AMC “companion series” Fear The Walking Dead may have closed out its first season at only six episodes, but the West Coast angle of our zombie apocalypse will carry on through The Walking Dead Season 6 to come. Watch the first chapter of web series Flight 462, potentially introducing our first Fear The Walking Dead Season 2 character!

Taking place at some point during the events of Fear The Walking Dead, our first chapter from Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 doesn’t give us much to go on, other than a flight taking off at the onset of the zombie apocalypse, spotlighting one or two characters as the world beyond the airport seems to crumble. At the very least, we’ll have an additional minute or so through each Walking Dead episode to continue the story.

AMC also released a first synopsis:

“Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462” tells the story of a group of passengers aboard a commercial airplane during the earliest moments of the outbreak. Over the course of the series, the plane and the lives of its passengers are put in jeopardy once they discover an infected traveler.

The series is written by L. Signorino and Mike Zunic and directed by “Fear” director of photography Michael McDonough.

We’ll learn another chunk of the story next week, but will Fear cement itself any better with an additional mini-series to carry onto Season 2? How did the first finale wrap up AMC’s “companion series”?
