With San Diego Comic-Con raging on as we speak, more and more gems are flooding in about The Walking Dead and its spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. AMC just released the world premiere trailer for the series, and I have to admit, it looks pretty awesome. It’s great that we get to see how the zombie, or walker, apocalypse begins. From the press release:
“Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson and the fantastic writers, producers, cast and crew responsible for bringing ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ to life have been hard at work creating an entirely distinct and compelling new series,” said Charlie Collier, AMC and SundanceTV president. “We join ‘Fear’ before the rise of the zombie apocalypse with an interesting family dynamic as its entry point. After years of planning, that we are now only six weeks from sharing ‘Fear’ with the world is truly exciting.”
“Anticipation around the world for ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ is reaching a crescendo and we are ecstatic about delivering the series to worldwide fans at the exact same time as the U.S.,” said Bruce Tuchman, President of AMC and Sundance Channel Global. “Whether you’re in Hong Kong, Madrid or São Paulo, AMC viewers will be able to join the journey and experience the start of the zombie apocalypse together.”
Fear the Walking Dead premieres Sunday, August 23 at 9 p.m. with a 90-minute episode.
