Has Zombieverse been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

Renewed Or Cancelled?

Zombieverse is the latest reality series right out of Korea, answering the age old question – what would you do in the event of a zombie apocalypse? Across the 8 episodes, our characters aim to do just that!

If you’ve finished watching this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know so far:

What is Zombieverse Season 1 about?

Zombieverse’s premise is something that many people have likely discussed while drinking or watching their favourite zombie flick with their friends – how would you survive if a zombie apocalypse consumed the world? For anyone who has read Max Brooks’ two books, World War Z and The Zombie Survival Guide, then you may be a little more clued up on answering that than others! When it comes to this Korean series, Zombieverse assumes that our characters know absolutely nothing and are plunged right in the heart of the drama.

The first episode sets the scene, with a group of men and women believing they’re being cast to star in a dating show called Love Hunter. In reality, they’re actually the hunted as a zombie outbreak consumes the set, and the wider Korean area. From here, our five survivors set out to try and find salvation, wait out the infection and try to survive until the very end. Along the way they’re joined by other survivors, while there’s a smattering of different “quests” thrown in that help to freshen things up.

Has Zombieverse been renewed for season 2?

At the time of writing, Netflix have not renewed Zombieverse for a second season. Given the nature of this series, that could change if it does good numbers for the streamers.

Generally Netflix, like other streaming platforms, gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton etc.) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.

So far, Zombieverse has had a very mixed reaction from audiences and critics alike, with the series easy to watch but tonally a bit conflicted with its blend of horror and comedy.

The story is pretty much done so a new cast would be needed. However, it seems unlikely that this experiment (which looks pretty costly) would be replicated again. With all that in mind, we predict that Netflix will not renew Zombieverse for a follow-up season. Now, that could change but this seems more like a one and done affair.

We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!

What we know about season 2 so far:

Not much is known about season 2 at the time of writing, given Netflix have not officially renewed this one yet. Should the streamers decide to greenlight this one, it’s fair to assume that we’ll have a brand new cast, another similar set of quests and lots more laughs.

It’s likely that Netflix will make an official announcement several months from now, once the final viewing figures are in, but for now we’ll have to wait and see. We’ll be sure to update this section with more information as it becomes available.
