The wait is over for fans of super zombie drama as the hit show returns to UK

The wait is over for fans of super zombie drama Z Nation as the hit show returns to UK screens this week with the third season premiere exclusively on Pick.

On Tuesday 11th October the series kicks off with the first of a two-part special at 22.00. The show’s creators, Karl Schaefer and Craig Engler, take us back in time as our heroes protect a town against a new enemy, in a plot that sets up the conflict for Season 3. The series proper then starts on October 25 at 22.00.

The show launched originally on Pick in July 2015 with a 532k audience and has become the channel’s most successful drama. Seasons 1 and 2 reached a total audience of 3.7million with an average audience of 391k per episode.

Commenting on the deal, Director of Pick and Challenge Stephen Ladlow said: “Blending drama, horror and humour like no other show, Z Nation is a fantastic addition to the zombie genre and has built a large and loyal fan base over the past two seasons, We are delighted to have secured the UK first run of season three exclusively for Pick viewers and can’t wait for the mayhem to begin.”

Z Nation is a tent pole event for Pick which unveiled a strong brand refresh in June this year, cementing its position as the home of instantly enjoyable telly. The announcement that the channel has picked up Z Nation plays to one of the channel’s core strands, showing great ‘Popcorn Drama’ alongside ‘Real Life Emergency’ and ‘Rescued Animals’ programming.
