Keeping track of all the horror on TV is becoming a full-time job around here, and one new series that we’ve only mentioned in passing is Syfy’s “Aftermath,” arriving in just a few more weeks. But with the release of its artwork and trailer, the show has definitely gotten our attention…
Serpent gods? Mass vanishings? Demonic possessions and skin walkers? Aw yeah, mama… this ain’t your daddy’s apocalypse!
“Aftermath” was co-created by Glenn Davis and William Laurin (collaborators on “Once a Thief,” “1-800-Missing,” and more), who are also exec producers and share writing duties with Denis McGrath. Jason Stone serves as consulting producer with McGrath and Adriana Maggs.
Two episodes were directed by Kaare Andrews (Altitude, Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero), who wrote on Facebook: “My episodes air in November! This has been my first year working in TV and it has been a great experience. Feels like comics in many ways that films do not. Can’t wait to share my crazy episodes.”
Stone (The Calling), James Marshall (“Smallville”), April Mullen (“Killjoys”), and Stefan Pleszczynski (“Supernatural,” “Being Human”) also spent time behind the camera for a couple of episodes each.
“Aftermath” Episode 1.01 debuts on Tuesday, September 27, at 10/9c, following the season premiere of “Channel Zero: Candle Cove,” another new Syfy project we’re keeping our eyes on. Could this be the resurgence of the network? Stay tuned!
About “Aftermath” Season 1:
A new 13-episode original co-production produced by Halfire Entertainment in association with Syfy and Space, “AFTERMATH” centers on one family – Karen (Anne Heche; “Hung,” “Men in Trees”) and Joshua Copeland (James Tupper; “Revenge,” Grey’s Anatomy”) and their children (Dana, Brianna, and Matt). The Copelands battle for survival after civilization comes to an apocalyptic end triggered by massive storms, meteor strikes, and earthquakes—and they are faced not only with plague, but the rise of supernatural creatures.
