Ian Ziering heads to Comic-Con to promote new film Zombie Tidal Wave and take part in panel celebrating the 1990s

With the Sharknado franchise now in the rear-view mirror, star Ian Ziering is back with another over-the-top take: this time on the zombie genre.

And the Beverly Hills 90120 star was on hand at Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday to help promote the new Syfy flick, Zombie Tidal Wave.

He also took time to take part SYFY WIRE's It Came From The 90s panel, which was a celebration of one of pop culture's most entertaining decades.

The New jersey native, 55, showed off his still toned physique in form-fitted cream-colored pants and a white-patterned t-shirt as he headed out to do a slew of press for Zombie Tidal Wave.

'I pitched this movie four years ago to SyFy and they green lit it, but it took this many years to get into production because we kept shooting Sharknados,' he revealed in an interview with ETonline. 

He also said the cast and crew spent seven weeks in Thailand shooting the movie that he called 'epic.'

'What's special is these aren't your usual zombies; you can't kill my zombies,' he shared with proud enthusiasm.

'Cutting the head off, the mouth can still bite you. Chopping an arm off, the hand can still strangle you - it's kind of like that: a systemic disease with my zombies.'

He added, 'The fans of Sharknado are going to love this, and even if they never saw Sharknado it's something new.'

Being one of the stars of one of the biggest hits on television in the 1990's, made Ziering a perfect candidate to dish about the decade in the It Came from The 90's panel moderated by Dave Holmes.

Some of the other guests to take the walk down memory lane included Maude Garrett, Orlando Jones, Jason Mewes, Jonah Ray, Eliza Skinner, and Milana Vayntrub. 

The discussion was full of laughs. At one point, to hammer a point home, Ziering lifted to an old computer monitor from the 90s over his head to the delight of Vayntrub and the rest of the panel.

Ziering's Zombie Tidal Wave will air as part of Syfy's Off The Deep End Weekend, August 17.
