‘When the world ends, the fun begins’
Bunkheads is a six-episode 2018 American comedy horror TV series directed by Lauren Klixbull from a series of scripts written by Will Gong. Gabriel Reiter produced the show which stars Khalif Boyd, Josh Covitt, Chris O’Brien and Carly Turro.
“With humour and heart, Bunkheads tells the story of the unlikeliest people forging a new family. One year into the zombie apocalypse, we jump into an underground bunker where four zany survivors – an oddball teacher, a floundering actress, a techie workout warrior, and an immature wannabe rapper – are hiding from the undead hordes above.
Stuck in cramped quarters, the Bunkheads are isolated and hangry. As frustrations start to boil over we explore the lives, dreams, and fantasies of these lovable goofballs who aren’t sure if they are holding out for a miraculous rescue or just biding time until they become zombie lunchables.
As they await their fate, we learn that the hardest part of the zombie apocalypse isn’t surviving; it’s putting up with each other.”

“Personally, I was hoping for a darker style of humor, with more zombies and a feeling of impending doom. Bunkheads, however, is more of a standard character-driven, ensemble comedy with some “edgy” moments […] if you like standard sitcoms centered around an odd group of individuals coming together for some reason, you’ll probably like Bunkheads.” Jim Morazzini, Voices from the Balcony
