Judging by the record breaking ratings of the pilot episode of AMC’s prequel, Fear The Walking Dead, many of you guys are digging the series or at least tuning in to see what it’s all about. The next couple of episodes will tell the tale as to if the series has staying power with fans of the mother series. Anyway, we have a brief sneak peek at episode 2 entitled, “So Close, Yet So Far” so check it out down below.
Living in the same universe as The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark and English teacher Travis Manawa have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
The cast includes Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Lorenzo James Henrie, Elizabeth Ridriguez, Ruben Blades, Mercedes Mason, Patricia Reyes Spindola.
Fear The Walking Dead is from writer/co-creator/executive producer Robert Kirkman, writer/co-creator/executive producer/showrunner Dave Erickson, executive producer Gale Ann Hurd, executive producer/special effects makeup supervisor Greg Nicotero, executive producer David Alpert, co-executive producer/director Adam Davidson.
