Netflix is moving forward on a second season of zombie drama “Black Summer,” with an order for eight new episodes. Spun-off from “Z Nation,” “Black Summer” stars Jaime King (who will also be a producer on season two) as Rose, a mother who is separated from her daughter during the early days of a zombie uprising. Rose will stop at nothing to find her, joining a small group of refugees and braving a hostile new world in her quest.
Returning castmembers for season two include Justin Chu Cary and Christine Lee. Additional castmembers will be announced later.
“Black Summer,” a Netflix Studio Production, is created and executive produced by “Z Nation” co-creator/executive producer Karl Schaefer and co-executive producer John Hyams. In addition to Hyams and Schaefer, Abram Cox, also from “Z Nation,” also is a writer/exec producer on the show.
