Z Nation is set three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country, and a team of everyday heroes must transport 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 hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across post-apocalyptic America.
Syfy announced today that Z Nation has been renewed for a fifth season. The good news comes on the same day as the zombie drama's Season 4 finale, which aired in a super-sized two-hour block for the first time in the show's history.
Set in a post-zombie apocalypse, Z Nation follows a group of everyday heroes trying to save humanity as they search for a cure for the virus. Now at over 50 total episodes, the series has been a reliable performer for the cable network over the course of its run, regularly ranking as one its top-rated originals.
While no details have been released on what to expect in Season 5, a tweet from executive producer David Michael Latt showed an image stating, "The Reset Begins". Look for Season 5 of Z Nation in the fall of 2018.
