It seems that AMC has now mastered the art of building excitement when it comes to its long-running series “The Walking Dead”. They were just “infected” with some mysterious illness.
In addition, The Hollywood Reporter has stated that the streaming rights for Fear the Walking Dead in three European territories have been acquired by Amazon. “Fear The Walking Dead” spoilers indicate that the 90-minute series premiere will air on AMC on Sunday, August 23.
Amazon has announced a multi-territory deal with Entertainment One (eOne) that brings AMC Studios’ Fear The Walking Dead, the upcoming companion series to the hit show The Walking Dead, to Prime Video. “I had some nightmares the first few nights, but after that I was fine”. The spin-off has been co-created by Robert Kirkman, whose graphic novel also provided the basis for The Walking Dead. “So, we took a much different, cerebral approach to the walkers by playing up some of the damage that’s occurred to them during this sort of outbreak”.
Dickens says that Fear the Walking Dead isn’t just about zombies.
But it’s still a variation on The Walking Dead, and that means we can look forward to grit, gore, and some good old-fashioned people-eating. That means we get to witness the seriously bad stuff which went down while Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was in his coma.
Because the show is debuting to a built-in fanbase, “the most exciting thing is that they know the rules that (we) the characters don’t know”, noted cast member Elizabeth Rodriguez. “But you’ll even notice, you’ve seen in the Comic-Con trailer and in the first episode, the first walker that we see has a knife embedded into her chest”, Nicotero continued.
This time it’s Los Angeles that will be showcased during the zombie apocalypse whcih has seemingly crushed modern civilisation, certainly in the US at least.
