Will Fans Get What They Want?
As the 4th season of the witty zombie show, Z Nation, rapidly approaches its end, fans across the nation are feeling a little antsy about whether the SYFY Channel will renew the fan favorite show for a 5th season.
Airing on Friday’s at 9/8c on Syfy Channel, an NBC Universal cable channel, the show has seen a small drop in ratings throughout the fourth season, but it remains one of the highest rated scripted cable shows for the 18-49 demographics on Syfy, falling second only to popular show The Magicians. Created by Craig Engler and Karl Schaefer and produced by The Asylum, the show originally aired in 2015 and has become a fan favorite for those who like zombie shows.
Z Nation focuses on a group of survivors played by Kellita Smith, Keith Allan, Russel Hodgkinson, Nat Zang, Anastasia Baranova and DJ Qualls among others who have joined together to find the cure to the zombie plague. As the group travels across the country, they inevitably battle not only blood thirsty zombies, but they’re on an endless wild ride as they run into odd groups of scary people including crazy military guys, a band of Juggalos, redneck freaks, nuns and other amusing and at times downright creepy folks with a penchant for gore.
Unlike other zombie shows that you may have seen where the focus is to stay safe and find a place that is zombie free to start a new life, this show takes the zombie apocalypse to a whole new level as we see tons of the expected zombie gore, but also a great deal of humor and action as well as plenty of dramatic scenes as we see the cast show love to family and friends.
While fans may know that ratings matter when it comes to keeping a show afloat, it is safe to say that they have made it loud and clear to those who have the ultimate say at the Syfy Channel and NBC Universal that they won’t take no for an answer when it comes to renewing the show for a fifth season.
Let’s see what fans are saying on Twitter about renewing their favorite show:

Season Four Is Winding Down and Fans Want Season Five!
Z Nation fans still have a few episodes (4 to be exact) to go before the end of the season arrives. At this time, we can only hope that those who make the decision on renewing or dropping will make the right choice and keep the show going.
Whether you’re already a Z Nation fan or one that just hasn’t been able to watch the show yet, be sure to tune in Friday at 9/8c on SYFY to see what the gang gets into. No matter what it is, it is guaranteed to be wild and crazy with a hint of gore on the side!
