Season 3 of ‘ZNation’ is coming and they’re kicking things off with a movie. That’s right, a movie. The two-hour special goes back in time and we have a sneak peek (below).
We’re starting with what I like to refer to as a version of a Doctor Who Christmas special, we’re starting with a little Apocalypse special,” teased Anastasia Baranova, aka Addy, per Enstars. “We’re going back in time…I won’t say when, but we are going back in time to some time. Basically there’s a story in and of itself, but it also sets up what happens in Season 3.
Murphy and the gang won’t actually be time traveling, but will take place before the season 2 finale, according to SyFy. The movie will also introduce fans to the villain of season 3.
The fun zombie series stars Keith Allan as Murphy, the only man immune to the zombie virus, thanks to being used as a lab-rat in prison. Kellita Smith, Russell Hodgkinson, Nat Zang, and Anastasia Baranova’s characters are tasked with getting Murphy to California so that a cure can be developed. Matt Cedeno is along for the ride. DJ Qualls plays the role of Citizen Z, helping guide the group to their destination, via radio. Along the way the group has faced thieves, cults and bad guys, not to mention bounty hunters out to bring Murphy in in hopes of getting a reward.
‘ZNation’ has a team of clever writers including Craig Engler, Karl Schaefer, Jennifer Derwingson, Daniel Schaefer, John Hyams, Abram Cox, Dan Merchant and others. John Hyams, Abram Cox, Dan Merchant and Alexander Yellen are just a few of the directors for the series.
‘ZNation’ will return September 16th. In the meantime, visit SyFy, check out past episodes of ZNation and play the ‘Find Murphy’ game.
