The second season of “We’re Dead” is on its way, and we have gathered all the known details about its premiere date, synopsis, cast, and more. Korean fiction is currently hot among Netflix series. Following the success of “Squid Game,” “Hellbound,” and “Move to Heaven,” the platform has found another hit with the zombie production “We’re Dead.” Based on the popular webtoon “Now at Our School,” this series has been acclaimed as one of the best shows of 2022.
A Unique Twist on the Zombie Genre
South Korea has proven itself to be highly skilled in crafting exceptional zombie narratives, as seen in series like “Kingdom” and movies like “Train to Busan.” In “We’re Dead,” the unique twist lies in the setting—a high school where students must confront a virus outbreak that transforms their classmates into bloodthirsty cannibals.
Season 2 Premiere Date
The premiere date for the second season of “We’re Dead” has not been announced yet. However, we can assume that it will likely air in mid to late 2023, making it one of the most highly anticipated series of that year. Netflix confirmed the renewal during its “Geek Week” event, with four characters from the show revealing the exciting news.
Season 2 Synopsis (Spoilers for Season 1)
At the end of the first season of “We’re Dead,” the show’s title became almost literal—almost everyone was dead. After the initial outbreak, the city of Hyosan was quickly overrun by zombies, and most of the undead were destroyed by the Korean army’s bombing.
While most survivors had their stories resolved, the possibility of a resurgence of the outbreak remains. All it takes is one zombie to ruin everything once again. Additionally, Nam-Ra somehow managed to retain her humanity even after the infection devastated her body. As it turns out, she is just one of many hybrids who can manipulate the virus to their advantage, becoming stronger and more resistant to pain. However, the hunger for human flesh still persists, posing another threat that the new episodes may explore.
Season 2 Cast
Although most of the original cast did not survive the first season, one character who is likely to return is Choi Nam-ra, portrayed by Cho Yi-hyun. Unless, of course, the show takes a completely different storytelling approach within the same outbreak with a new cast. According to the platform’s teaser, three other actors will also return alongside Yi-hyun: Park Solomon, Park Ji-hoo, and Yoon Chan Young (Did Lee Cheong-san finally survive?). As these four cast members were the ones who announced the renewal, it is highly probable that they will all come back.
