When the television series BLACK SUMMER (2019) hit Netflix, the zombie apocalypse theme got a great refresh. Zombies had begun to feel stale but BLACK SUMMER was an intense show that felt like you were right in the action with its interesting camera dynamics.
With COVID-19 hitting, a production for a second season seemed in flux. Co-host Mike even felt a second season may not even be needed and worried it would not hold up to Season One. But not surprising, in 2021, BLACK SUMMER Season Two appeared. Dark Discussions had some prior knowledge as we interviewed showrunner John Hyams in 2020 for his movie ALONE (2020) where he told us Season Two was back in production (his interview with us was on location actually).
Dark Discussions Podcast once again were able to interview John Hyams about this amazing Season Two of BLACK SUMMER. He gives us an insight of the characters, the techniques used to film, the motivations of the lead protagonists/antagonists, and so much more. Co-host Philip was even able to ask if Taylor Swift could get a cameo in Season Three (she’s good friends with lead actress Jaime King and also godmother to her son.) Get ready for an awesome interview with one of today’s best talents.
