Black Summer Season 2 Release Date
On November 11, 2019, there has been an official announcement by Netflix that Black Summer season 2 will return. However, it is one of the many productions that are currently on hold. This is due to the global coronavirus pandemic situation. Everything began smoothly until the coronavirus intervened.
The shooting for Black Summer season 2 began early this year. However, it was in March 2020, that the news of the filming being disrupted came out. There was a postpone in the production for two weeks, and we were hopeful that it restart in April. However, due to the coronavirus situation, there was a shift in production until August 2020. There is no confirmation yet about the release date, but I hope it will be out soon.
The principal cast members from season 1 will return. This includes Jamie King coming back as Rose. She will also be the executive producer for season 2. We will also see Justin Chu Cary reprising the role of Spears and Christian coming back as Kyungsun. The only showrunner John Hyams will also be returning.
Jamie King took to Twitter, saying, “So happy to announce Black Summer season 2. I am also proud and excited to star and produce the series. I work with the most incredible artists and human beings”.
Black Summer Season 2 Plot
Season 2 will take off pretty much from where season 1 ends. We saw Rose killing Valez in the finale episode of season 1. We also saw Rose uniting with her daughter, finally giving us a moment of happiness. Out of the survivors, we had Spears, Sun, and Rose. The story of season 2 will somewhat revolve around refugees and survival. After running for their life from zombies, we might see them coming up with an utterly ill society. Nobody has proper immunity, and there is a lot of hidden symbolism.
