Fear The Walking Dead released a new trailer today, 6 days after the last one. AMC is really trying to heighten the anticipation for The Walking Dead prequel, that reveals our familiar zombie apocalypse, at the onset of the outbreak.
Watch the trailer and a few more videos below.
The trailer shows a scene between Kim Dickens, a guidance counselor, and a student, who is fearfully describing what he is not sure is a “virus or a microbe.” She tells him, “The authorities would tell us.”
Really? The authorities are probably walkers by now, lady.
The 2nd video, posted a few days ago, reveals Nick (Frank Dillane) running as if he’s being chased by a gang of clowns with razor teeth, or maybe zombies. We don’t see what he’s running from, but can hazard a guess, having journeyed with Rick and the gang for five seasons.
The 3rd brings us Executive Producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Ann Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and Dave Erickson explaining the concept and the new vibe.
Kirkman: “You don’t need to have watched The Walking Dead to understand Fear The Walking Dead.”
You can watch the previous trailer and catch up with casting announcements right here.
Fear The Walking Dead premieres with a 6-episode season this August on AMC.
A companion series to “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on television among adults 18-49, “Fear the Walking Dead” takes us back to the beginning of the zombie apocalypse – a time when the world was changing rapidly for reasons unknown, before anyone understood exactly what was happening, when life as everyone knew it was upended and altered in ways no one could have ever imagined. “Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and showrunner David Erickson and produced by AMC Studios. The series, set in Los Angeles, stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Liza, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia and Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris.
