Wowow will screen the 13-episode debut season over four nights ? starting at 10 pm each night from 30 December to 3 January.

Zoo, based on the #1 bestselling novel by James Patterson, is a global thriller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans sweeping the planet. Among principal cast of Zoo are James Wolk, Kristen Connolly, Billy Burke, Nonso Anozie and Nora Arnezeder.
