Syfy, which hopes to take a leaf out of AMC's "The Walking Dead," has released the first full trailer for its new post-apocalyptic zombie drama series "Z Nation."

"Z Nation," which the network picked up straight to series, follows a story of a band of survivors trekking across the country three years after a zombie virus broke out, Entertainment Weekly reported. They must transport the only known human that seems to have survived a bite from the undead from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab is based.

"Although the antibodies he carries are the world's last, best hope for a vaccine, he hides a dark secret that threatens them all. With humankind's survival at stake, the ragtag band embarks on a journey of survival across three thousand miles of rusted-out post-apocalyptic America," read a portion of the show's description.

"Z Nation's" synopsis sounds promising, but could it be just a copy of the hugely popular "The Walking Dead?"

Comparing the original "The Walking Dead" trailer to "Z Nation's" teaser clip (shown below), the two shows are pretty the same, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Both series present no immediate cure to the plague and both teams of heroes are heading to Washington in an attempt to end the zombie apocalypse. And yes, the two shows also both feature bearded heroes: Andrew Lincoln's Rick Grimes vs. Tom Everett Scott's Garnett.

As for the differences, "The Walking Dead" was much more focused on rebuilding humanity during its first few seasons, rather than finding a cure for the mysterious outbreak, which, on the other hand, seems to be the immediate goal of the protagonists in "Z Nation." In addition, "Z Nation" has this character that appeared to have survived even after being bitten by a zombie, but in the AMC hit show, all humans bitten by the undead eventually turn into a walker.

From the same production company that brings "Sharknado," The Asylum, the series stars Harold Perrineau, Tom Everett Scott, DJ Qualls, Michael Welch, Anastasia Baranova, Russell Hodgkinson and Kellita Smith. Karl Schaefer serves as executive producer and showrunner for the series, while John Hyams directed the pilot, Variety reported.

The initial 13-episode series premieres on Sept. 12 at 10 p.m. on Syfy. "The Walking Dead," on the other hand, returns on Oct. 12, at 9 p.m. on AMC.
