Summary and storyline
Z Nation is an American post-apocalyptic action and horror television drama series that is currently airing on the Syfy channel in the United States. Z Nation was created by Karl Schaefer and Craig Engler. The sci-fi series is produced by The Asylum, Go2 Digital Media and North By Northwest for Syfy and executive produced by Paul Bales, David Michael Latt, David Rimawi and Karl Schaefer. Season 1 of Z Nation debuted on Syfy September 12, 2014.
The highly anticipated Season 2 of Z Nation premiered on the Syfy channelin the US on Friday, September 11, 2015 and it is set to consist of 15 episodes. The season 1 premiere reached 1.58 million total viewers and the debut season of the show has averaged 1.42 million total viewers per episode, making it the cable channel’s highest-rated series in the demo.
Current season and renewal expectations
The premiere episode of season 2 drew in just slightly less than 1 million viewers, which is an almost 40% decline in the viewership if compared year-to-year. Let’s hope that the ratings improve as the season progresses, because at the San Diego Comic Con the creative team said that they have plans for the show for up to seasons 5 and 7. For those plans to become a reality, the ratings will have to hold their ground.

UPDATED November 6, 2015: With season 2 of the popular sci-fi and horror series is in full swing, the Syfy channel made an official announcement today that Z Nation has been renewed for season 3, which will consist of 15 one-hour episodes and premiere sometime in 2016. In its debut season, the zombie series became the highest-rated show on Syfy, but in the current season the ratings have declined and after eight episodes, the show is averaging 0.9 million viewers which is a 37% drop. The network has still made a decision to renew, probably because the series has been its most social original series in total social engagements.
