The Comic-Con trailer for Fear The Walking Dead surprised quite a few people who had no idea what to expect from this companion series for The Walking Dead, and I'm really liking the fact that this purposely looks and feels different from the current TV series. We're just a little more than a month away from the premiere and we've updated our gallery with a large addition of episode photos, as well as some behind-the-scenes images as well.
For those that missed our coverage last week, a premiere date of August 23rd was just announced and we have a look at the new trailer that played at Comic-Con.
"AMC and AMC Global, the international AMC-branded television network, announced today from Comic-Con International that the worldwide premiere of summer’s most anticipated new series “Fear the Walking Dead” will air Sunday, August 23rd at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The extended 90-minute episode will also debut on AMC Global channels around the world simultaneously with the U.S. premiere on AMC and will then re-air in local time zones during primetime.*
...A companion series to “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on U.S. television among adults 18-49, “Fear the Walking Dead” takes us back to the beginning of the zombie apocalypse – a time when the world was changing rapidly for reasons unknown, before anyone understood exactly what was happening, when life as everyone knew it was upended and altered in ways no one could have ever imagined. “Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and showrunner David Erickson and produced by AMC Studios. The series, set in Los Angeles, stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Liza, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia and Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris.
*“Fear the Walking Dead” will launch in the UK on August 31st."
