Netflix may not hastily be hatching its eggs when it comes to their upcoming Asian content, but that hasn’t impeded them from counting. With Kingdom, they’re especially including the new historical period zombie hybrid which they’ve already considered groundbreaking enough to garner a second season as of July as they waited out even airing the first.
That wait now comes to a close with the show’s eight-episode premiere now slated for January 25. A Hard Day and The Tunnel helmer Kim Seong-Hoon partners with award winning hit tvN series, Signal scribe, writer Kim Eun-Hee for the new show that centers a Joseon prince’s suicide mission to investigate a mysterious outbreak when the king dies and suddenly reanimates.
Dark Figure Of Crime star Ju Ji-hoon leads the cast along with Bae Doo-na of Sense8 and Cloud Atlas fame, and Psychokinesis star Ryoo Seung-ryong. The official trailer went live on Thursday and you can now view it above along with first look stills below.
