Mack being devoured by Zombies

Mack Thompson was a main character and a survivor of the initial zombie apocalypse in "Z Nation", first encountered in "Puppies and Kittens".


Mack was Addy's boyfriend in Z Nation. He was also a member of the Westward-Bound Survivor Group.


Mack was a charming all-American jock who had an eye for the ladies. A good shot and with a temper, Mack protected Addy no matter what. In Season 1, Mack and Addy displayed a serious relationship alongside the group. Mack commonly showed up chill and has a sharp eye for killing the zombies. Moments after Garnett’s death, His relationship with Addy started to get confusing as Addy later betrayed Mack to join the Sisters of Mercy.

In Season 2, Mack came off with a much more serious vibe, barely saying anything during the two episodes he was featured. He became silent though still followed orders. Before his death, he asks Addy to leave him as he did not want her to see him turn, possibly still caring about her despite breaking up.


Nothing is known about Mack prior to the apocalypse, other than the fact that he was an ice hockey player for the Tri-City Americans in the Western Hockey League (Canada).
