Syfy Cancels Their Zombie Drama Z NATION After Five Seasons


Syfy have cancelled Z Nation with the show set to end after season 5 according to Producer David Michael Latt.

Z Nation follows a band of zombie-apocalypse survivors attempting to get a man who has an immunity to the virus causing the zombie explosion to the last-known Centers for Disease Control research lab in California.

Here’s Latt’s statement from a stream he did on Periscope.

“We wanted to tell you face to face … that we were not renewed for Season 6. We’re stopping at Season 5. We’re very sad, but we’re also really grateful with the opportunities that we had on the show.This is not the end of anything, this is just the beginning of a lot of things.” 

What he may mean by this is a prequel set with an 8 episode order on Netflix called Black Summer which follows a mother searching for a daughter after the world collapses.

Nation‘s cancellation means its run ends at 68 episodes, with the season finale coming on 9 PM Friday, December 28.
