Well, at least we can stop referring to AMC's “Walking Dead” companion series as AMC's Untitled “Walking Dead” Companion Series.
Series co-creator Robert Kirkman took to Twitter on Friday to reveal the official title.
IT'S OFFICIAL! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead

So… “Fear the Walking Dead.”
This continues AMC's somewhat odd trend of making imperative clauses into show titles.
“Fear the Walking Dead” joins “Halt and Catch Fire,” “Turn” and “Better Call Saul” among the AMC titles that could also just serve as helpful advice in certain circumstances.
AMC announced two weeks ago that “Fear the Walking Dead” has been given a two-season order, with an initial six-episode run premiering this summer, followed by a 2016 launch for season two.
