On May 18, 2020, Acorn TV and Citytv premiered Dead Still, a six-part Irish-Canadian drama television series. Written by John Morton and directed by Imogen Murphy and Craig David Wallace, the series is a co-production between Ireland’s Deadpan Pictures and Canada’s Shaftesbury Films.
In 2021, Dead Still received seven nominations for Irish Film and Television Awards (IFTAs), including Best Drama and Best Director.
‘Dead Still,’ an unsettling historical thriller from Acorn, features one of the most intriguing plots ever! The mystery thriller takes place in 1880s Europe, during the period of “post-mortem photography.” At the time, cameras were almost non-existent. They were prohibitively expensive if they were. The story takes place in the past, when mourning families hired memorial photographers to photograph their deceased loved ones. So, let’s get into the details of the second season of this oddball British drama (since season 1 has already wrapped up).
Dead Still Season 2 has a release date.
All of Us Are Dead has been renewed, according to Small Screen, and will premiere on Netflix in 2023. According to reports, Netflix executives have told the media outlet that “Season 2” will be ready in 2023. Until Netflix officially announces Season 2, this speculation should be handled with caution.
Despite the fact that work on the first season of the show was briefly halted in August 2020 owing to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, it is probable that there will be no further delays in the creation of Season 2.
When asked about Season 2, director Lee Jae-you said it would be fantastic to go on, but only if the first season gained enough attention.
On January 14, 2023, All of Us Are Dead Season 2 will not be available on Netflix.
Season 2 cast of Dead Still
This will be more difficult than the others because there aren’t many original cast members left.
There are a few survivors, therefore they may be able to return to the combat. On-jo (Park Ji-hu), Su-hook (Park Solomon), Dae-Su (I’m Jae-hyuk), Ha-ri (Ha Seung-ri), Mi-jin (Lee Eun-same), and Hyo-Myung (Park Hyo-rung) are the members of this group (Kim Bo-Yoon).
The only character we can expect to see again is Choi Nam-era (Cho Yi-Hyun). Unless the show decides to completely recast the actors in the future.
Season two of All of Us Are Dead will, in any case, offer a slew of new gruesome characters.
What Could Dead Still Season 2’s Plot Be?
Brock Blennerhasset, a well-known memorial photographer from the 1880s who resides in Dublin, is the protagonist of the novel. He makes a living photographing the dead, with the help of his eager new assistant, Conall Molloy, a former gravedigger. The crew also includes Brock’s sharp-witted niece, Nancy.
The daguerreotype is said to have been invented by Brock (a technique that captures pictures on an iodine-sensitized silvered plate). However, due to shifting circumstances, his career is degrading. Memorial portraiture is quickly becoming obsolete as cameras become more affordable. While Brock is dealing with his issues, a series of heinous murders endangers his reputation and career. A serial killer has designed a unique memorial image. He captures pictures of people who are about to die.
Detective Frederick Regan, meantime, drags the trio into an investigation that takes them deep into Dublin’s criminal underbelly. The crew must uncover this serial killer in a race against time while also tackling the rising black-market trade in unlicensed images. Brock fears losing his job or, worse, becoming one of his subjects if he doesn’t act quickly.
The darkly comic murder mystery series is set in the Victorian era, when “post-mortem photography” was commonplace. This Acorn TV original drama revisits an interesting premise. Season 1 of ‘Dead Still’ reveals the perpetrator but leaves many unanswered questions, offering an uncommon blend of humour, intrigue, and drama.
While Brock has numerous deep-seated worries, the loss of Henry has shaken him to his core. He fires Nancy to save her, but she is distraught and vows to avenge Henry’s murder. In season two, we hope they find their way back to each other. The Hellfire Club, on the other side, allows for more terrifying mysteries. Another scenario for the story is for Regan and Brock to team up to solve even more horrible murders. If a second season is made, the drama might take many different directions. We’ll keep this section updated when we learn more.
