A king's reign continues past the constraints of mortality when he rises from the dead in Netflix's upcoming Korean series Kingdom, and ahead of the series' premiere this January, Netflix revealed the first teaser trailer for the latest project from director Seong-hun Kim.

Ahead of the first season's premiere, Variety reports that Netflix has already green-lit a second season of Kingdom, as revealed by CEO Reed Hastings at the streaming service's "See What’s Next: Asia" presentation in Singapore, where many other exciting announcements were made, including a new Pacific Rim anime series.

According to Variety, Kingdom takes place around "600 years ago in Chosun Dynasty-era Korea," where a mysterious plague "turns people into something akin to zombies." The series is directed by Seong-hun Kim and written by Kim Eun-hee.

Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates on Kingdom, and check out the images and teaser trailer below.

"The deceased king is resurrected and a new evil awakens in the Kingdom. The mystery begins on January 25, 2019 only on Netflix."
