"Z Nation," the upcoming zombie action-horror series on Syfy, has announced its cast. The show is being produced by The Asylum, the company behind "Sharknado," and has lined up some heavy hitters to fight off the zombie hordes.

Set three years after a zombie virus ravaged the United States, "Z Nation" will star Harold Perrineau ( "Lost"), "Tom Everett Scott ( "Beauty and the Beast") and DJ Qualls ( "Legit"). They'll be joined by Michael Welch, Kellita Smith, Anastasia Baranova, Russell Hodgkinson and Keith Allan.

In the series, the ensemble will be moving the last survivor of the zombie apocalypse from New York to California, where the only functioning viral lab awaits. Hopefully that untainted blood will lead to a cure, but he holds a dark secret of his own.

"Z Nation" premieres in the fall on Syfy.
