Original web series Brains has entered production for its second season. New episodes of the series will come out in September 2016.
Created and written by Bri Castellini and produced by Undead Burrito Productions, Brains is a story about “love, friendship, neuropsychology and zombies”. It is set on a college campus in the aftermath of a three-year zombie apocalypse. Here’s the synopsis:
“23-year-old Alison Sumner is a neuropsychology student with a zombie (Carl Markham) as a best friend, who spends her time doing research about the zombie plague and crushing on a fellow student (Damian Phillips). Alison “vlogs” her quest to seduce her crush as an independent study art project, as well as her life post apocalypse”.
Production for Season 2 started on April 9th in Brooklyn and principal photography will wrap up on June 26th. Season 2 will be composed of 10 episodes between 5-8 minutes long, with an accompanying 10 “minisodes” about 60 seconds long to be released in between each main episode. This season also promises to delve more deeply into the relationships of the characters, as well as the toll the apocalypse has taken on the students and staff.
The cast from Season 1 will be returning, while some other actors are joining in: Andrew Williams as Edgar Davison, Jean Perez as Ben Roscoe and Colin Hinckley as Carl Markham.
