Greeting From Set: Fear the Walking Dead
Are you excited for the zombie apocalypse to start? "The Walking Dead" and "Fear the Walking Dead" are both having Comic-Con panels this Friday, July 10 in San Diego, and AMC issued a new behind-the-scenes set video for the spinoff in advance of SDCC.

The 3-minute set video was shot in the first week of "Fear" filming, launching the short six-episode first season. A full Season 2 has already been OK'd for 2016. One thing we're expecting on Friday is a specific Season 1 premiere date beyond "August." It would also be cool to see a full trailer, but for now we're excited to hear from stars Kim Dickens (Madison), Cliff Curtis (Travis), and Alycia Debnam-Carey (Alicia), as well as producers Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Dave Alpert, Greg Nicotero and showrunner Dave Erickson.

As Dave reiterated, this "Walking Dead" spinoff/companion series is first and foremost a family drama that evolves into a genre piece, and it's set in the gritty location of Los Angeles at the dawn of the outbreak.

Alycia Debnam-Carey: "The stuff they do is so fun, like, every different way you see zombies and everything is going to be really cool."

Cliff Curtis: "When I read the script it didn't read like a genre piece to me at all."

Dave Erickson: "Every aspect and element of the apocalypse is filtered through our core family."

Kim Dickens: "There's so many layers to this, it's not just about the genre, it's about the humanity within the genre."

Robert Kirkman: "Having society stripped from these people in real time is going to make this show more emotional, so that's something that I'm really excited about."

That's a good point. The main show mostly skipped the early days when everything was falling apart, so we should see more real-time terror, confusion, shock and the whole gamut of emotions from this group. Let's hope we like them as much as TWD's characters!
