Netflix is bringing a zombie series back from the dead, much to the delight of horror fans. On its official YouTube page, the popular streaming series has released the official trailer for Black Summer, a prequel series based on Z Nation (which was recently cancelled by Syfy after five seasons.) The trailer can be viewed below.
Expanding the Z Nation universe is welcome news to the rabid fan-base of the zombie series, who were still reeling from the cancellation bombshell from last December. Black Summer will star Jaime King (My Bloody Valentine, Sin City) as a young mother named Rose. In the earliest days of the zombie apocalypse, the aftermath of which we viewed through the Z Nation lens, Rose must journey and fight her way through the carnage to find her daughter in the increasingly desolate and dangerous wasteland. Banding together with a group of Americans, the survivors must work together to find their loved ones while fighting the un-dead…..and even each other. The show will also star Sal Velez Jr. (FX’s Mayans M.C.) as William Velez, who appears to be an ally based on the trailer sequences.
