‘Brains’ Season 2 Set to Premiere on September 19
In September 2015, Undead Burrito Productions released the first ten episode season of its original web series Brains. The series follows college neuropsychology student Alison Sumner as she navigates the dating world postzombie apocalypse. The season ended on a cliffhanger, but don’t fret: Season 2 is set to premiere on YouTube on September 19th, 2016.
Brains is an original web series set after a three year zombie apocalypse on a college campus. 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.
Bri Castellini returns as Alison , and welcomes back Marshall Taylor Thurman as Damian, Masha Danilenko as Greta, and Kmur Hardeman as Professor Heather Sherman, as well as a number of other familiar supporting castmates. Colin Hinckley replaces Connor Bowen as Carl, the zombie best friend, in Season 2, and is joined by new main cast members Jean Perez as Ben and Andrew Williams as Edgar. Production began April 9th in Brooklyn and wrapped June 26th.
Season 2 promises to bring all the same fun and heart as Season 1, with dark new twists and tons of new zombies. The new season will still be comprised of 10 main episodes between 58 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, and the toll the apocalypse has taken on the students and staff. There are also five brand new transmedia accounts set to begin posting inworld extra content as soon as the series begins airing.
