Basic info and cast

Z Nation is an American post apocalyptic drama and horror sci-fi series that picks up three years after the 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 on September 12, 2014.

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 highly anticipated season 2 premiered on September 11, 2015 and drew in just under 1 million viewers. That’s nearly a 40% decline in viewership from its kick off season 1 which opened to 1.6 million, making it the cable channel’s highest rated series.

So will there be a season 3? 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, citing that they have enough material for up to seven seasons. If the show does pick up in ratings, it will likely return with fresh episodes in the Fall of 2016. So far, SyFy has not released any formal announcements regarding a Z Nation season 3 premiere.
