'In the Flesh' premiere: BBC America rethinks zombies, and it's very cool

Zombies are pretty much all over pop culture, so it's not hard to feel fatigue with yet another project featuring the undead.But don't let that turn you off of "In the Flesh," a three-part miniseries that premiered Thursday (June 6) on BBC America. (Parts 2 and 3 air Friday and Saturday.) It's a great twist on the usual zombie tale, and it also goes a lot deeper than you'd expect.The zombies of "In the Flesh" aren't really zombies, though -- they're recovering victims of "partially deceased syndrome." The show is set four years after a zombie uprising, and the British government has discovered a way to treat them with a neurological drug that brings them (more or less) back to humanity. That's where we meet Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry), who is about to leave his highly secured treatment facility and go home to his family in the small town of Roarton. One problem: Roarton is... //

‘In the Flesh’ Sneak Peek: See Zombies As You’ve Never Seen Them Before…In Therapy

In the Flesh is not your typical zombie tale. BBC America has released two minutes from the premiere of their three-part zombie event series featuring the undead showing remorse for their kills, discussing zombie rights and preparing to be reintegrated into society. While the support group setting could easily veer into the absurd, In the Flesh appears to be embracing a dark tone that suits the subject matter.

‘In the Flesh’ Season 2 Announced

The three-part BBC mini-series In the Flesh has yet to air here in the US (that will happen on BBC America starting on June 6) and already the series will be returning for a second season. As we reported here and here, ‘In the Flesh’ follows Kieren Walker (Luke Newberry), a teen who comes back from the dead after committing suicide. He and thousands of other zombies (known as the Partially Deceased Syndrome (PDS) sufferers) are rehabilitated and medicated before being returned to their homes. Unfortunately, before they were treated, the zombies were part of a brutal battle that left many humans dead and as a result communities are suspicious of the rehabilitated undead, making Kieren’s attempt to rejoin the living all the more complicated.
