'Z NATION' HIT ZOMBIE SERIES GETS 15 2ND SEASON EPISODES PLUS FIRST 2ND SEASON PHOTOS! STUNNING 'THE SHAMAN' SF MOVIE TRAILER WITH DANNY SHAYLER

'Z NATION' ZOMBIE SERIES
 FIRST SECOND SEASON PHOTOS
We're going sf today, people, starting with the first photos and info from the second season of last year's surprise hit series Z NATION which scored worldwide success bringing zombie apocalypse to SyFy! Since it proved to be a rather big success for the channel, with its mix of humour, action, touching friendship and inventive stories, the second season, which will air sometime this September, will have 15 new episodes which is unusual for SyFy.

MATT CEDENO JOINS THE CAST
The second season will continue following the journey of the zombie apocalypse survivors who are trying to save humanity by taking the only man who might be immune to the virus to a state laboratory. The show's creator Karl Schaefer has promised tones of new characters including Emilio Rivera who will play a new apocalypse survivor alongside Latin hunk Matt Cedeno who will be the new antagonistic member of the survivors' pack.

'THE SHAMMAN' SF TRAILER
 SHAMANS AGAINST COLOSSUS
You can also check out the trailer for sf movie THE SHAMAN starring Danny Shayler set in the dark year 2204, in a world that has seen 73 years of continuous war. The face of conflict has changed. People kill people but they now rely on giant, intelligent battle machines to fight. Meanwhile, mankind has re discovered the arts of magic and Shamanism and the Generals on both sides use well-trained spiritual warriors to face the threat of machines. Shamans have special senses! They believe that every person, animal, plant and object has a soul. When crossing the border to the Netherworld, the Shaman can find this soul and interact with it. They can find and convert the souls of their enemies' giant battle machines in to psychological confrontation. But Shamans are not invulnerable. They are just people and can be killed like anyone else. Shaman Joshua Van Kern and his squire Lene embark on a mission to convert a giant battle colossus!

  1. Hum, I haven't seen Z Nation yet. I'm not sure how I missed that one!

    I like the idea of "The Shaman" but the trailer did nothing for me. :(

    1. Z NATION was really great! I thought it might be too like WALKING DEAD, but it wasn't... it was serious and touching and funny at the same time... and it had really great stories and the cast was rather interesting!

  2. I like the concept of Shamans and I hope they make another film with it in a different light that is not too science fiction. I agree with Southpaw HR Sinclair, there was a lot going on in the trailer, if it weren't for your vivid description of Shamans and its role in the film, I would have skipped it.

    1. yep, that is just the first trailer made for Tribeca Festival. The film doesn't have release date yet, so maybe when it finds a distributor they give us a longer trailer :)

  3. I'm so not a zombie fan, but just for one day it would be fun to get in full hair and makeup mode on a set.

    1. I actually think you might like that show, Debs, it has a lot of your type of humour in it :)

  4. I just checked Netflix and they have Z Nation. I just put it in my queue and will watch it tonight. I did try to watch The Walking Dead, but it was just too cheaply made. It also got boring and repetitive. I made it through the second season and won't watch any more of it.

    Shaman looks like it is a well made film. It also looks like a mixture of Sci-fi and Fantasy as it has themes and elements from both genres.

    1. PS Vincent just finished his picture of Wolverine. It turned out beautifully. I'd like him to do one of Gerard Butler in 300. Maybe if we both ask him nicely......

    2. Can't say me agrees with you on WALKING DEAD, dear :) Z NATION is probably even cheaper in production, but it has such fun stories and also the deeper ones... you just have to watch it with open mind and heart :) I like it when a series presents me with situations which I've never thought of before and makes me think about it from the moral or human point of view... which both TWD and Z NATION did for me.

      Vincent charges all his pictures, dear :) But he really is outstandingly talented... I deeply admire him! He is my fave Belgian :)

    3. I watched the first episode of Z Nation. It starts out farther along after the zombie outbreak the TWD and that's okay with me. Beginning with the search for a vaccine was a good place to start. The horror of what must be resorted to was shocking, but realistic.

      The only thing I didn't like was when that baby turned into a zombie. It will be interesting to see how they develop the characters along the way.

    4. there are no more babies after that, fortunatelly. I think you might actually enjoy the humour of Z NATION... they have a rather chilled and relaxed humour in between themselves and the fun thing is that they're all ordinary people. Some episodes were really intriguing, some less so. It shows what kind of people would appear around us if there was anarchy and no rules and no law to keep us ordered.
      Dahlink, what did hubby think of Hershell? If he watched TWD with you?

  5. I'm not too into the whole zombie thing, it's too popular now

    1. but also fun because it puts survivors in psychologically and morally deep situations and makes you think about it

    2. And it's good for us miniature painters as there are so many zombie and survivor figures available now.

      Dahlink, I just bought the sexiest survivor figure out there. Oh my God, but he's gorgeous and I love him so much I bought the resin master of the sculpt.

    3. ooh, should be fun for you to paint him, dear!

  6. I liked the humour in Z Nation.
    The Shaman looks interesting. Hopefully they don't go too cerebral ;)

    1. it was quite a fun humour! I liked the balance between humour, which wasn't over the top, and depth.

  7. Well, I guess I better add Z Nation to my Netflix queue. I wasn't sure if that one was going to make it, but looks like it's here to stay.

    1. I enjoyed it... there were maybe one or two a bit too bizarre episodes, but the rest were both thoughtful and fun at the same time.

  8. what does the "z" stand for... i haven't watched much of any shows. the wife and i been catching up on 11 seasons of ncis, which fills up many hours. next hannibal, then criminal minds... the list goes on. so if the new stuff survives then we will catch up. :)

    1. Wait, what? Zombie master doesn't know? ZOMBIE NATION! It's based on the book or comics, methinks. I think you'd like it... even the music in it!

  9. Why aren't zombies vegetarians, Dezz? They'd be less violent that way.
