UPDATE: It was just announced today that Z Nation has been renewed by Syfy for a season 2. This is fantastic news! A big congrats to the cast and crew because I know how hard you have worked to put this wonderful show together.
Walker Stalker Con is a convention that is known primarily for its focus on AMC’s mega-hit The Walking Dead. However, this past weekend at the show in Atlanta, if you stayed the entire weekend, there was a great panel late Sunday afternoon on Syfy’s new zombie series Z Nation.
The panel featured Executive Producer and showrunner Karl Schaefer, Executive Producer and Writer Craig Engler, Keith Allan (“Murphy”) and Michael Welch (“Mack”). Here they talked about the evolution of the series, their characters and how they were developed, and also about that heartbreaking episode “Resurrection Z” that aired last Friday.
For those who do not know, the leader of the group of survivors, Charles Garnett (Tom Everett Scott), was killed, which emphasizes even more what Karl Schaefer said earlier in the season that no one is safe. Still, a total buzzkill though.
Anyways, fantastic panel. But for those who could not attend, no worries because we got some good video footage and photos, and so, you can judge for yourself. And, for those who haven’t watch Z Nation — give it a try! It’s frightening and can be gruesome at times, but it also makes you laugh and basically, it’s just a super-fun show to watch.
Z Nation airs on Fridays at 10/9c on Syfy.
