Zombie TV is growing like, well, like a Zombie infestation. After the success of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ came the announcement of The CW’s effort with the Zombie genre: ‘Awakening’.
Now comes the news that two cast members have been announced:
Brian Hallisay, of the horror movie Hostel: Part III, and a number of TV appearances.
Titus Welliver, of the hit shows ‘Lost’ and ‘Deadwood’ will also be joining the cast. He will purportedly play “a mysterious figure with piercing eyes and a dark overcoat who is hunting the zombies behind the first wave of the awakening.”
The show, which will follow two sisters (Meredith Hagner and Lucy Griffiths) who face growing up in the midst of the beginning of a Zombie outbreak.
According to rumor, ‘Awakening’ takes a very different view of how Zombies behave and interact. In this TV series, the ‘Zombies’ live ‘normal lives’, and interact with the living basically like anyone else. They are known as ‘pre-dead’. Eventually, trouble starts, and there is a war between the living and ‘pre-dead’.
Now, there are fears that this show could be the ‘feel good’ zombie series we have all been dreading. Sexy zombies, intellectual Zombies, etc. Tell The CW what you want, or don’t want, to see in the show in the comment section below!
