The first season of Black Summer saw Rose, a mother looking for her daughter Anna. The show saw Rose taking refugee and joining hands with strangers in a struggle to survive and reunite with her daughter. The first season ended on a good note for the main character. She managed to reunite with her daughter at the stadium. Thus closing one chapter. The surviving members along with Rose and Anna were Sun, Spears, and Rose.
Now the second season of Black Summer sees the survivors keeping themselves alive amidst the winter. They need to find a good shelter if they want to make it through the season or else they are freezing themselves to death. Fighting the flesh-eaters, they find hope when they see a flying craft. Something they see as a ticket to the haven. But the thing here is, to make it alive, Zombies are not the only ones to be worried about. The most dangerous creatures around are the other humans. The trailer targets humans as the biggest threat in the show way more than zombies.
