One week before the Season 5 finale of “Z Nation,“ we learned tonight, Syfy has cancelled the zombie series. In other words, the Season 5 finale will be the *series* finale.
Asylum CEO/series executive producer David Michael Latt announced in a video tonight, “We were not renewed for a Season 6. We’re stopping at Season 5. We’re very sad. We’re also really grateful [for] the opportunities that we had. This is not the end of anything. This is just the beginning of a lot of things. We had a great time. We had a great time with Syfy.”
The final episode, “The End of Everything,” airs Friday night, December 28th.
Starting in Spring 2019, it’s worth noting here, new Netflix series “Black Summer” hails from “Z Nation” co-creator/executive producer Karl Schaefer and the Syfy zombie apocalypse drama’s co-executive producer, John Hyams. Jaime King will star in the series as a mother, torn from her daughter, who embarks upon a harrowing journey, stopping at nothing to find her. Thrust alongside a small group of American refugees, she must brave a hostile new world and make brutal decisions during the most deadly summer of a zombie apocalypse.
