Yet another resurrection of George A. Romero’s zombie classic now has a date (of the dead) to stalk onto screens.

Syfy has announced that its 10-episode DAY OF THE DEAD will debut October 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. “Inspired by” Romero’s 1985 shocker, the show centers on six strangers fighting to survive the first 24 hours of a zombie invasion. Keenan Tracey, Daniel Doheny, Natalie Malaika, Morgan Holmstrom and Kristy Dawn Dinsmore star; Jed Elinoff and Scott Thomas scripted and served as showrunners, and Steven Kostanski (THE VOID, PG: PSYCHO GOREMAN) directed the first four episodes. Check out the trailer below the poster.
