It’s grown old hat to accuse Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin of stalling on the franchise’s sixth installment The Winds of Winter, most recently by the revered author’s Sharknado cameo, so we have good news and bad. Martin will put in a zombified appearance on Syfy’s Z Nation, but may also finally drop Winter in 2016, according to reports.
This past week we've had the 'Walking Dead' season 5 trailer to obsessively pore over until its October premiere, but what if we can only wait until September? See what Syfy comes up with in the first trailer for its own take on the zombie genre, as the outbreak of 'Z Nation' hits this September!
Whether or not you believe zombies have passed their cultural moment in the sun and begun to putrefy, we were intrigued to see Syfy getting in on 'The Walking Dead''s game with the development of new original series 'Z Nation.' Now, the first cast from the all-new series have shambled their way out, among them 'Constantine''s Harold Perrineau, 'Supernatural' vet DJ Qualls, Tom Everett Scott and more.
We've seen the Syfy development wheels turning a bit of late with last week's official pickup of the TV-adapted '12 Monkeys,' but this might be the cable network's most intriguing prospect yet. Syfy will follow 'The Walking Dead' into zombie land with a series order for 'Z Nation,' its own corner of the apocalypse that borrows a few pages from 'World War Z,' as well.
