The fifth season of The Walking Dead” comes to an end Sunday, and AMC is going to force you to watch “Talking Dead” in order to catch the premiere of the spinoff’s promo.
On the heels of news that AMC has picked up two seasons of “The Walking Dead” companion series, AMC will share the first ever look at the pilot presentation of the tentatively titled “Fear The Walking Dead” during “Talking Dead” this coming Sunday at 10:30pm EST.
In the series, Kim Dickens stars as Miranda and Cliff Curtis as Sean.
AMC ordered two seasons of a spin-off series to be executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert.
AMC president Charles Collier has stated that the series will explore “what was going on in other parts of the zombie apocalypse, and what it looked like as the world really did ‘turn.’”
“Fear The Walking Dead” will be set in Los Angeles and focused on new characters and storylines. The show’s first season will consist of six one-hour episodes and premiere on AMC in late summer. The show’s second season will air in 2016.
The series will star Cliff Curtis (“Missing,” “Gang Related”), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, “Sons of Anarchy”), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm).
