  • Season 2 of Netflix’s KINGDOM Begins Shooting in February
  • by Pierce Conran /  Jan 07, 2019
  • Key Cast Members Return for Netflix’s 1st Korean Original Series

    Just as its first season is gearing up for its global launch on January 25, the Korean Netflix Original series Kingdom is already getting ready to go back into production on its second season, which will begin shooting in February and is expected to continue until June of this year. The period horror-thriller stars RYU Seung-ryong, BAE Doo-na and JU Ji-hoon.

    Adapted from the webcomic ‘Land of the Gods’ by KIM Eun-hee, the star TV drama writer who also serves as showrunner here, Kingdom is directed by KIM Seong-hun, known for A Hard Day (2014) and Tunnel (2016). During Korea’s Joseon Era, strange rumors concerning the king spread around the land, while the crown prince emerges as the kingdom’s only hope against a plague that is turning people into violent killers.

    A representative of the series related that the principal actors were already confirmed for a second season while shooting the first six-episode season last year. Netflix CEO Reed HASTINGS announced the second season during the global streaming platform’s recent showcase in Singapore, explaining how rare it is to greenlight a second season of a program ahead of its first season’s premiere.

    RYU Seung-ryong of Miracle in Cell No.7 (2013) and Roaring Currents (2014) stars along with BAE Doo-na of The Host (2006) and Cloud Atlas and JU Ji-hoon, recently seen in both Along with the Gods films and The Spy Gone North (2018).
