An official release date has not yet been confirmed, though, so we'll keep this page updated with all the latest information.

The series was renewed for season 2 in June 2022, with Netflix confirming: "Get ready to outrun even more Gen Z zombies because All of Us Are Dead is crawling back for Season 2."

The announcement was also accompanied by a teaser trailer.

We're expecting that the following cast members will return:

  • Yoon Chan-young as Lee Cheong-san

Speaking to NCB News, Cho Yi-hyun, who plays Nam-ra, attributed the first series' success to its relatable characters.

“Students are not children but not yet adults either. I’m like that. I’m neither human nor a monster," she explained.

“Everyone faces an identity crisis at one point in their life. As a teenager, I also felt like an adult but not yet an adult. I went through stages like that. In those aspects, I related to Nam-ra,” she said.

What the plot of All of Us Are Dead season 2 be?

All of Us Are Dead is based on a South Korean digital comic of the same name, with the initial batch of 12 episodes adapting the source material in full.

A second season renewal means that even die-hard fans will be in uncharted territory, with the show's writers having to craft an original direction to take the remaining characters.

"The students of Hyosan High School may have survived their first zombie outbreak, but the nightmare is far from over," the official season 2 Netflix description reads.

Director Lee Jae-kyoo previously told The Korea Herald of season 2: “Many directions, settings, and scenes were intentionally produced to expand the story into an additional season, including the introduction of the new races of zombies – immune and immortal.

“If the first season can be seen as having presented humanity‘s survival, the next season can talk about the survival of zombies.”

Of course, season 1 ended with the bombing of Hyosan and the apparent deaths of Cheong-san and Gwi-nam. The surviving students made it to the quarantine but it's clear the trouble is far from over.

Meanwhile, Nam-ra is now half-human, half-zombie, so only time will tell as to how that will pan out.

Something fans loved about season 1 was the romance element – so we'd guess we'll see more of that in season 2 too.

Sharing some behind-the-scenes details, the actors revealed it took 17 takes to film a kiss scene in season 1 – so clearly they're dedicated to getting it right!

Cho said: “I felt really sorry for Lomon. Because I had my eyes closed when I was leaning in [for the kiss], so I couldn’t find where his lips were.

“I kept saying, ‘Lomon, I’m really sorry. Can we try it just one more time? I’m really sorry.’ But Lomon was like, ‘Personally, I’m happy to keep going’," she added, earning laughter from the rest of the cast.

Is there an All of Us Are Dead season 2 trailer?

It's far to early to expect a trailer, given that filming on season 2 is yet to kick off.
