Z Nation

The Z Nation series begins at a time when a zombie virus has almost completely eradicated humanity. The last hope for a positive change rests on Murphy – the only known survivor of a zombie attack. But the potential savior Murphy carries not only the coveted antibodies in itself, but also a dangerous secret – and a lot of bad mood.

From Season 3 on, the US post-apocalyptic zombie drama series Z Nation by director Karl Schaefer, produced by The Asylum (known from the Sharknado films”), will be released on the M-Square Pictures label. The first two seasons are still distributed and marketed by Universal.

Season 3

In Season 3 of the series, Roberta (Kellita Smith) and the rest of the group are confronted with a new adversary, “The Man” (Joseph Gatt), who is far more powerful and dangerous than anyone else. “The Man” targets all survivors and attacks the city with its army of living dead. In particular Dr. Teller (Frank Boyd) is a thorn in his side. However, “The Man” has a huge following on his side and shows absolutely no mercy. Only Murphy (Keith Allen) manages to escape together with his team. From now on, he will do his utmost to establish his own cult and order in the zombie apocalypse.

Season 4

At the beginning of Season 4, Warren (Kellita Smith) and Murphy (Keith Allan) suddenly find themselves back in “Zona” two years in the future, an apparently safe retreat for super-rich on an island. While the rest of the group must assert themselves against the undead and the Zona military, Warren tries to find a conspiracy on the track. Disturbing dream images of black, rain guide them on a new mission. On their escape, the survivors not only have to solve the grim mystery of Zona, but fight against superzombies that make their previous experiences like a relaxing walk. The fourth season of the cult zombie series hit brings some new variants of the undead plague, such as zombie clowns, super zombies and crazy zombies, the Mad-Zs.

In the fifth and final season, the Z Nation heroes will be dealing with a new zombie phenomenon: the Talker, a talking and thinking zombie genre. Warren (Kellita Smith) slowly regains his strength after the drone crash and gets help from the mysterious Cooper (Mario van Peebles). Meanwhile, the group around Doc (Russell Hodgkinson) and Murphy (Keith Allan) reach Newmerica, where a woman named George (Katy O’Brian) fights for the peaceful coexistence between talkers and humans. But not everyone likes this idea, which very soon leads to a whole series of problems …

Two spectacular guest appearances complete the cast: Katy O’Brian (“The Walking Dead”) and (80s-90s) movie star Mario Van Peebles (“Heartbreak Ridge,” “Damages”, “New Jack City”) ,

The initiators of the Z Nation series, Karl Schaefer and Craig Engler, describe the series as an attempt “to bring the fun back into the zombie genre, which they have become too serious through TV series like “The Walking Dead”. They have succeeded in doing so without any doubt and certainly one of the reasons why Z Nation has been so successful and even the pre-series Black Summer, which is produced exclusively for Netflix in parallel, is currently a quota hit.

rollingstone.de: “Z Nation: Zombies blow Trump the march …”

musikexpress.de: “The apocalypse, speaking zombies as an energy source – brain biscuits? A real madness. But a terrific madness.”
