‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Keeps Zombies Pretty in First Official Walker Photos
Where The Walking Dead Season 6 has pulled the flesh back on its increasingly-decayed undead, companion spinoff Fear The Walking Dead has kept its zombies largely in the shadows for the beginning of the outbreak. Now, our first official look at the newer, fresher zombies of Fear The Walking Dead have arrived, and might explain how quickly the outbreak spread.
As released by AMC, the first official walker photos from Fear The Walking Dead show off quick looks at two new walkers, the same previously revealed at the Comic-Con 2015 panel. The lighter, female of the two will come to chase Frank Dillane’s Nick, as we’d seen previously, no doubt aided by her vague and sickly good looks, while the second, somewhat more gruesome ghoul will arrive in the show’s third installment.
From what we know of Fear The Walking Dead, The Last Airbender star Cliff Curtis leads the cast as divorced teacher Travis, alongside Gone Girl star Kim Dickens as high school guidance counselor Madison. Also cast in the role of her two children from a previous marriage are Harry Potter alum Frank Dillane and The 100 star Alycia Debnam Carey. Orange is the New Black star Elizabeth Rodriguez, Ruben Blades and Mercedes Mason also round out the ensemble, which recently picked up Southland‘s Shawn Hatosy.
The companion series to AMC’s monster smash will follow its predecessor with a six-episode 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.
