Basic info and cast
Z Nation is an American post-apocalyptic drama and horror sci-fi series that picks up three years after a deadly zombie virus has annihilated the country. Created by Karl Schaefer and Craig Engler, the series is produced by the masterminds behind Sharknado at The Asylum. Z Nation first aired on SyFy in September 2015, and the most recent third season kicked off on September 16, 2016 with 15 new episodes.
Filmed in Spokane, Washington, Z Nation follows a team of zombie plague survivors who must escort Murphy, a man they believe to be humanity’s last hope, on a cross country trip from New York to California. Murphy unwillingly received a government test vaccine in the days just before society fell apart, and must now play a role in saving mankind. The current season features a new threat to the town residents, when the conflict continues and Murphy begins to realize his new plans for the world with his new gang of blends.
Current season and renewal potential
The highly anticipated season 3 premiered on September 16, 2016 and drew in just over 1 million viewers. That’s perfectly on par with the preceding season, which saw nearly a 40% decline in viewership from its freshman season, which opened to 1.6 million, making it the cable channel’s highest-rated series. So will there be a season 4? The network will need to wait and see how the audience reacts to the rest of the episodes before deciding whether or not to renew. That said, the creative team has been hinting at future plans in earlier statements, revealing the fact that they have enough material for up to seven seasons. High ratings and critical praise aside, the TV series has also become the network’s most socially engaging program across all social media websites, so let’s wait for network announcements.
UPDATED November 30, 2016: Beware, zombie apocalypse will indeed continue into 2017 as Z Nation was just commissioned for a thirteen-episode fourth season, set to air in 2017, on the heels of consistently solid ratings it`s delivered for the network. The gory action series is still airing its third installment on Syfy, with the season finale scheduled for December 16, 2016. Please stay tuned, and we will let you know when the blood-thirsty undead will be overrunning the wastelands in the fourth season of Z Nation.
