Netflix Green Lights Second Season for Kingdom Before Drama Even Airs

The confidence is high and the pockets are deep with this one. Netflix has announced a second season for original content K-drama Kingdom despite the fact that the drama just finished filming and hasn’t even aired yet. Score for the team of Joo Ji Hoon, Bae Doo Na, and Ryu Seung Ryong, and especially for screenwriter Kim Eun Hee who wrote Signal, Three Days, Sign, and Phantom. The K-drama is based on a manhwa about a Joseon era prince investigating an outbreak that causes people to become violent zombies, and yes this sounds similar to the upcoming K-movie Rampant with Hyun Bin. I’m excited to see a gritty and dangerous sounding K-drama and also to see how Netflix fares in their continued expansion into K-ent programming.

Netflix Green Lights Second Season for Kingdom Before Drama Even Airs — 6 Comments

  1. So excited for this!!! It has all the elements that I like; stellar cast, stellar screenwriter, zombies, saeguk era. What’s not to like really??

  2. And maybe that’s why our JJH did not take the offer of Prometheus! Kingdom must be amazing to be offered a second season without the first being screened. I’m hanging out for it so yayurr! Netflix NZ better have this locked in.

      • Gotta love the fact that it’s a K drama with K cast and it’s a risk that Netflix are prepared to take with season 2. Bae Doona alone has a presence from Sense8 so it’s quite exciting!

  3. I was waiting for this one! I don’t like watching tv series, but I heard that it’s only 6 episodes for the first season. I think I can handle that.
