AMC is turning up the head just days after unveiling “The Walking Dead’s” companion series brand new title and official logo. The spin-off series officially titled “Fear the Walking Dead” let loose its first official teaser to keep the hordes of TWD fans at bay. With no less than two seasons heading our way with the first season slated to debut in late summer, we are literally jumping in our seats with excitement. AMC debuted the first teaser for the brand new “Dead” series on Sunday, March 29. It is a short but intriguing clip, featuring LA just as the “virus” started spreading in the city of lost angels.
An announcer in the voiceover for the clip says:
“Morning, Los Angeles. Hope you’ve got your flu shot. Reports in five states said a strange virus is going around, so if you’re not feeling well, go home and take care of yourselves,”
The caption for the video reads:
“A strange virus is going around…”
The show will star Cliff Curtis (Gang Related), Kim Dickens (Deadwood), Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey (The 100) as Los Angeles residents struggling to survive the zombie apocalypse. The series will be based in Los Angeles but it’s unclear if the show will actually be shot in L.A. The pilot will be penned by Dave Erickson and the “Walking Dead” comic book author Robert Kirkman.
This is the official clip from AMC which is set to play in specific regions only
