Syfy has renewed Z Nation for a third season, set to premiere in 2016.
Z Nation takes place 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 its second season, the series averages 1.5 million total viewers per episode (Live +7).
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). This season, Emilio Rivera (Sons of Anarchy) appears as a recurring guest star.
Karl Schaefer (Eerie Indiana, Eureka, The Dead Zone) is executive producer and showrunner. The series is produced by The Asylum.
Z Nation Fridays at 10 p.m. ET on Syfy.
