After Army Of The Dead get ready for loads more Zombie action from Netflix

It’s getting closer, the wait is almost over – Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead is almost here, but that ain’t all we’re getting!

It looks like Netflix have high hopes for Zack Snyder’s upcoming zombie film Army of The Dead. It has been announced that a feature-length prequel to Army of the Dead is on the way also. And not only that, we will be treated to a wonderful 4-part animated series that takes us back to the origin of infection.

As I have said before, Army of the Dead has been around a long time. In fact, it was written just 4-years after the release of Snyder’s DOTD remake. It has been on a shelf since 2008. So, just my personal opinion, I think when Snyder wrote Army of the Dead then it was at least set in the same universe as DOTD. Now those rumours are said not to be true. But, if it was a sequel, prequel or set in the same universe as Dawn of the Dead, then that would destroy or mess up the plans for more movies. And we know what more movies means?…more cash and BOOM – a franchise! Army of the Dead is now a standalone film with no ties to an already owned franchise.

Very little information is available but I can tell you that they are happening: A feature-length movie and an animated series, both prequels to Snyder’s upcoming zombie film Army of the Dead.

More Zombie Action Coming From Netflix in 2021

We should also see the return of the fantastic zombie series Black Summer as it returns for a second season.

If you haven’t checked out Black Summer then please do. I really enjoyed it despite reading some really bad reviews for it. A great approach to the zombie apocalypse that focuses way more than the action than the soap opera-style drama. Stephen King also gave it a special mention on Twitter recently.

No details regarding the release for the new season but it is said to be dropping sometime this year.

More from the great Kingdom

South Korean zombie series, Kingdom will also be returning with a special feature-length episode called Kingdom: Ashin of the North ahead of the third season. The special one-off episode will be an origin story of the resurrection flower.

In the meantime, Army of the Dead will release on Netflix on May 21st. The teaser trailer drops this Thursday!
