Why we are all dead does not need a second season

Of the hundreds of students at Hyosan High School, only a small handful survived the outbreak, such as On-jo, Su-hyeok, Dae-su, Ha-ri, Mi-jin, and Hyo-ryung. Not to mention, the vast majority of the Hyosan population was turned into a zombie and destroyed by the Korean army’s strategic bombing. What little remains of the survivors now reside in a refugee camp while the army determines if and when Hyosan is safe enough for them to return.

For those who survived, their stories are mostly over as they each try to find their place in the new world. And unless a new outbreak occurs, it’s extremely difficult to determine where the story goes next.

Why we are all dead need a second season

The only character the second season could revolve around is Nam-Ra, who after being infected by Gwi-Nam did not succumb to the virus and turned into a mindless zombie. Instead, Nam-Ra was able to retain humanity from him, at the same time he received the benefit of the virus that has given him increased strength, stamina, and the ability to survive injuries that would paralyze or kill a normal human.

After meeting with the other survivors from Hyosan High School, Nam-Ra revealed that there are more like her and that she is currently helping them survive. The fact that there are more human-zombie hybrids like Nam-Ra can be incredibly dangerous, especially if they can’t overcome their urges to eat and kill like Gwi-Nam and Eun-Ji.

A bite from a hybrid doesn’t guarantee you’ll become one either, as demonstrated by Gwi-Nam, who after biting Ha-Ri’s archery teammate quickly succumbed to the infection and turned into a mindless zombie. Therefore, all it takes is for one hybrid or «half» to give in to starvation of it and a new outbreak could occur again.

What is the production status of we are all dead season 2?

Production status: Pre-production (Last update: 11/30/2022)

It’s been a few months since our last update and sadly the needle hasn’t moved on production status. Despite the rumours, we can’t find any evidence that filming for the second season of All of Us Are Dead has begun.

On social media and on the MyAnimeList comment section page for the second season, there are claims that filming is 50% complete. However, we are unable to find any evidence to suggest this is correct, as no sources have been provided to support these claims.

Some of the images shared online claim that filming for the second season is ongoing, but we cannot verify this.

Until we can find concrete evidence, for now, we must assume Season 2 of we are all dead it is still in pre-production.
