‘Reality Z’ is a rendition of the zombie (slash) horror (slash) comedy mash-up. Based on the British series ‘Dead Set’, the Brazilian series is directed by Cláudio Torres and embraces the same trope as its source of inspiration. A bunch of reality stars is trapped inside a house when they are attacked by brain-hungry zombies. Well, after a chaotic 10-episode season 1, do you wish to know if there will be a ‘Reality Z’ season 2? If yes, read on!
Reality Z Season 2 Release Date
‘Reality Z’ season 1 premiered on June 10, 2020, on Netflix. It consisted of 10 episodes. Director Cláudio Torres had originally conceptualized the show as an anthology with multiple installments. He said during an interview with Deadline: “My challenge was to turn a five-part anthology miniseries into a series that can unfold into many seasons without losing the spirit, humor, and social critique that Charlie conceived in the original Dead Set. For a fantastic movie fan, direct the first Brazilian zombie series is a gift that Netflix gave me.”
However, a final decision will depend on Netflix. If the streamer’s intentions resonate with Torres’s ambitions, it will give a go-ahead for a new season. If that does happen, we expect ‘Reality Z’ season 2 to release sometime in 2022.
Reality Z Season 2 Cast: Who Can be in it?
‘Reality Z’ follows a bunch of reality stars, stuck inside their filming studio when a zombie apocalypse breaks out. Portraying these different characters are Ana Hartmann as Nina, Ravel Andrade as Leo Schmidt, Guilherme Weber as Brand, Carla Ribas as Ana Schmidt, Emílio de Mello as Alberto Levi, Jesus Luz as Lucas, Luellem de Castro as Teresa, João Pedro Zappa as TK, Hanna Romanazzi as Jessica, Leandro Daniel as Augusto, Gabriel Canella as Marcos, Wallie Ruy as Madonna, Julia Ianina as Cristina, and Natália Rosa as Veronica.
Since the series is created as an anthology, we expect a new roster of stars in the next season. However, we might also witness a bunch of familiar faces making comebacks as well.
Reality Z Season 2 Plot: What Can it be About?
‘Reality Z’ is based on the zombie-comedy, ‘Dead Set’, created by Charlie Brooker and released in 2008. The events of the show take place in Rio-de-Janeiro, Brazil, which houses the studio for filming the reality series, ‘Olimpo, The House of Gods’. However, in the midst of shooting, there is a zombie outbreak. As a result, the contestants are trapped inside the studio while clinging on to each other for dear life!
What happens hereafter is predictable. There’s a lot of slashing, chopping and running when the zombies break the walls and enter the house. NO SPOILERS! But the story for the characters in this season seems to have ended. And this was expected since the show is an anthology. Season 2 will take up a different premise while staying faithful to the zombie/horror theme. But the details are tightly under wraps as of now. We will update this section as and when we learn more.
