“Black Summer ss 3”: release date, announcement
The zombie apocalypse theme is gaining momentum, as is the sequel to “Black Summer”. It is believed that the next season will be released in 2023, in which a small group of survivors will fight a new, hostile world. However, at the moment there is no information that the filming of the season 3 has begun. We just have to keep an eye on the news.
The TV show is a spin-off and prequel to the popular project “Z Nation” (2014-2018), and it takes place in the same universe.
Deciding to escape the zombie pursuit, Rose and her daughter trust the military. Unfortunately, this was a mistake. Anna, who has left, is trying in every possible way to escape and reunite with her mother. Rose does the same, joining a group of people who are looking for a place safe from zombies. The road is full of tragic events, and only the final goal gives Rose hope for a happy ending.
Rose’s savior from a friend turned zombie also joined the group. Everyone called him Spears, since he was wearing a military uniform when he met Rose. The name “Spears” was written on it. In fact, the guy ran away from the military, and when he had to defend himself, he killed one of them and changed into the uniform of the deceased. Among the advantages of Spears are the ability to fight and hide.
Another member of the group was a Korean woman, everyone called her Sun. At first, she only tried to flee, but very soon she realized that she would not survive alone. Thanks to her patient nature, the ability to help and protect, Sun was able to stay close to Rose, Spears and the others. But all this is only a matter of time, as they are attacked from all sides and trying to separate.
In Season 1, the team repeatedly had to make difficult decisions, abandon dear people, betray, defend their interests. Rose was able to find a daughter and even spend some time with her. Unfortunately, the season 2 finale ruined all plans and abruptly changed the direction of the plot. A mortally wounded mother, whose future is predetermined, forced Anna to grow up prematurely.
For Spears, everything turned out to be just as unsuccessful, because saving the team, he was wounded by a zombie, and later Anna helped him die with dignity. The helicopter that arrived with the Korean on board gave the audience hope that the future of the group would be shown in Korea. Sun easily found a common language with the pilot, but could not really understand where they were flying.
What will turn out Anna’s unwillingness to fly with the others? Why was she left with her dying mother if it wasn’t safe here? Was all of Rose’s efforts to save her daughter in vain? What is the fate of Mance? Is he bitten? Alive? And Boone’s future remains unknown…
