We'd say this is sad news, but if you actually saw Amazon's Zombieland pilot - and we did - you'd know it really isn't.
According to writer/producer Rhett Reese in a tweet last night, the series - which is based on the 2009 movie but retains none of the original cast - was not picked up for a full season for Amazon's new streaming site.
Our Zombieland series will not be moving forward on Amazon.Sad for everyone involved.— Rhett Reese (@RhettReese) May 17, 2013
After announcing the news, Reese - who also wrote the 2009 film - got a little real with his followers:
I'll never understand the vehement hate the pilot received from die-hard Zombieland fans.You guys successfully hated it out of existence.— Rhett Reese (@RhettReese) May 17, 2013
Does that merit a meeeeow? Meeeeow! He ended it on a good note, though.
Anyway, we did our best, and we're very proud of our team.— Rhett Reese (@RhettReese) May 17, 2013
