Perusing the upcoming slate of shows currently in development or production over at Syfy, there are definitely a few popular types of shows that the network hopes to capitalize on. Among others, there’s a clone drama (Clone), a time travel adventure (12 Monkeys), and, of course, zombies. Their upcoming entry into the undead sweepstakes, Z Nation is set to debut this September, and now we have our first good look at the series.

Aside from the bare bones of the story and set up, you don’t learn too much about Z Nation from this trailer. Action and post-zombie mayhem are the key features in this video, that and a zombie baby. You can bet their going to play that card in order to traumatize a character that can’t believe he has to shoot a baby in the head. People seem to have a big problem doing that.

The Walking DeadAMC’s The Walking Dead always has a strong presence at San Diego Comic-Con, and this year was no different. The smash hit zombie drama revealed a new trailer and that the first six minutes of the season five premiere are apparently going to be totally bananas. But there is a lot more waiting for fans when the show returns on Sunday, October 12.

We weren’t at Comic-Con this year, we’re afraid of crowds and bright colors, but our dear friends at Cinema Blend aren’t the scaredy-cats that we are, and we all over the massive nerd gathering. They got the opportunity to sit down at roundtables with some of the writers and producers of The Walking Dead, and were able to gather some insight into the upcoming season, as well as some news on the long-gestating spin off.

The Walking Dead Season 5 Opens With A Scene That Shocks Even The Cast And Crew

Walking DeadSeason four of AMC’s The Walking Dead was far and away the best the zombie drama has ever been, especially the final eight episodes. Between that momentum, and the grim, intense trailer for season five that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, it’s a good time to be a fan. Last season ended on a cliffhanger, and we’ve been promised time and again that the new episodes will “hit the ground running.” Now thanks to showrunner Scott Gimple, director/producer/special effects guru Greg Nicotero, and some of the cast, we have a better idea of what that “running” will look like, and it is going to be rough.

We weren’t able to be at Comic-Con, but our big sister Cinema Blend was all over that mess, and they had a chance to sit down with Gimple, Nicotero, and others to chat about the upcoming season. According to their talk, the first six minutes of the premiere episode is going to be totally bonkers. Star Andrew Lincoln, who plays Rick Grimes, the leader of a rag tag group of survivors trying to navigate a zombie apocalypse, says the cast and crew were all shocked by what goes down. He says, “All of us were just dumbstruck and said, ‘We’re not going to be able to show this. We’re not going to be able to show this.’…We are showing it.”

The Walking DeadThat massive spectacle that San Diego Comic-Con has become kicks off in earnest today with tons of high-profile upcoming movies and television shows stopping by to show off their wares. Being based on an actual comic book, AMC’s hit zombie drama The Walking Dead has always had a strong presence, and this year isn’t going to be any different. The show took over a portion of “America’s Finest City” to give fans a slice the post-apocalyptic zombie excitement.

We aren’t lucky, or driven enough to be at Comic-Con this year (we’re afraid of large crowds), but our fabulous older sibling Cinema Blend is all over the place, and they were able so snap these photos of the badass Walking Dead display. Fans who watched season four of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and company trying to make their way through the zombie-filled world will recognize these big set pieces.
