Blood of Zeus Season 2 Renewal Status, New- Daily Research Plot

Published

on

Blood of Zeus Season 2 Updates: Blood of Zeus is one of the more entertaining fruits of Netflix’s increased interest in animated programs for mature audiences. Charley and Vlas Parlapanides’ epic musical explores a “lost chapter” of Greek mythology in which Heron, Zeus’s illegitimate child, learns about his ancestry and seeks to embrace his heritage as a hero.

In terms of chaotic animation and combat choreography, as well as its take on the subject matter, Blood of Zeus is a remarkable feat. The first season of the show delivers a compelling story about Heron and several other prominent characters vying for supremacy on Mount Olympus.

Although a second season has not been confirmed, there are various threads from the first set of episodes that point to where Blood of Zeus will go.

The first season of Blood of Zeus is centered on Heron’s discovery of his link to Zeus and whether or not he will grow up to be the kind of hero who can properly follow in the footsteps of his father or any of the other Gods in his inner circle.

Heron faces his hardest hurdles yet in the season finale of Blood of Zeus, and in his battle against Seraphim, he ultimately taps into his Godly skills and unleashes a fury of thunder and lightning that resembles Zeus’ own abilities.

Mount Olympus Has a New Ruler

Blood of Zeus ends on the surprise note that Hera succeeds in her vengeful plan and kills Zeus. The first season finale is so focused on the conflict that it doesn’t take the time to consider the power vacuum that Zeus’ absence creates, yet the Gods will need a new ruler. Heron is a Zeus descendant, and it appears like he’s being groomed to be a candidate, but he’s still very new to everything.

It would be premature to place Heron in command of Olympus, and doing so would undoubtedly make him a target for the other Gods. Other characters, like Heron’s brother Apollo, appear to be better choices for the position of Olympus’ new ruler. Apollo has paid his dues and is also a key figure in the ongoing struggle against the Giants. Season two may possibly include some sort of strong competition to determine who would be the future lord of Mount Olympus.

Blood of Zeus Season 2 In The Underworld, There Are Seraphim

The fate of Seraphim is the most intriguing storyline teased in Blood of Zeus’ season finale. Seraphim’s arc in Blood of Zeus is possibly even more interesting than Heron’s. Seraphim dies in the climactic battle, however, a post-credits scene reveals that Seraphim is far from dead.

Seraphim emerges in the Underworld as a spirit and becomes Hades’ new pawn. It’s odd that Seraphim goes from being a lunatic’s puppet to becoming a tool for someone else.

Hades clearly has enormous plans against the Gods, and Seraphim is an important part of them. After his battle with Heron, Seraphim’s hatred for these gods is at an all-time high. Several points in the first season devote an unusual amount of attention to components of the Underworld, and it appears that the goal is to pay these themes off in the second season.

It wouldn’t be out of place for Blood of Zeus to reverse the tables in season two and make Seraphim more of the protagonist to provide a distinct viewpoint on everything that’s happened so far.

Hera’s and the Giants’ Return

Over the course of its first season, Blood of Zeus introduces a slew of opponents and perilous barriers, but it’s Hera who emerges as the malevolent mastermind behind most of the drama. Hera’s threat looks to have passed, but her fate isn’t as certain as Zeus’, and it’s possible that she’s only waiting for the proper opportunity to strike again.

Whoever succeeds Hera as the new ruler of Mount Olympus must be prepared for Hera’s eventual return. Similarly, the Giants are a major source of opposition for the Gods, but the season ends with them, as well as Hera, resolving the drama.

It would be shocking if the Gods and the Giants didn’t reappear in some way, given their long history and endless rivalry. Season one teased the concept of these ultimate powers forming coalitions for the common good, thus season two may bring both Hera and the Giants back, albeit as reluctant allies.

Blood of Zeus offers a lot of possibilities for what it can achieve with these characters and their story, but they’ll undoubtedly push themselves and Greek mythology to new heights.

Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is a beloved modern classic. The comic book series–centered on Morpheus, the Dream King, and his quest to reclaim his power after being imprisoned–is getting its own Netflix adaptation.

The streamer has been the home of more than one high profile fantasy over the last few years. In 2019, The Witcher snagged mainstream pop culture’s attention and is set to do so again with its second season on Dec. 17. Earlier this year, Shadow and Bone took the top fantasy spot on Netflix, and it looks like The Sandman will do the same in 2022.

