KEITH ALLAN, MURPHY I’m a unique sort of character within the apocalypse. KEITH ALLAN PLAYS MURPHY ON Z-NATION. IN THE FIRST SEASON— MURPHY WAS GIVEN A VACCINE AND THEN BITTEN BY ZOMBIES.

HE MAY BE THE ONLY UNDEAD CHARACTER TODAY— BUT WE’RE BETTING WE’LL SEE PLENTY MORE FLESH EATERS IN THE UPCOMING SEASON. KELLITA SMITH The second season absolutely takes the bar up another level, it’s a lot more action a lot more excitement we get into a lot of conflicts. ON THE SHOW— THIS GROUP IS TRAVELING ACROSS THE COUNTRY. BUT IN REALITY— ALL THE FILMING IS HAPPENING RIGHT HERE IN SPOKANE. ANASTASIA BARAnOVA, ADDY You can imagine it’s quite a challenge to get a sense of the whole country in one place but we’ve gotten really lucky and everyone in Spokane has been really lovely and really accomodating to us just showing up and taking over. JULIE HOLLAND, NORTHERN QUEST CASINO Spokane has sort of embraced the film industry and it’s bringing a lot of people into the region and bringing attention to a lot of places we know and love. TODAY THAT PLACE IS NORTHERN QUEST CASINO— BUT Z-NATION IS ALSO SET TO FILM AT GLOVER MANSION AND ARBOR CREST. JODI BINSTOCK, PRODUCER You can get every look here from the Palouse, to urban brick buildings. THE ENTIRE COUNTRY – WITHOUT LEAVING THE INLAND NORTHWEST.
