry's story to its conclusion, were a wild success, and also happened to feature many of the most prominent British actors alive at the time. In modern Hollywood, though, no franchise is truly dead, which is why we got the Fantastic Beasts franchise in 2016.

Helmed by David Yates, who directed the final four Harry Potter movies, and written by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, the Fantastic Beasts franchise seemed set up for success. A prequel series to the original films, they follow Newt Scamander, an offbeat British wizard, as he faces the rise of Grindelwald, the greatest dark wizard to ever live before Voldemort took that title.

Peacemaker, the unexpected Max hit that premiered in early 2022 and surprised everyone with its irreverent humor and heartwarming approach, will return for a second season. Peacemaker (John Cena) is the breakout character from James Gunn's The Suicide Squad, and the show has taken the character to the next level and effectively turned what was a D-list DC villain into a bona fide star.

Still, there have been a few tidbits about the show's status from Gunn, Cena, and others, so here's everything we know about the upcoming season of Peacemaker.

Everything we know about Wednesday season 2
Wednesday Addams with Thing on her shoulder from Wednesday.

It took just over 30 years for The Addams Family to recapture the public's imagination after the 1991 film and its 1993 sequel, Addams Family Values. Wednesday not only reinvigorated Charles Addams' signature creations, but it also became one of Netflix's most popular shows, surpassing even Stranger Things. That's why it was appropriate that The Addams Family's Christina Ricci had a part in Wednesday season 1 that allowed her to pass the torch to the current Wednesday, Jenna Ortega.

Wednesday season 2 is on the way to Netflix, and we're sharing everything we know about the upcoming season, including when it will return, what to expect, and more.
When will Wednesday season 2 be released?
2025 at the earliest. Netflix has confirmed the nearly three-year gap between seasons 1 and 2, which was pushed back because of the actors and writers strikes of 2023.
