13 hours ago

With the two-episode season 4 finale of Z Nation airing tonight, fans don't have to wait to see if the living dead series will return, as it's officially been announced that the post-apocalyptic show has been renewed for a fifth season by Syfy.

The news of the Z Nation renewal was officially announced by executive producer David Michael Latt on Twitter and on the show's official Facebook page.

While a specific premiere date has not yet been announced, Z Nation has traditionally premiered in September and aired its finales in December over the past four seasons, so fans can expect a similar schedule for season 5 of the series.

Mechagodzilla has become something of a series icon, up there with King Ghidorah and Mothra as one of the most recognizable non-Godzilla kaiju in the franchise. Yet all legends have to start somewhere, and for Mechagodzilla, it was in the fourteenth film of the franchise, Jun Fukuda’s aptly titled Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla (1974).

Taking place presumably sometime after the previous year’s Godzilla vs. Megalon (although continuity was never the Showa series’ high point), Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla takes place in a Japan already rocked by monster attacks, with a »
