Syfy has penciled some new premiere dates into its datebook.
The fifth season of fan-favorite Haven will premiere on Thursday, September 11 at 10pm, the network announced Friday.
New post-apocalyptic drama Z Nation will debut the following evening, on Friday, September 12 at 10pm. From Eureka executive producer Karl Schaefer and starring Lost's Harold Perrineau, Supernatural's DJ Qualls, and Southland's Tom Everett Scott, the series picks up three years after a zombie virus wipes out much of the country's population as a ragtag team tries to create a vaccine from the only known survivor's blood. (Watch the first teaser here!)
Later in the season, new drama Town of the Living Dead will add even more zombies to Syfy's lineup when it premieres on Tuesday, October 7 at 10pm. The series follows the residents of Jasper, Alabama, who are determined to finally finish the zombie movie they've been working on for six years. The project is based on a local urban legend and centers on a group of friends who are trying to survive a zombie apocalypse in rural Alabama. Interestingly, the logline for this one promises that the amateur filmmakers will "struggle against every obstacle imaginable to get to a final cut of their film… which could someday become a Syfy movie." How... meta?
Long-running reality series Ghost Hunters will celebrate its 10th anniversary and it's 200th episode when it returns on Wednesday, October 8 at 9pm.
And finally, Battlestar Galactica alum Tricia Helfer makes her highly anticipated return to Syfy right before Thanksgiving, when the limited series Ascension bows on Monday, November 24 at 9pm. Also starring Cougar Town's Brian Van Holt, the drama tells the story of a covert U.S. space mission that sent hundreds of men, women, and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Halfway into their journey, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.
