In a report by TV Guide, the series would start off as a prequel to what Rick Grimes has been through, where the new series would start to focus on how society became to what they have known.
This is it, the countdown to the series premiere of Fear the Walking Dead is winding down, and here we are with our final update regarding what we know about the show so far.
Addicted to drugs and tangled in trouble, Nick might finally be on the road to recovery – even though the rest of the world is undergoing the exact opposite.
In the short preview posted on the US television series’ Facebook page, viewers get a chilling glimpse at the first episode which is just days away from airing.
Well, not quite, but Elizabeth Rodriguez, who stars in Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black and AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead (Sunday, 9 p.m. ET/PT), had some interesting thoughts when asked how the Litchfield Penitentiary inmates would fare during an apocalypse. Watch the first three minutes of the series above.
Never fear, The Walking Dead is back…sort of. In keeping with The Walking Dead, this is a grounded representation of what would happen to a family as the world is collapsing around them because of this contagion. Set at the beginning of the zombie outbreak in Los Angeles, Fear centers on two families, the Clarks and the Manawas. In it, we see Frank Dillane’s character Nick make a stunning discovery that sets all of the apocalyptic events in motion.
So much so that showrunner Dave Erickson gave a whole list of things to The Hollywood Reporter that won’t be similar to the original show. One may come – but not yet. There’s a connection between the two of them that no one else in the show really has, and she also more than anybody else understands her brother and knows when he’s full of shit. The first season is going for a slow build approach to the breakdown of civilization as opposed to the hard push we got in the original series, but the second season will be going headlong into a lot of action after building the tension.
For someone who’s grown increasingly ambivalent about “The Walking Dead”, ratings juggernaut it might be, “Fear the Walking Dead” strikes all the right chords. Cliff Curtis plays Travis, Madison’s partner and a teacher at the high school.
We wanted to show an area that was not only representative of Los Angeles, but also representative of many urban communities throughout the United States. Some are really morally complex.
