We’ve got some first look images to share from the Z-Nation pilot episode.

The new zombie series comes to Syfy from Friday, September 12 at 10PM, and follows the journey of the last known survivor of the zombie plague as he travels across post-apocalyptic America in order to deliver his curative blood to the last viral lab on the continent. Will he make it? Can his blood really save humanity, and what dark secret is he hiding?

In Z Nation, three years have passed since the zombie virus has gutted the country, and a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood.

Although the antibodies he carries are the world’s last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind’s survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America.

Z Nation stars Harold Perrineau (“Oz,” “Lost”) Tom Everett Scott (“Southland,” “Beauty and the Beast”), DJ Qualls (“Supernatural”), Michael Welch (“Twilight” trilogy), Kellita Smith (“The Bernie Mac Show”) Anastasia Baranova (“The Darkness II”), Russell Hodgkinson (“Big Fish”) and Keith Allan (“Rise of the Zombies”).

Karl Schaefer (“Eerie Indiana,” “Eureka,” “The Dead Zone”) serves as executive producer and showrunner.

Acclaimed action director John Hyams (“Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning”) directed the pilot.
