Other Options

A group comes together through circumstance to get the only known survivor of the zombie virus that has wiped out much of the population to a lab in California that hopes to use his blood to create cure for the virus.

But, if you’re a fan of The Walking Dead, yet enjoy the action episodes more than the character stuff and wish the group had a purpose more than just trying to survive, then this could be the show for you. Are you looking forward to tonight’s premiere?
