All of Us Are Dead Season 2: Renewal Updates
Before discussing the renewal let’s have a look at what the series is all about. The series is based on the Naver webtoon Now at Our School by Joo Dong-geun. It focuses on a small town plagued by zombies due to a mysterious virus. A school becomes the centre of the infection. The students are left with no other option against a growing flock to stay alive. The Netflix summary of the series reads:
“A high school becomes ground zero for a zombie virus outbreak. Trapped students must fight their way out — or turn into one of the rabid infected.”
Korean industry is famous for delivering impeccable zombie stories and All of Us Are Dead is an addition to this list. The show boasts of gory action sequences that will send the chills down your spice.
Coming to the renewal, there is no official update on it. Netflix generally takes more than a month to renew any series. The renewal is based on the viewership numbers. So, we need to wait and watch.
However, the viewer’s frenzy around the series suggests that the viewership numbers would be huge. If the first season of All of Us Are Dead gets even half the numbers Squid Game achieved then the renewal is definitely on cards.
When Will ‘All of Us Are Dead’ Season 2 Be On Netflix?
Well, it depends on when Netflix officially renews the show. The first season took around 21 months to premiere after its announcement in April 2020. However, in Aug 2021, the production was suspended due to the COVID outbreak. So, we can assume a new season would take around 15 to 18 months to arrive on Netflix after its official announcement.
Considering that Netflix renews the series for the second season in the first quarter of 2022, we can expect All of Us Are Dead to release by the end of 2023.

Season one stars Yoon Chan-young as Chung-san, Park Ji-hoo as Nam On-jo, Cho Yi-hyun as Choi Nam-ra, Park Solomon as Lee Soo-hyuk, Yoo In-soo as Yoon Gwi-nam, and Lee Yoo-mi as Lee Na-yeon.

The series is based on the Korean webtoon Now at Our School. It is unknown whether directors Lee Jae-Gyu and Kim Nam-soo followed the plot of the comic strictly or have made some changes in its adaptation.
The webtoon has 131 chapters. So, the plot of the second season would depend on how much source material do the creators have to play with. If there isn’t enough material left then the writers can expand the story.
