Let’s say, you can transport back centuries when Earth was a mere desert and nothing much existed. What would you do? Well, your newly curated list aside. Your first task would most probably be to ensure that we, as humans, do not repeat the mistakes we did and make our planet better. Netflix’s brand new K-drama, Black Knight or RR: Taekbaegisa, picks this very statement and turns it into an intriguing plot. When oxygen–something we so easily take for granted–has become a luxury and the world is nothing but a mass desert. After a drastic comet attack, the world is back to square one with only 1% of the trillions of people having survived the attack.
Korean industry is now spreading its roots in the sci-fi genre after giving us some heart-throbbing romances and nerve-chilling revenge stories. Don’t you want to know more about this latest K-drama, Black Knight Season 2? Well, if your answer is yes, come join me!
Black Knight Season 2 Release Date
Can you imagine your life without these online delivery and shopping apps? Well, I can’t. Be it a quick pizza or a dress, everything is now delivered to our doorstep. Imagine ordering oxygen tanks now. In this new Netflix sci-fi drama, a community called Knights deliver oxygen tanks to the doorstep of the deserted population and saves them from theft. This is the story of Black mask-ladden Knight, April (Kang Yoo-Seok) as he aspires to become a courier and save people from unnatural death and oxygen theft of course.
Regarding Black Knight Season 2 updates, there is no official confirmation from the series director, Cho Ui Seok or the streaming host, Netflix. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, shall we? Black Knight’s sequel depends upon the viewers’ ratings like it is with every other series but the project is quite ambitious to be left deserted. Since there are a ton of volumes available of the Taekbaegisa webtoon by Lee Yoon Kyun, the sequel has a lot of source material available. If Black Knight Season 2 gains approval from Netflix soon, it will most likely premiere in spring 2024. Here is to hoping Ui Seok would come up with a new season!

Black Knight Season 2 Possible Storyline
The premise, as we discussed, is set in a deserted post-apocalyptic Earth. It follows the Cheonmyeong Group, a cult that is ruling this new world with an iron fist, and April, a refugee who aspires to become a deliveryman. Though Earth is demolished wholly, the 1% population that managed to survive the attack are now being divided into classes again. The Cheonmyeong Group is a team of people who consider themselves the metaphorical God of the new world but their methods of ruling the world are highly questionable.
In a world where oxygen comes for a hefty price and survival is a tough endeavour, everyone should help each other. With this mindset, April aspires to make himself as useful as possible by becoming an oxygen delivery man. Black Knight Season 2 will be picking up the story from here and highlight the ultimate war to take down the Cheonmyeong Group who are polluting the earth more than the dust that has taken over. It will be an action-packed emotion-induced thrilling ride fueled by some intense questions!
