In The Flesh Series Two Premiere Tonight

We can’t get enough of the undead, as proven by the return of this popular BAFTA-nominated zombie drama.

Back for a gripping second series, it follows the group of PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers who, nine months since tragedy struck, have now been tentatively accepted into the small community of Roarton.

Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry) is even doing shifts at the Legion pub, and is pleased at the return of his BDFF – best dead friend forever – Amy Dyer (Emily Bevan).

But trouble is brewing from the pro-living party, Victus.

Emmett Scanlan, who played baddie Brendan Brady in Hollyoaks for three years, is joining the cast as Simon, a charismatic disciple of the Undead Prophet.

“Doing the show was a no-brainer for me, no pun intended,” laughs the 35-year-old.

“I’m a zombie fan, and most actors want to be in a vampire series or movie.”

After this, Emmett is off to film series two of BBC’s drama The Fall, due this autumn.


First series was brilliant! I predict a lot of tears as the second series goes on. The first series finale left me a mess.
