Because we are all dead It doesn’t need a second season.

Of the hundreds of students at Hyosan High School, only a small handful survived the outbreak, such as On-jo, Su-hyeok, Dae-su, Ha-ri, Mi-jin, and Hyo-ryung. Not to mention, the vast majority of Hyosan’s population turned into zombies and were all destroyed by the Korean army’s strategic bombing. What little remains of the survivors now reside in a refugee camp while the military determines if and when Hyosan is safe enough to return.

For those who survived, their stories are mostly concluded, as each tries to find their place in the new world. And unless a new outbreak occurs, it’s extremely difficult to determine where the story goes next.

Because we are all dead needs a second season

The only character the second season could revolve around is Nam-Ra, who after being infected by Gwi-Nam did not succumb to the virus and became a mindless zombie. Instead, Nam-Ra was able to retain his humanity while also receiving the benefit of the virus that has given him greater strength, endurance, and the ability to survive injuries that would paralyze or kill a normal human.

After meeting with the other survivors of Hyosan High School, Nam-Ra revealed that there are more like her and that she is currently helping them survive. The fact that there are more human-zombie hybrids like Nam-Ra can be incredibly dangerous, especially if they can’t overcome their urges to eat and kill like Gwi-Nam and Eun-Ji.

A bite from a hybrid also does not guarantee that you will become one, as demonstrated by Gwi-Nam, who after biting Ha-Ri’s archery partner quickly succumbed to the infection and became a mindless zombie. Then, all it might take is for one hybrid or “halfbie” to give in to its hunger and a new outbreak could occur again.

Since our last update, rumors continue to circulate about the filming and release of we are all dead season 2.

There are no sources to support claims that most of the filming for the second season has taken place, and images and videos of All Us Are Dead on social media being «filmed» have also been debunked.

When is we are all dead Will season 2 come to Netflix?

Since filming won’t begin until early 2024, we’ll be incredibly lucky to see the K-drama return to Netflix before the end of 2024.

An early launch in 2025 is much more realistic.

Is season 2 not coming to Netflix in January 2024?

Sadly not.

This hasn’t stopped clickbait pages on Facebook from seeking engagement by wrongly reporting that we are all dead will return in January 2024.

The Netflix Updates Facebook page is one such page that inaccurately reports the fake release date.

We’ve had to spend time debunking other fake release dates for many Netflix Originals.
