Are You Ready to 'Fear the Walking Dead'?
As it turns out, there are bigger things to fear than fear itself. For instance, fans are understandably skittish about "The Walking Dead" that's shambling towards our TVs on Sunday night. But there's more! Executive producer Robert Kirkman revealed that "Fear the Walking Dead" will be the official title of the spin-off, and frankly, that's enough to chill anyone's marrow.
According to Variety, the show will take place in Los Angeles, and it will have entirely new characters and narratives. Plus, fans around the world will be able to see the first episode of the show within 24 hours of its US premiere.
Kim Dickens,Cliff Curtis,Alycia Debnam Carey, and Frank Dillane will star in the spin-off. Dave Erickson ("Sons of Anarchy") will be the showrunner and an executive producer on "Fear the Walking Dead." He also co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman.
AMC is so bullish on the show that the network has ordered two seasons already, with the first to premiere this summer. There aren't many more details about what the show will entail, but we've got some suggestions.
IT'S OFFICIAL! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead
