Expanding the zombie apocalypse world, the trailer is already showing off concept art and even a glance of its beloved cast in character.
The trailer features Alexa Mansour playing Hope, Aliyah Royale playing Iris, Nicolas Cantu as Elton, and Hal Cumpston as Silas while Annet Mahendru narrates the scenes flashing by. And those scenes reveal that we might, in fact, be seeing a very different world, one in which people are accustomed to zombies because they grew up with them.
