One of our most anticipated shows, which debuts this August, is AMC’s new take on the zombie apocalypse, “Fear The Walking Dead.” AMC has released an image of their poster that they will be bringing to San Diego Comic Con and although there is no decaying corpse attacking an innocent bystander or chasing folks through the streets, the image gives off a creepy vibe just fine.

Lucky, and infinitely patient fans who wait for hours in line at the convention will get to see and hear from the cast and executive producers on the show at a panel on Friday, July 10th at 1 p.m at the infamous…..Hall H.
A companion series to The Walking Dead, the #1 show on television among adults 18-49, Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and showrunner David Erickson and produced by AMC Studios. Co-Executive Producer Adam Davidson, who directed the pilot, is also directing the second and third episodes. The series’ first season, consisting of six one-hour episodes, will premiere on AMC in August, 2015.
“Fear the Walking Dead takes us back to the earlier, more dangerous, more terrifying days of The Walking Dead,” said Kirkman. “A time when danger was lurking around every corner and the thing mostly likely to get you killed was your own ignorance of the rapidly changing world around you. The stakes are going to be higher and the ride more intense. We’re going to show people all the insanity of civilization crumbling that Rick Grimes slept through. Buckle up.”
