The upcoming "Walking Dead" companion series, "Fear the Walking Dead," aired its first promo during the original show's fifth season finale Sunday night, offering fans a short tease of what's to come on the new drama.
The 15-second clip features a radio newscaster warning Los Angeles residents to get their flu shots, since there have been "reports in five states of a strange virus going around." Of course, longtime "Walking Dead" fans know that this ultimately leads to the zombie outbreak, but "Fear" takes place in a slightly earlier timeline than the first series -- and conventional wisdom says that all sick people should do is simply get some rest and "take care of yourself."
There are a couple quick glimpses at walkers in the clip, first a pack of them roaming through what looks like a street carnival, and another, longer shot of a lone zombie shambling toward the frame. We'll see how many more are introduced during "Fear"'s first season, which spans six episodes this summer before a full, second season is due in 2016.
"Fear the Walking Dead" stars Kim Dickens,Cliff Curtis,Alycia Debnam Carey, and Frank Dillane.
