After wrapping up its first season in the US last month, it has been announced that Zoo will be back for a second round. The adaptation of James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge’s 2012 horror novel was said, by CBS Entertainment President, Glen Geller, to be filled with “thrilling stories that clicked with audiences each week”. He expressed his excitement over the next season in the press release, claiming that it would be the ultimate fight between man and beast.
Starring James Wolk, Billy Burke, Kristen Connolly and Xander Berkeley, the show focuses on people who investigate the strange increase of animal attacks against humans. (Think The Happening, except instead of plants trying to kill humans, it’s the animals – plus a lot more violence and gore).
