Considering the insanely massive success of AMC’s The Walking Dead from both a critical and commercial perspective, it’s no surprise that every network under the sun is trying to get into the zombie killing business. One of the latest contenders for our undead horror-loving hearts is the latest SyFy original series, Z Nation, and now the first trailer for it has officially been released. Check it out:
Beginning three years after the initial zombie outbreak, Z Nation follows a group of travelers that are attempting to get the only known survivor of a zombie attack from New York to California so the last functioning viral lab can analyze his blood and, hopefully, create a vaccine that can put an end to the rising dead madness.
That sounds like a plot right up our alley and, also, zombie baby. Anything that involves a zombie baby is something that we are totally down to watch. Not to mention that SyFy has been doing a fantastic job with their original and acquired series lately. From the currently airing Continuum and Defiance to the soon-to-debut 12 Monkeys, the network’s been going through a vigorous re-branding lately to reposition it as must-watch television, and Z Nation’s looking like another mark for the win column. Not as dark and grim as The Walking Dead, but hopefully just as much fun.
Z Nation premieres in September on SyFy.
