Here’s a plot summary: “Army of the Dead follows the aftermath of a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, and the group of mercenaries who venture into the quarantine zone to pull off a big heist.”

The prequel “will be directed by and star Grimme Award winner Matthias Schweighöfer and will follow his Army of the Dead character Ludwig Dieter.”

Shay Hatten, one of the writers of the screenplay for Army of the Dead, will write the prequel as well as the anime series.

“I’m incredibly excited for the opportunity to partner with Netflix again as we expand the Army of the Dead universe with both an international prequel, as well as exploring the visually dynamic world of animation. It’s been a great collaboration and we are thrilled that Netflix sees this as big of an IP as we do, Zack says.
