‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Trailer: AMC’s ‘Companion Series’ Restarts the Zombie ApocalypseKevin Fitzpatrick |
The Walking Dead made its companion series spinoff officially official in titling the West Coast prequel tale Fear The Walking Dead, and already we have our first look at the new corner of Robert Kirkman’s zombie empire. See the dead walk all over again with our first trailer for summer spinoff Fear The Walking Dead!
The Last Airbender star Cliff Curtis leads the cast as divorced teacher Sean Cabrera, alongside Gone Girl star Kim Dickens as high school guidance counselor Nancy. Also cast in the role of her two children from a previous marriage are Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince star Frank Dillane and AMC pilot Galyntine star Alycia Debnam Carey.
The companion series to AMC’s monster smash will follow its predecessor with a six-episodes first season, and a second season of regular length already ordered for 2016. Additionally, while the companion series will begin as a prequel to the zombie apocalypse, creator Robert Kirkman has expressed that the two series will eventually catch up to one another.
Walking Dead executive producers Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert will all take part in the new L.A.-set series, while Sons of Anarchy and Low Winter Sun vet Dave Erickson will both co-write and executive produce, Adam Davidson having directed the pilot.
We’ve also heard that The Walking Dead Season 6 might feature a character connected to the companion series, so take a look at the first trailer above, and start counting down to the late summer premiere!
