Earlier today AMC released the trailer for “The Walking Dead’s” upcoming sixth season. And it was insane.
Now, we have our first full look at the new spinoff, “Fear the Walking Dead,” which just premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con!
In the trailer we see our first infection, the boy who reports it, and the city who tries to hide it. Social media brings it to National attention, and shit gets crazy from there. I love how populated the streets of Los Angeles look, giving it a very realistic aesthetic that “The Walking Dead” is missing. While “Walking Dead” may be comic book-esque, I expect “Fear the Walking Dead” to be more along the lines of World War Z. And damn does it look crazy. I can’t wait for the season premiere on August 23rd!
“‘Fear the Walking Dead’ takes us back to the beginning of the zombie apocalypse – a time when the world was changing rapidly for reasons unknown, before anyone understood exactly what was happening, when life as everyone knew it was upended and altered in ways no one could have ever imagined.“
“Fear the Walking Dead” stars Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, “Sons of Anarchy”) as Madison, Cliff Curtis (“Missing,” “Gang Related”) as Travis, Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) as Nick and Alycia Debnam-Carey (Into the Storm) as Alicia. Also joining the cast as series regulars are Elizabeth Rodriguez (“Orange is the New Black”) as Liza and Mercedes Mason (Quarantine 2: Terminal) as Ofelia.
The show’s first season will consist of six one-hour episodes. The second season will air in 2016.
