“Zombieland” will not become a full series for Amazon.com, but the online retailer will reportedly go ahead with “Alpha House.”

Reuters reports “Zombieland” producer and writer Rhett Reese blamed the decision to kill the series based on negative online reviews of the pilot by viewers. It averaged 3 ½ stars among 5,600 reviews, with over 1,200 people giving it just one or two stars.

“Alpha House,” a political comedy starring John Goodman, received 2,600 reviews averaging four stars, and over half of those gave it five stars.
