Kingdom

Picking up from the events of the first season, an epidemic turns Joseon into chaos. The quenchless greed of the Cho family results to a hell on earth with people infected by the malady increasing exponentially in numbers.

In Kingdom Season 2, Crown Prince Lee Chang continues his desperate, bloody struggle, with no one he can trust to help him.

Blood will Spill

The main poster depicts the main characters on a rooftop, fleeing from a flock of zombies who are growing at a rapid rate. This scene reckons the cliff-hanging finale of season 1. That is an imminent onslaught by an army of zombies who, despite the break of dawn, do not fall back to sleep in the daytime as they had before.

The tagline, ‘Blood Will Spill’ foreshadows the increasing terror experienced by those running for their lives and running out of options. Each character’s face is marked by hopeless desperation, but they are all determined to survive the agonizing struggle that awaits them in season 2 of Kingdom.

Lee Chang (Ju Ji Hoon) is tougher now and more determined, as he fights to protect his people from the growing legions of zombies. Cho Hak-ju (Ryu Seung Ryong) continues to be power-hungry, while Seo-bi (Bae Doo Na) is on the brink of a breakthrough with the resurrection plant.

Mu-yeong (Kim Sang Ho) is still steadfastly looking after Chang, and Yeong-sin (Kim Sung Kyu) is fiercer than ever. Terror-stricken Beom-pal is also in the picture while the Queen’s character is introduced with her expressionless demeanor.

Ramping up the tension for Season 2 is the new character Min Chi-rok, who investigates a suspicious murder in Hanyang.

Aiming to continue its captivating story, Prince Lee Chang journeys back to Hanyang in search of the roots of the plague and the bloody struggle instigated by the secret plot of Joseon’s seat of power.

Kingdom season 2 starts streaming via Netflix beginning March 13.
