Kingdom: Ashin of the North coming in 2021
Kingdom was one of the first Netflix Original‘s to get a season 2 confirmed even before the first episode of season one aired. Netflix knew they had a winner on their hands, and hey, who doesn’t like a good, refreshing zombie series?
In Kingdom, the series dealt with a king that was kept behind closed doors. Rumours spread fast that their king was sick, suffering from a degenerative disease. The truth was, he was a victim to a new plague-like virus caused by a rare flower.
This virus turns anyone it comes in contact with to a zombie…actually, the great thing about Kingdom is that they ain’t really zombies. They carry many of the same traits, decomposition, the craving and need to feed on human flesh. But they also hate sunlight and stay hidden away during daylight hours and come out to feed at night. So, to me, they’re called ZomPires.
It makes perfect sense for Netflix to release more. Kingdom: Ashin Of The North is more of an origin story and goes back to when this venomous and evil flower was first discovered. The only downside to Kingdom: Ashin Of The North is that its a one-off episode. I am not sure of the run-time as of yet but I can bet it’s going to be feature-length, and hey! I am more than ok with that. Also, it is going to be good to give us something while we wait for the third season.
Here is the short teaser trailer. I hope you enjoy it.
For those of you that are unaware, Kingdom is based off a webcomic called The Kingdom Of The Gods. The new episode is based on a short story set in the same universe called, Burning Hell.
More to follow as new is announced. As always, thanks for reading.