On Tuesday, Nov. 30, Netflix Geeked announced more than a handful of upcoming titles for subscribers to expect next year.

Sandwiched in-between Resident Evil and Stranger Things season 4 was The Sandman. So, it won’t be too much longer before fans can binge watch the 11 episode season which will cover storylines from the first two volumes of the comic book series, Preludes and Nocturnes and The Doll’s House, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Here’s when the series could land on Netflix.

WHO says South Africa hospitalizations rising, omicron severity unclear

Published

Hospitalizations are rising across South Africa, but it’s still too early to know whether the omicron variant is driving an increase in severe Covid-19 cases, according to the World Health Organization.

Maria Van Kerkhove, Covid technical lead for the WHO, said Wednesday that some patients infected with omicron are showing mild symptoms, but there are also reports of cases in which the disease becomes more severe. Hospitalizations could be rising due to a general increase in Covid cases and not necessarily because omicron is more lethal, Van Kerkhove said.

“With regards to severity, there are studies that are underway looking at hospitalizations, looking at those individuals who are hospitalized, whether or not they have this variant or not,” Van Kerkhove told reporters during an update in Geneva. “We’re also getting a picture of some of the cases that are detected in other countries.”

The WHO reported Wednesday that 23 countries have identified omicron cases so far, up from 18 just two days ago, and that number is expected to rise in the coming days and weeks. The United States has not yet detected the variant, but White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci has said it’s a matter of time before omicron is sequenced in America.

Van Kerkhove said there are early indications that omicron is more infectious, and the WHO expects to have more information on the variant’s transmissibility within days.

“It is certainly possible that one of the scenarios is that the virus, as it continues to evolve, may still have a fitness advantage, meaning that it can become more transmissible than delta, we’ll have to see,” she said. “But we don’t know quite yet about the severity.” Van Kerkhove noted there’s a “surveillance bias” in reported Covid cases that may cloud the early data.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a Pfizer board member and a former commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, told CNBC on Wednesday that there was a mini-delta surge in South Africa as well as an uptick in a separate variant, C.1.2, which complicates efforts to gain clarity on omicron’s transmission and virulence.

Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel told CNBC on Monday that omicron symptoms reported in South Africa may not be a good predictor of the variant’s virulence in other parts of the world, because the country has a much younger and healthier population than European nations and the United States. The elderly are typically at higher risk of developing severe Covid than younger individuals.

Van Kerkhove said Wednesday that the public health measures used to fight delta, which is currently the dominant variant worldwide, should be strengthened to combat omicron.

“That does not mean lockdown. What that means is using proven public health and social measures,” Van Kerkhove said. The WHO recommended last week that people wear masks and socially distance regardless of their vaccination status.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Wednesday advised countries against imposing “blanket travel bans,” warning that such measures do not prevent the spread of omicron and place a heavy economic burden on the nations that are targeted. The U.S., the European Union and the U.K. restricted travel from southern African nations after South Africa alerted the world about omicron. Botswana said Friday it first detected the variant on four foreign nationals who entered the country on a diplomatic mission on Nov. 7 as part of its regular Covid surveillance.

“I thank Botswana and South Africa for detecting, sequencing and reporting this variant so rapidly,” Tedros said. “It’s deeply concerning to me that those countries are now being penalized by others for doing the right thing.”

Van Kerkhove said placing travel restrictions on countries that report new variants to the international community could make them hesitant to share critical information in the future.

“If there is any disincentive if countries feel like they will be penalized for recording that information, that is of course a worry for us,” she said “We rely on this information, quite frankly.”

The WHO will hold a meeting on Dec. 6 to discuss how well natural and vaccine-induced immunity is holding up against Covid, including the omicron variant. Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, the organization’s chief scientist, said the primary goal of the world should be to ensure that as many people as possible have received their first vaccination series, particularly those who are vulnerable.

“There are all countries that still have vulnerable populations that have not been vaccinated for one reason or another,” Swaminathan said. “Of course, there are a large number of low-income countries where it hasn’t happened because we haven’t had the supplies.”

Wealthy nations such as the United States have started rolling out booster doses to the general public as vaccine efficacy wanes over time. That has been a source of controversy internationally because many people in poorer nations have very limited access to vaccines.
