With an August 2015 premiere and still no formal date still to be announced, Fear the Walking Dead returns this week with another meager teaser spot for TV audiences to remind them that something is coming, along with a new promotional poster to highlight the locale differences from the main series.
The series recently got picked up for two seasons, the first being a six episode run planned for late summer this year.
The new series, which is looking to take place roughly in the same time period as the main show but in a different location, is co-created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson. To bring it to life, they’ve brought on Adam Davidson, who has been around for quite a few years doing a lot of TV directing, including Hell on Wheels, Fringe and a variety of dramas such as Grey’s Anatomy and Parenthood – and even a dash of comedy such as Community.
The series stars Kim Dickens as Madison,Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Liza, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia and Rubén Blades.
Plot concept: “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.
