The last time we checked in on “The Walking Dead’s” companion series it was confirmed that the show will take place during the same zombie apocalypse depicted on AMC’s popular post-apocalyptic show. We were eagerly standing by waiting for AMC to announce the official title so that we can ready the popcorn and cola to for the big reveal. “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman finally spilled the beans on Friday revealing the simple yet catchy title for the highly anticipated spin-off show.
He took to Twitter for the big reveal with the following tweet:
“IT’S OFFICIAL! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead”

There you have it geeks, “Fear the Walking Dead” is slated to premiere late this summer! 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. We simply can’t wait for the premiere!
