Black Summer is a Netflix Original television series and belongs to the Apocalyptic fiction/action genre. It is created by John Hyams and Karl Schaefer.
The first season consisted of 8 episodes and was released on Netflix on April 11, 2019. The series is produced by The Asylum, the same production house behind Z Nation, and is written and directed primarily by Hyams and Abram Cox. Z Nation also follows a post-apocalyptic drama and about zombies, but both are different and follow another course.
The Official Announcement Of Black Summer Season 2 and Release Date
In November 2019, Netflix promised that ‘Black Summer’ is returning with a new season of eight episodes. Preps for season two began in mid-2020, and in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, work was stopped on March 18, 2020. In July 2020, it was said that the work would resume from August but pushed back till September.
We are yet to receive an announcement regarding the official release date of the next season. We believe that it ought to be released before the completion of 2020 or mid-2021. The first season was titled “Human Flow.”
The following season will have as the main cast including Jaimy King as Rose as well as coming back in her duty as executive producer, Justin Chu Cary as Julius James, Sal Velez Jr as William Velez, Kelsey Flower as Lance, and Christina Lee as the Korean women.
As the sole show stealer, John Hyams will be back on board as he produced the show with Karl Schaefer-but this time, it seems he will be stealing the show alone! Scarcely any new faces have been added to the cast of the ensuing season.
It is challenging for fans to foresee season two’s plot as the last season wrapped up, keeping them on their toes. After season 1’s finale, both Rose and her daughter, being alive, rejoined together. Other than Rose, Spears, and Sun, they sorted out a way to make the journey. And they’ll likely make a comeback together.
About Lance, we can say that he escaped from a party and ran away, with a horde of zombies around. But there’s no possibility of seeing him alive, but we can hope so, at least for a few episodes! Fans are similarly looking for the show to interface with the events referred to in the course of action by the Z Nation.
