Fear the Walking Dead is the first spinoff based off the widely popular AMC thriller The Walking Dead. It is set in LA at the beginning of the outbreak. It follows an all new cast of characters as they navigate through the zombie riddled streets of LA.
Admittedly, I wasn’t a huge fan of the idea of a spinoff to the Walking Dead. Nevermind the fact that they entitled “Fear the Walking Dead”. However, after seeing this trailer, I dig this idea. I love the fact that we finally get to see it start. Furthermore, the idea that it doesn’t just happen in one day is really interesting. This will make the series premiere that more tantalizing.
Fear the Walking Dead has very big shoes to fill. It will constantly be compared to the original but I really hope it’s just as good. I have high hopes for it.
Fear the Walking Dead premieres August 23rd on AMC.
