Infections is a post-apocalyptic horror-drama zombie survival series by JtheAlphabetBoy and KeepOnKeepingOn. It is the second attempt at a reboot of J's first series, Infections, with the first being Willing to Survive.

The series was suggested by Keep on the community Discord, originally intending to work on it alone with permission from J. However, after J got on board, Keep suggested a collaboration project. The two have since been hard at work to produce a higher quality rewrite.

The series stars Nina Dobrev, Billie Lourd, Tyler Posey, and Evan Peters among others in the beginning of a zombie outbreak that quickly sweeps the nation. Unlike the original, the series is far more character driven with a heavy emphasis on tension and drama.

The revamped plotline contains elements faithful to the original series, as well as elements from Willing to Survive, and all new ideas conceived entirely for the reboot.

The series began on April 4, 2018 with the first season consisting of eight episodes.
