The first trailer is finally out for AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead. The few teasers that they had been releasing over the last few weeks didn’t really impress me, but now that we finally have a better grasp of the story, I know that I’ll at least be giving it my standard three episode probation.
What I like most about this new series is that it gives us something we were cheated out of in The Walking Dead. In the original series, Rick goes into a coma at the beginning and wakes up when society has already collapsed. Now it looks like we’ll finally get to see what happened to the world from patient zero through the apocalypse.
A companion series to “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on television among adults 18-49, “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” is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and showrunner David Erickson and produced by AMC Studios. The series, set in Los Angeles, stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Liza, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia and Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris.
