With the Walking Dead coming to an end soon the zombie genre has been on the back burner a bit more as of late. We have not been as inundated with the undead like we were a few years ago.

SyFy is ready to change that by ordering a 10-episode series of ‘Day of the Dead.’ Yes, that same ‘Day of the Dead’ that George A. Romero brought to life in 1985.

Per Variety: “The remake will tell the intense story of six strangers trying to survive the first 24 hours of an undead invasion. It is described as an ode to Romero’s famous flesh-eaters that reminds us that sometimes all it takes to bring people together is a horde of hungry zombies trying to rip them apart.”

The showrunners will also be the writers of the series led by Jed Elinoff  and Scott Thomas. No word yet on an official release date.
