Kingdom | 킹덤 (2019)
The mega top zombie TV-series helped turn the tide for Korean horror TV-Series and certainly the interest in Korean zombies. A mysterious illness has befallen the king in a fictionalized version of Korea in the Joseon area. The illness of zombification is spreading throughout the kingdom and the crown prince travels out from the castle to solve the mystery behind his father’s ailment. Out there he finds a kingdom in disarray and hoards of zombies threatening the whole kingdom he was born to protect. With its two season wrapped story it looks like this is the whole of it, but with sidequel/prequel like movies like Kingdom: Ashin of the North, and the original cartoon with its specials, who is to say this a finished series?

Game Of Thrones (2011-2019)
Can we call the fantasy series about dragons, crowns and the God of light a zombie show? Yes, why not, as some of the seasons heavily focused on the threat of the North coming to Westeros. Behind the wall, the thing separating the civilized south to the wild north, an ancient threat has awakened. And while they squander about who can sit on the throne and not in the south, the people in the north and beyond the wall needs to find a way to protect all humans against these monsters.
Although the plot with the zombies came to a rather abrupt end in the last season, the zombies were a rather fresh take on the zombie genre as well as it place in the fantasy universe.
