Netflix is ready for their own zombie series with Kingdom.
Taking place in an ancient kingdom struggling with famine and corruption, a crown prince must stave off the zombie horde and uncover an evil conspiracy in order to save his people.
The eight-episode series will focus on the mysterious zombie outbreak and the mission to stop it from spreading. With the setting being based in the Joseon Dynasty era (which ran from 1392-1897) this will give fans of the genre a new twist on the classic.
Based on Kim Eun-hee’s webcomic, Land of the Gods, the series stars Ju Ji-hoon (Dark Figure of Crime), Bae Doona (Cloud Atlas), Ryu Seung-ryong (Miracle in Cell No. 7), Kim Sang-ho (The Witness), Heo Joon-ho (Sovereign Default), and Jeon Seok-ho (Miss Baek).
The first season of Kingdom (directed by The Tunnel‘s Kim Seong-hun) rises from the dead on Netflix January 25.
