The new series will debut on AMC this August and is a sort of prequel to the Walking Dead. Fear the Walking Dead takes place in Los Angeles and shows the events people experience as their world transforms into a zombie apocalypse. It is supposed to be the same apocalypse the Walking Dead characters face. But the new series starts off in the earliest days of the outbreak, when people were still unaware of what was going on.
We do not know much about Fear the Walking Dead. We do know that the show will follow a divorced teacher along with a guidance counselor and her two children. Walking Dead creator, Robert Kirkman that the same rules apply in the new series because it is during the same outbreak. For example, the characters in the series will somehow figure out that everyone is infected. It will be interesting to see how this comes into play. In the Walking Dead’s first season, Rick found out about this from a scientist at the CDC. Kirkman also hints that we will find out clues in the new series that relates to the Walking Dead. Could this mean that that characters in Fear the Walking Dead will figure out a new way to kill the zombies other than stabbing them in the brain? And could this rollover into the Walking Dead?
AMC recently released the official poster for Fear the Walking Dead, and it doesn’t answer any questions. Fans are still left guessing how this new series will go down. We will be able to find out more when the official trailer is released in July at the San Diego Comic Con. Until then, we will have to keep on guessing!
