Syfy Renews ‘Z Nation’ for Third Season
Syfy’s zombie series Z Nation will return for a third season of post-apocalyptic madness.
Syfy and The Asylum announced that the series has been renewed, meaning that fans can look forward to more zombie road trippin’ action…15 hours more to be exact.
Z Nation stars Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show), DJ Qualls (Supernatural, The Man in the High Castle), Keith Allan (Rise of the Zombies), Anastasia Baranova (The Darkness II), Russell Hodgkinson (Big Fish), Nat Zang and Matt Cedeño (Devious Maids). Set three years after a zombie virus gutted the country, a team of everyday heroes is tasked with transporting the only known survivor of the plague across the country to the last functioning viral lab in post-apocalyptic America, in hopes of using his blood to create a cure for the virus.
In addition to averaging 1.5 million total viewers per episode and being the network’s most social original series in total social engagements, Z Nation has also seen a wide array of guest stars, with more on the way. This season, Emilio Rivera (Sons of Anarchy) appears as a recurring guest star and upcoming guests include Missi Pyle, Doug Jones, Anthony Michael Hall and Gina Gershon.
A 15-hour third season is slated to premiere on Syfy in 2016, but you can watch new episodes of Z Nation‘s second season, Fridays at 10/9c on Syfy.
