As confirmed by the streaming platform, the upcoming special episode will run for 92 minutes and serve as a spin-off prequel to the first two seasons of the main Kingdom show. Just like the title suggests, the one-off project will follow Ashin, who first appeared in the final episode of the show’s second season, as she escapes from her traumatic past on a vengeful mission that brings her away from the north and deeper into the zombie epidemic. The episode will also shed more light on the origins of the Ressurection Plant, which will no doubt play into the series’ upcoming third season.
For fans of the Korean zombie drama, Kingdom: Ashin of the North will arrive on Netflix July 23.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Netflix has announced the release date for the second season of The Witcher.
