The zombie road trip comedy Z Nation is coming back for a fifth season on SYFY, producer David Michael Latt confirmed on Twitter today. "THANK  YOU #ZNATION FANS - WE'VE BEEN RENEWED FOR A 5TH SEASON," he wrote. "How could @SYFY say no? #ITSAFANTHING !" He went on to say that production on Season 5 would begin in 2018. The official account for the show thanked the fans and crew for the renewal.

Z Nation tells the story of an immune patient to the zombie virus, which has wiped out a good majority of America. A group of everyday folks transports the patient from New York to a lab in California — it's like an epic combination of The Walking Dead and Zombieland.

Tonight is the two-hour Season 4 finale, "The Black Rainbow," at 10 p.m.
