Kingdom Season 2 Launching on Netflix March 13

-

Netflix announced today that Kingdom Season 2 is set to premiere globally on the streaming service on March 13. Netflix has also provided us with the new Kingdom Season 2 poster, which you can view below.

An epidemic turns Joseon into hell on earth amid the ravages left by the ever-growing greed of the Cho family. In the second season of the Korean original series, Crown Prince Lee Chang continues his desperate, bloody struggle, with no one he can trust to help him.

The official poster depicts the main characters on a rooftop, fleeing from a flock of zombies who are growing exponentially in number. This scene recalls the shocking finale of season 1 – an imminent onslaught by an army of zombies who, despite the break of dawn, do not fall back to sleep in the daytime as they had before.

The accompanying motion key art, which you can watch below, depicts the main characters: Crown Prince Lee Chang, Cho Hak-ju, Seo-bi, Mu-yeong, Yeong-sin, Beom-pal, and the Queen.

The tagline “Blood Will Spill” foreshadows the increasing terror experienced by those running for their lives and running out of options. Each character’s face is marked by hopeless desperation, but they are all determined to survive the agonizing struggle that awaits them in Kingdom Season 2.

Joining the cast this season is the head of the Royal Commandery Division, Min Chi-rok. Lee Chang is tougher now and more determined, as he fights to protect his people from the growing legions of zombies.

Cho Hak-ju continues to be power-hungry, while Seo-bi is on the brink of a breakthrough with the resurrection plant. Mu-yeong is still steadfastly looking after Chang, and Yeong-sin is fiercer than ever.

Not to be forgotten are the terror-stricken Beom-pal and the Queen with her perpetual deadpan expression. Season 2 ramps up the tension with the introduction of Min Chi-rok, who investigates a suspicious murder in Hanyang.

Kingdom Season 2 continues to captivate with the story of Lee Chang’s journey back to Hanyang in search of the roots of the plague and the bloody struggle instigated by a secret plot at the heart of power in Joseon-era Korea.

The first season of Kingdom was described as follows: “In a kingdom defeated by corruption and famine, a mysterious rumor of the king’s death spreads, as does a strange plague that renders the infected immune to death and hungry for flesh. The crown prince, fallen victim to a conspiracy, sets out on a journey to unveil the evil scheme and save his people.”
