BCK Online sat down with everyone’s favorite zombie-cheerleader couple, Zed and Addison, played by cast members Meg Donnelly and Milo Manheim, and other cast members of Zombies 2, to talk about their highly anticipated sequel, which will be making its Disney Channel premiere this Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2020.
Zombies 2, set in the newly united town of Seabrook, picks-up with the cheerleader Addison and the zombie football player Zed as they are readying for Seabrook High’s Prawn, the school’s supersized prom. However, when a group of mysterious teenage werewolves, led by Willa, Wyatt and Wynter, unexpectedly arrive in search of an ancient life source buried somewhere in Seabrook, a fearful city council reenacts Seabrook’s anti-monster laws making it impossible for Zed and Addison to attend Prawn together. Of course, the pair, determined to keep their plan to be the first zombie/cheerleader couple to go to the prom, Zed runs for school president against cheer captain, Bucky, in order to change the rules.
While Zed launches into his campaign, Addison is drawn into the werewolves’ circle sensing this might be where she finally fits in. Zed, fearful that he may loose his cheerleader, sabotages Addison’s effort to find out if she really belongs with the pack. When Addison finds out what he has done, she is forced to confront the truth about her identity, zombies, cheerleaders and werewolves, forcing all to discover the real meaning of community and acceptance.
The original Zombie 2 was a 2018 hit among kids and girls 6-11 and Tweens and girls 9-14, making the telecast a #1 cable hit. The show will feature both old and new faces, including Trevor Tordjman as Bucky, Kylee Russell as Eliza, Carla Jeffery as Bree, James Godfrey as Bonzo and Kingston Foster as Zoey. Joining the cast are Chandler Kinney as Willa, Pearce Joza as Wyatt and Ariel Martin (Baby Ariel) as Wynter.
And of course Zombies 2 would not be a hit without a host of new songs and amazing choreography. Want a sneak peek at what you will hear and see?
