However AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead distinguishes itself from the parent series after showcasing the outset of the zombie apocalypse, the August prequel will quickly share something in common. After six episodes in its first season, Fear The Walking Dead will return in 2016 with an order expanded from the AMC norm.
Were zombies to truly start roaming the streets, we could all probably use a drink. The Walking Dead certainly isn’t ignorant of this fact, occasionally stopping in between walker hack-n’-slash for a pint or two, but at last fans have their own official beer to celebrate Robert Kirkman’s undead franchise, and with a bit of blood to boot.
Fast approaching Season 6, AMC’s The Walking Dead already has its golden years in sight, even if franchise creator Robert Kirkman famously envisions the source material lasting indefinitely. Time is time, and even Kirkman has in mind how The Walking Dead might end, while a new Season 5 deleted scene should get fans a-buzzing for Rick and Michonne in Season 6.
Where The Walking Dead Season 6 has pulled the flesh back on its increasingly-decayed undead, companion spinoff Fear The Walking Dead has kept its zombies largely in the shadows for the beginning of the outbreak. Now, our first official look at the newer, fresher zombies of Fear The Walking Dead have arrived, and might explain how quickly the outbreak spread.
The Walking Dead Season 6 gave plenty of insight into the zombie drama by its first trailer (which lucky for you, we’ve broken down to absurd lengths) but one facet of the AMC horror smash went unacknowledged. Decaying further and further each year, The Walking Dead are looking extra gross this season, and we have the photos to prove it.
As is tradition, this past weekend at Comic-Con 2015 saw The Walking Dead shambling out its first trailer for the new season, and things are only getting bloodier in and out of Alexandria. We couldn’t help diving way deeper into every frame of footage, so what secrets of The Walking Dead Season 6 did we dig up?
The Walking Dead may have blown the roof off Comic-Con 2015 by its Season 6 trailer, but the zombie apocalypse has only just begun by our first full look at companion spinoff Fear The Walking Dead. Not only do we at last know when our Fear will premiere, but the new trailer teases our best look yet at The Walking Dead's West Coast prequel.
The Walking Dead Season 6 gave a us a taste of fresh hell by its Comic-Con poster and first new character image, but in the aftermath of Season 5 finale “Conquer,” did you ever ask yourself, “Do Daryl, Glenn and Maggie still look like regular, sweaty humans?” Thankfully, new images from Season 6 put to rest such nightmare-inducing queries.
Fear The Walking Dead seems at best an oddity, giving AMC another zombie series to cash in on brand appeal, minus the whole zombie bit, while adding one easily-lampooned setting. That dichotomy gets no less weird in Fear The Walking Dead’s Comic-Con 2015 key art, as beach walkers arrive to harsh everyone’s buzz, brah.
AMC will make its largest showing yet of Fear The Walking Dead at Comic-Con 2015, in the meantime releasing even more photos and clips, along with a moody new poster. There’s finally a zombie to be found, but do the latest looks at The Walking Dead companion series inspire any actual fear?
