    SPOILER ALERT

    Yes indeed. Unfortunately, it's a cliff hanger end to season 1. They're readying defenses and waiting for a huge zombie horde to attack; and these are '28 days' class type zombies (meaning they don't shuffle, but run like Olympic sprinters or the kind seen in World War Z, or 28 Days). The defenders think they know the zombies weakness, but then at the end of the first season, it's revealed that their understanding of the zombie weakness is totally wrong and their defensive strategy thus is misguided. The season ends on that note, setting the stage for a new season of zombie fest in a Korean period drama. Can't wait and hope the next season comes soon. Great that Netflix can do this, that is, bring non western fantasy period dramas.

    actually, there shouldnt be a season 3 would be best. They should just stop at season 2 and mark it the end since all the bosses are defeated, best ending already. I understand Netflix wants to drag this on like walking dead to melt more money.

    Er... no. IIRC, the evil Queen, after she died, became undead, and was resurrected. So while they thought the good guys won, the undead queen is still lurking somewhere. That alone would be worthy of another season or two. Besides, who wouldn't want an ethnic, period, fantasy drama with zombies? :clap2::clap2::clap2:

    I finished season 2 some time ago, it was gooood!
    That queen! So evil, I was on the edge of my seat when she had the baby~ couldn’t believe her actions. It was intense lol

    Can’t wait for season 3, the teaser of the jingle bells and the zombies “controlled” reminds me of the old school chinese vampires when they were being led with the bells and ofuda talismans.
