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.
Word is out that Z Nation has been cancelled by Syfy and will end its run after its current fifth season. Executive producer David Michael Latt broke the news to fans with a video message posted on his Twitter account confirming that there will be no Season 6.
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. On the air since 2014, the zombie drama is the longest-running scripted original currently in the cable network's roster.
The show will sign off for good with its series finale, fitting titled "The End of Everything", on December 28.
