From the press release:
Z-Whackers at the ready! Syfy’s action-horror series Z Nation returns for Season 2 on Friday, September 11 at 10PM (ET/PT) with 15 brand new episodes. The action-horror series, produced by The Asylum, is about the epic struggle to save humanity following a zombie apocalypse.
In Z Nation, three years have passed since the zombie virus gutted the country. A team of everyday heroes must transport Murphy (Keith Allan), the only known survivor of the plague, from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last and best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. The team’s efforts seemingly shudder to a halt when Murphy escapes their escort and sets off a series of nuclear weapons in the process.
Season 2 picks up mere moments after the nukes launch and it’s every man for him or herself when the team splits up and tries to outrun the impending blast. Meanwhile, in the Arctic, Citizen Z (DJ Qualls) finds himself battling thawed zombies and unable to communicate with the team.
In a desperate attempt to help them out on their quest to get to California and the CDC, Citizen Z issues an on air bounty for Murphy. Suddenly everyone wants a piece of “The Murphy,” including a mysterious and deadly bounty hunter, Vasquez (Matt Cedeño).
This season, the team will encounter new zombie varieties – including “Blasters” (mutated by radioactive fallout) and “Phytos” (a zombie and plant hybrid) – face off against a cartel, discover the existence of “Z-Weed,” witness a birth and more…
Z Nation stars Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show), DJ Qualls (Supernatural, The Man in the High Castle), Michael Welch (Twilight trilogy), Keith Allan (Rise of the Zombies), Anastasia Baranova (The Darkness II), Russell Hodgkinson(Big Fish), Pisay Pao (The Whole Truth), Nat Zang and Matt Cedeño (Devious Maids).
