Netflix To Release Haunting New Zombie Apocalypse Series 'Black Summer'

Netflix To Release Haunting New Zombie Apocalypse Series 'Black Summer'

Fans of World War Z and 28 Days Later better clear their schedule as Netflix prepares to release its new zombie apocalypse series, Black Summer, as it looks even better than The Walking Dead.

While TWD showed us what a terrifying post-apocalyptic world filled with zombies walking around would look like, Black Summer is set to show us what it would be like in the early days of such an outbreak.

Jamie King plays Rose, a mum who gets separated from her daughter as the zombie outbreak takes hold. Rose bands together with a group of people to try and find her daughter.

The trailer certainly looks incredible; there's definitely going to be some jump scares that will send you over the couch.

Black Summer creator Karl Schaefer is no stranger to working on a zombie series, as he previously worked on Z Nation - however, he says the new Netflix won't be anything like ehis previous series as it will focus more on the 'old school' type of zombie horror, even though it's technically a Z Nation spin-off.

Jodi Binstock is one of the producers for the series, she's told Mandy: "Black Summer is referred to in Z Nation as the summer where everything went to hell, so that is where Black Summer picks up.

"This show is not tongue-in-cheek, it's very, very serious: it's as if the zombie apocalypse really happened in 2018 and explores what that would be for all of us. It's a very unique style that I think people will really respond to.

"It's only told from the point of view of the characters - we don't learn anything that the characters don't and it's fantastically shot. The dynamics of the way that they have crafted the storytelling is very cinematic and I think people will really respond to it."

The first eight-part season is set to land on Netflix on 11th April.
