One of the drawbacks of following one set of characters on The Walking Dead is that we’re only seeing a fraction of the zombie apocalypse that has overtaken the entire world. With Fear the Walking Dead, we’re seeing new characters at the beginning of the outbreak, but still — a small part of a very big story. But now, AMC has announced a very cool way to address one terrifying aspect of the beginning of the zombie-infested world: what happens when a zombie attack occurs on a plane during a flight.
Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive information about the upcoming half-hour special that will tie in to Fear the Walking Dead:
…AMC is producing a half-hour special that will tell a stand-alone story following a group of passengers facing a walker attack on an airline while in flight. One character who survives that encounter will then join the cast of Fear the Walking Dead in season two.
