As is tradition, this past weekend at Comic-Con 2015 saw The Walking Dead shambling out its first trailer for the new season, and things are only getting bloodier in and out of Alexandria. We couldn’t help diving way deeper into every frame of footage, so what secrets of The Walking Dead Season 6 did we dig up?

The Walking Dead may have blown the roof off Comic-Con 2015 by its Season 6 trailer, but the zombie apocalypse has only just begun by our first full look at companion spinoff Fear The Walking Dead. Not only do we at last know when our Fear will premiere, but the new trailer teases our best look yet at The Walking Dead's West Coast prequel.
AMC had a special treat at The Walking Dead panel at Comic-Con 2015 — a very extended trailer for Season 6, which pits Rick and Morgan’s factions against one another as both men are determined to best the other in the ultimate, desperate fight for the future and survival of humanity.
The Walking Dead Season 5 left us on a relatively safe cliffhanger teasing the reunion of Rick and Morgan, but Season 6 may well bring all the Alexandria walls down. Comic-Con 2015 has brought the cast back to San Diego, and you know know what that means! The Season 6 trailer is here, and fans are already ravenous.
The latter half of The Walking Dead’s most recent season followed its comic Alexandria arc nearly to the letter, but will Season 6 start diverging, or continue along Robert Kirkman’s work? A new interview with showrunner Scott Gimple previews that not only will Season 6 bring some heavily comic-adapted material, but also fill in backstory the books never addressed.
The Walking Dead Season 6 gave a us a taste of fresh hell by its Comic-Con poster and first new character image, but in the aftermath of Season 5 finale “Conquer,” did you ever ask yourself, “Do Daryl, Glenn and Maggie still look like regular, sweaty humans?” Thankfully, new images from Season 6 put to rest such nightmare-inducing queries.
Breaking Bad successfully turned Mr. Chips into Scarface, but did you know that AMC wanted Matthew Broderick or John Cusack for the role of Walter White? Or that Jesse was supposed to die in Season 1? These are just some of the crystal blue persuasions from the thirteenth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which cooks up a new batch for AMC’s Breaking Bad!
Sad though we'll be to see Cullen Bohannon finally bring Hell on Wheels to a hard stop (admittedly in 2016, with AMC already lining up its next western), the first look at Season 5 seems the most exciting and exotic yet. Bullets fly, trains collide, and there's even a crazy dude in a mask in our first look at Hell on Wheels fifth' and final season!
Fear The Walking Dead seems at best an oddity, giving AMC another zombie series to cash in on brand appeal, minus the whole zombie bit, while adding one easily-lampooned setting. That dichotomy gets no less weird in Fear The Walking Dead’s Comic-Con 2015 key art, as beach walkers arrive to harsh everyone’s buzz, brah.
AMC will make its largest showing yet of Fear The Walking Dead at Comic-Con 2015, in the meantime releasing even more photos and clips, along with a moody new poster. There’s finally a zombie to be found, but do the latest looks at The Walking Dead companion series inspire any actual fear?
