A Peek Into The Storyline
The plot is based on apocalyptic events that happened in Kent high school. The story begins with the ordinary Saturday of students reporting for detention, going about routine activities like basketball coaching, music rehearsal, etc. Suddenly signals for evacuation drills are given and students are closed off in the school.
Soon it is revealed that due to an explosion in a nearby chemical plant, people of the town have been transformed into mutated “freaks”. The survivors have to stay alive and fight for their lives. It also has the element of teen soap including romance, rivalries, warfare which makes this show a complete teenage horror series.
The two seasons have been a huge hit among the young population. Even though the storyline was criticized for being unoriginal and a little bit tone-deaf, it did gain some loyal fans.
