Move over, The Walking Dead: As you guys may already know, Syfy is getting its own zombie series, and it just nabbed some Lost and Supernatural alums along the way.

TV Line reports that Harold Perrineau (Lost, Constantine), Tom Everett Scott (Southland) and DJ Qualls (Supernatural) have been cast in Syfy’s upcoming series Z Nation.

Syfy is putting their own spin on the zombie genre as the 13-episode series follows a team of everyday heroes three years after a zombie virus has devastated the whole country.

Perrineau (who is, by the way, still very much a Constantine series regular) will play Hammond, the leader of a group heading west from New York to California, where they must transport the only known survivor of the zombie plague, who is their only hope for a vaccine.

Scott will play Hammond’s second-in-command, Garnett, while Qualls has been cast in the role of computer hacker Citizen Z, who joins our ragtag group of heroes in their mission and helps them cross the zombie-infested country.

Michael Welch (theTwilight saga) and Kellita Smith (The Bernie Mac Show) also star in Z Nation, which is set to air in the fall.

Are you guys excited about the casting of Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott and DJ Qualls in Z Nation?
