BLACK SUMMER 2 CAST: WHO’S RETURNING?
Jaime King will return as Rose. Justin Chu Cary will also be back as Spears, and Christine Lee as Kyungsun. In case there are any changes, we will have to wait for confirmation.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THIS SEASON?
Jamie King might have dropped a few hints for the fans. During an interview with ComicBook.com, she said, “What I can tease is that whatever you think is going to happen, will not happen. It will always keep you on your toes.” We are going to see a lot more than a zombie apocalypse. Nothing is predictable.
