Fear The Walking Dead has helped remind fans of the AMC horror-smash what its titular corpses looked like early on, a point well contrasted with early looks at The Walking Dead Season 6's ever-increasing rot. S6 may well mark a turning point however, as producer Greg Nicotero has reached a point of requiring digital effects to continue the gruesome decay of The Walking Dead.

Overdue for a new trailer though we are, The Walking Dead Season 6 teased plenty by its first footage at Comic-Con 2015, and the subsequent weeks. Now, with production deep into Season 6, new rumors suggest that The Walking Dead has already begun filming with a new major comic character, while casting calls suggest the next big bad will make an appearance before long.
As Fear The Walking Dead explores a different angle of the zombie apocalypse well-removed from Rick Grimes and Alexandria, crossover rumors have repeatedly flown back and forth. That flight has just become literal, as Season 6 will host a series of Walking Dead shorts set on an airplane, introducing a new character for Fear The Walking Dead Season 2. Confused yet?
Fear The Walking Dead may have re-started the zombie apocalypse with last night’s premiere, but the mothership is already pulling us back to its Season 6 future by the first official clip. See what Abraham and Sasha are up to outside of Alexandria, plus new promo!
AMC's 'Fear The Walking Dead' can't help shambling over some familiar territory, but gets surprisingly real over the collapse of civilization, more than living up to its predecessor . Our early spoiler-free review, before the "Companion Series" premieres in full on August 23!
The Walking Dead won’t shamble out its sixth season until October, but in the meantime this weekend will kick off the zombie apocalypse anew in a different part of the country with “companion series” spinoff Fear The Walking Dead. Want an early sneak peek? Check out the first scene of the series right now!
Anyone who enjoys charting the course between AMC’s Walking Dead and its comic iteration can’t help noticing a few aesthetic differences, as the live-action series tends to pour out sweat in blistering heat from every direction. The comics have more evenly depicted walkers through multiple climates, but when it comes to snow, showrunner Scott Gimple has an intriguing response.
By now you’ve surely read our review of Fear The Walking Dead (and if you haven’t, why won’t you let us love you?), but the Walking Dead companion series’ strengths are best expressed by the cast and crew themselves. Go behind the scenes of Fear The Walking Dead with loads of new footage and intel on a new breed of psychological horror.
The Walking Dead got as much mileage out of its first big bad as humanly possible (even then keeping him around for the occasional hallucination), but many wonder when the infamous “Negan” might swing his trusty bat, now that we’ve established Alexandria. Good news! The Walking Dead may yet introduce Negan (and others) in Season 6 … or maybe 7. Hey, even they don’t know.
The Walking Dead Season 6 seems a bit more transparent than its predecessor, though the October 11 premiere may leave a few scratching their heads. Not only will the new season of AMC’s monster smash open on a “heightened” action sequence absent any context, but so too will episodes dip back to show both Morgan and others’ backstories.
