If you are fond of watching web series, then you must be liking Black Summer, a Canadian drama series created by John and Karl. Season 1 came two years ago on Netflix in April containing eight episodes. The series has been produced by an American Independent film company. 

Let me tell you it is also behind the production behind the popular American action horror TV series Z Nation that aired on Syfy. Hyams and Abram are the main persons behind the writing and direction of Black Summer episodes, especially the added ones. 

The Canadian series shows the separation of a mother from her daughter at the time of Zombie upheaval. Critics gave a modest approval to it. The filming of the series has been shot mostly in locations in Canada. Two years ago, Netflix came up with the new second season having eight episodes. 

Three years ago, Karl, the creator of the Black Summer series once spoke during an event in San-Diego. He said the action-drama show takes place before the upheaval and is very eerie and horrifying. 

Contrary to it, Z Nation displays a different representation of zombie upheaval drama, but it is not the same case with the prequel. According to him, Black Summer is a series concept. It seems as if zombie upheaval has taken place three years ago.
