Zombies invade the UK! A new TV show!!!

It was only a matter of time before zombie shows started popping up in places other than AMC.

In a few weeks, the BBC will debut In The Flesh, a zombie show with a twist. Set in the aftermath of a zombie outbreak in the U.K., the series will follow Kieren (Luke Newberry), a dead teenager who was resurrected as a zombie and has since been rehabilitated somehow by the British government (they apparently call his condition "Partially Deceased Syndrome"). As Kieren attempts to re-enter society (while surrounded by people whose friends and relatives he just ate), he continues to struggle with the old urges that come with being a shambling undead cannibal.

Check out the trailer below. The show is set to debut on BBC Three starting Sunday, March 17. No word on when (or if) it'll hit the States.


Personally I am excited. The British produced one of my favorite Zombie mini-series ever, Dead Set, so I shall watch this.

when is this zombie trend going to end? I've never been less interested in a fad before in my damn life. Vampires were more interesting than this shit.

zombie genre feels dead (pun intended) i don't like the ideas they use to try and twist the zombie narrative

it feels a bit like people where slightly more enthusiastic and inventive with the vampire trend

zombies are awesome though, my favourite of all the supernatural 'fads' (one which hasn't stopped in over 40 years)
