AMC Debuts First ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ Promo: Will You Tune In?

Fear The Walking Dead

During tonight’s Season 5 finale of The Walking Dead, AMC decided it wanted to give fans a little taste of the Fear that’s coming this summer. The network debuted the first-ever promo for The Walking Dead‘s companion series Fear The Walking Dead, and while the 16-second video didn’t feature much footage, it did confirm what many outlets have long been reporting about the show: it will indeed be a prequel to the original Walking Dead series, taking place during the early days of the outbreak in Los Angeles.

Fear The Walking Dead, which was given a two-season order from AMC earlier this month, stars Cliff Curtis (Gang Related), Kim Dickens (Deadwood), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam-Carey (The 100). The show’s title was just revealed this past Friday by Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. Its first season will consist of six episodes, the same amount as Season 1 of the original Walking Dead series.

“We feel empowered by this two-season commitment, a serious show of faith from our network partner AMC,” Kirkman said when the companion series was ordered. “I personally take it as a sign that they believe, like we do, that we’ve accomplished our goal of developing something original that can pay tribute to the original show and expand the world I created while at the same time having something new to say with this story. I’m very grateful that we now have the opportunity to tell this amazing story and show the fans that we really haven’t scratched the surface yet when it comes to The Walking Dead.”

Fear The Walking Dead is slated to premiere late this summer on AMC. Check out the promo for the series below.
