Netflix’s epic zombie series, Black Summer, is coming back with its second season in 2020. The wait is finally over. The zombie thriller, Black Summer, was created by Karl Schaefer and John Hyams. However, the new series is a prequel to the original series which was created in the same universe as Z Nation.
Though A Prequel It Has A Darker And More Intimate Spiritual Tone To Itself
The series has a much more nuanced and yet darker undertone than any of the other zombie thrillers. Nonetheless, the series seems to be a spiritual successor of the overly successful zombie series Z Nation. It is the quest of a mother who joins absolute strangers to find her daughter. She is also on a journey to find those who she dearly loves. It is set in the darkest days of the Zombie Apocalypse, years before the days in Z Nation.

However, in November 2019 there had been official confirmation. Season 2 of this dark zombie thriller is finally coming back.
