Currently filming is an exciting sci-fi k-drama series coming to Netflix in 2022, Black Knight. Set in a dystopian future, we fully expect Black Knight to be another South Korean hit on Netflix. Here’s everything we know so far about Black Knight season 1.

Black Knight is an upcoming South Korean Netflix Original sci-fi series based on the webtoon Taekbaegisa by Lee Yoon Kyun. The series is directed by Cho Ui Seok known for his screenwriting and directorial work on Cold Eyes and Master.

When is the Black Knight Netflix release date?

At the time of writing Black Knight is scheduled for a 2022 release, but Netflix has yet to confirm an official date. With filming ongoing we would expect to see the sci-fi k-drama to land on Netflix in either November or December 2022.

Release dates are subject to change and there is every chance the series could be pushed back to an early 2023 release.


What is the plot of Black Knight?

In the year 2071, only 1% of the world population has survived the toxic air pollution that has ravaged the planet. For those that remain, society has been restructured into a strict social class where people rarely leave their homes and are required to wear gas masks because of the pollution. Citizens rely upon the Knights, a group of specialized delivery drivers, to get their supplies and protect them from thieves.


Who are the cast members of Black Knight?

It’s a Netflix debut for actor Kim Woo Bin. The popular model and actor previously starred in the likes of The Heirs and School 2013. He’ll also be starring in the upcoming Netflix K-Drama Our Blues.

What is the production status of Black Knight?

Official Production Status: Filming (Last Updated: 17/05/2022)

Filming for Black Knight began on March 12th, 2022, and has been ongoing for just over two months. We’re not sure when filming will end but for the series to arrive in 2022 we’d suspect filming will end sometime before June or July  2022.
