Z Nation Extras Casting :: UPDATE

This page holds relevance to anyone interested in Extra work on Z Nation.

Z Nation Season 4 will shoot in the Spokane area! There will be a Zombie Audition scheduled in the coming weeks. We will keep all of our talent notified of this audition via our online systems.

If you are not yet in the online systems we use read, link, and follow through with the necessary steps below.

Be advised of the following 4 requirements for extras on Z Nation:

  1. ONLY those who attend ‘zombie auditions’ & are then selected by casting to work as zombies, and those who have worked as zombies on the show in any of the first 3 seasons, will be eligible for ‘Zombie Extra’ work in season 4. All others can be considered for ‘Human Extra’ work. The Zombie Audition date for season 4 is yet to be determined. If you have a mind to audition for zombie work, we would encourage you to watch any/all of the first 3 seasons of the show to study zombie movements. (available on Netflix)
  2. EVERYONE MUST be 18 years of age or older, unless otherwise stated.
  3. EVERYONE MUST be represented by an agency. This production will only book you through a talent agency. If you are not currently represented by Big Fish NW for extra work, click here instructions and general information. If you are currently represented by Big Fish NW, your Big Fish NW-AgencyPro (AP) & Casting Networks-Big Fish Background (CN-BFB) profiles must be current. If you need to update photos on CN-BFB, there is no charge for extras to do so … send the images to rich@castingnetworks.com vs. replacing on the CN site. [Note: If you are a Big Fish NW Talent principal character actor wishing also to be considered for extra work, you will need to ‘link’ your main BFNW-Casting Networks profile to CN-BFB. Not sure how? Ask becky@bigfishnw.com.]
  4. EVERYONE MUST be a resident of Washington State and will complete and leave with the production team a declaration of residency form confirming & documenting residency in the state for at least 6 months. The form must be accompanied by a copy of one of the following:
    • A valid WA driver’s license or other WA state issued ID that was issued more than 6 months ago (or a newly issued WA ID along with your old WA ID);
    • or, a WA voter’s registration card issued more than 6 months ago;
    • or, 6 months of utility bills in the talent’s name with a WA address (only electric, gas, water, waste/trash or cable bills will be accepted.)

If you do not qualify under the above, you will not be able to work on Z Nation; but there are many other projects Big Fish NW works where you could easily fit.


The extras casting team on Z Nation uses an online profile/casting system to book the show; and, Big Fish NW uses yet another online system when casting the majority of the projects we book. We cannot submit you for opportunities unless you have profiles (both accurate and current) in the two online portfolio systems.
