Though The Walking Dead steals most of the headlines when it comes to zombies these days, BBC launched its own undead series last season — and here’s the first look at its freaky return.

Dubbed In the Flesh, the short-run series was one of the most innovative takes we’ve seen on the zombie trope. Ever. The series follows a city in the wake of a zombie cure, as the government attempts to reintegrate the undead back into the general population of the living. It was fresh, innovative and unsettling in its own weird way. We can't wait for the next run.

The first trailer for season two looks to up the ante quite a bit, and it seems war is brewing between the undead and the living. It looks like a nice evolution of the first season, which really hit its stride by the finale.

The series returns Saturday, May 10, on BBC Three in the U.K. No word on a U.S. air date yet, but we’d expect BBC America to pick it up at some point, much as they did the first season.
