Z Nation is spreading. Netflix has given an eight-episode first-season order to Black Summer, a spinoff of the popular Syfy drama, THR reveals:
The streaming giant has handed out an eight-episode straight-to-series order for drama Black Summer, a spinoff of the Syfy drama for which it has streaming rights.
Black Summer stars Jaime King (Hart of Dixie) as a mother who is torn from her daughter and embarks upon a harrowing journey, stopping at nothing to find her. Thrust alongside a small group of American refugees, she must brave a hostile new world and make brutal decisions during the most-deadly summer of a zombie apocalypse.
Z Nation is currently renewed through Season 5 on Syfy, to premiere fall 2018.
Black Summer ensures the Z Nation franchise lives into 2019 at the very least.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Z Nation Season 6, and the survival status of Black Summer…
