The original was getting tired and old. I gave up on it a long time ago. Not sure if this is a prequel or what but it's pretty good so far. Early days of the zombie sickness, only Cops and first responders have a clue what's happening. Zombies getting shot by cops in public are sparking "black lives matter " style riots! The main characters are a widow, her two older teens and her new man plus his older teen and ex wife. One of the kids is a junkie just to make things more interesting. Lots going on and pretty realistic ( for a zombie series LOL) so far.
