For those who have read our reviews and articles, you’ll know that we’re Walking Dead snobs. We have high regard for that show, it’s insanely popular and so, other television series and films have constantly tried to replicate that success. And 99% of those attempts we get fifteen seconds into the preview and immediately hit the “off” button simply because they are so bad. Oddly enough, we did not do this with SyFy’s new zombie drama Z Nation, a 13-episode series set to debut in the fall.

The first thing that caught our eye is that the series appears to stay true to the horror. Zombies are scary, dangerous creatures and are not ones who have feelings, romantic problems, or any other nonsense. But most importantly, there’s a spin on the story that’s a tad bit different from everything else that’s available out there. The series begins three years after the zombie outbreak began with the majority of the world’s population already infected or dead. However, there is a single person who survived a bite and this person becomes the beacon of hope that a vaccine can be developed and save what remains of the human race. The story focuses on a small group of survivors whose mission is to get this person to the last viral lab in the United States located in California.

The cast includes Harold Perrineau (Lost, Oz), Tom Everett Scott (Beauty and the Beast, Southland), DJ Qualls (Road Trip, Supernatural), Michael Welch (The Twilight trilogy), Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show), Anastasia Baranova (The Darkness II), Russell Hodgkingson (Big Fish) and Keith Allan (Rise of the Zombies). Karl Schaefer (Eerie Indiana, Eureka, The Dead Zone) will serve as executive producer and showrunner.

Z Nation premiere’s this September on Syfy.
