Syfy Zombie Series Z Nation Casts Lost, Southland, Supernatural Alums

Syfy is getting in on the zombie craze, and as such has announced the cast of its upcoming action-horror series, Z Nation.

Harold Perrineau (Lost), Tom Everett Scott (Southland) and DJ Qualls (Supernatural) have joined the 13-episode series, which follows a team of everyday heroes three years after a zombie virus has devastated the country. Together, the group must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, as he is their only hope for a vaccine.

Perrineau will play Hammond, the leader of the group headed west. Scott portrays Garnett, Hammond’s second-in-command, while Qualls has been cast as Citizen Z, a computer hacker who joins the team and helps them navigate the zombie-infested country. UPDATE: A WBTV rep assures TVLine that Perrineau is very much a series regular on NBC’s Constantine, premiering Oct. 24.

Michael Welch (Twilight trilogy) and Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show) will also star in the series.

Currently in production in Spokane, Wash., Z Nation debuts in the fall.

    I would definitely be interested in watching this, sounds pretty exciting :)

  2. wordsmith says:

    Is Perrineau not a regular on Constantine? I suppose it would be easy enough to swap in a new character to replace him.

  3. Jax&Juice's Girl says:

    Really?…..The Walking Dead(one of my many fave shows!) is kicking ass and it continues to do so. If syfy puts this show on the sunday time slot w/TWD it won’t stand a chance.

    • reccer says:

      Syfy usually designates their scripted shows to Mondays or Fridays, so I doubt they would put it on Sundays.

  4. Suhail says:

    But Harold also co-stars on Constantine. I guess he exited or is being replaced

  5. L says:

    How does this affect H.P,’s role on Constantine? The Pilot suggested he’d be a regular/serious recurring player.

  6. God says:

    So, he won’t be a regular for Constantine then? Guess, he’ll die in the pilot.

  7. wordsmith says:

    Are people doing this to be funny, or do they not realize that we’re all posting the exact same thing?

  8. Craig says:

    Jax&Juice’s Girl, Syfy typically does not air original programming Sunday nights and dout they’d put this head-to-head with TWD

  12. Z Nation: No it’s not The Walking Dead, but it’s scary and exciting. I like the cast, bummed
    That Harrold Perruneau may be gone. I’m going to watch it, looking forward to what this show has to offer. TANI92163
