Sneak Peak at AMC's 'Fear the Walking Dead'
As we edge closer and closer to the premier for Fear The Walking Dead, we're learning just how awesome this show will be. AMC just recently released a new promo poster for the show (see above), depicting what appears to be a couple guys playing basketball with a “walker” approaching in the background. It's certainly an eye-catching promo that's sure to get people hyped for the upcoming premiere.
Fear The Walking Dead isn't a sequel to The Walking Dead. Instead, it's a spinoff series that takes place in the same universe as the Walking Dead, although at a different time and with a different set of characters. AMC gave the project the green light on March 9, 2015, ordering two full season (hopefully we'll see more).
While The Walking Dead takes place months after the zombie apocalypse in the southeast, Fear The Walking Dead takes place before and during the zombie apocalypse in Los Angeles, California. It will reportedly follow a group of people/survivors who are forced to band together in an effort to stay alive. This includes high school counselor Madison Clark, High school English teacher Travis Manawa, college dropout Nick Clark, student Alicia Clark, Liza Manawa, barber Danial Salazar, and Ofelia Salazar.
If you're interested in learning more about Fear The Walking Dead, check out the official trailer below. If the trailer is any indication of what's to come, I think it's say to say the show will live up to its expectations.
This isn't just an ordinary teaser trailer like so many production companies are keen on doing. It's a full-fledged three minutes that presents the characters, a little bit about their background, the Los Angeles setting, and the beginning of the zombie apocalypse. It even shows some pretty cool scenes of police trying to fend off walkers that have recently turned.
