More Fear the Walking Dead! It’s almost here! The 6-episode first season premieres this Sunday on AMC, after months of clips, teasers, news, first looks, and interviews. This could be the beginning of a WTU (Walker Television Universe) expansion, should this show be successful.
Watch the “Characters” video and a little clip from creator Robert Kirkman below.
In the video you see Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) sleeping next to her son, Nick (Frank Dillane) in his hospital bed. Nick, whom we saw stumbling in horror at his friend (girlfriend?) the zombie, earlier today in the 1st three minutes of the pilot episode video. The Clarks are our core family for the Los Angeles zombie outbreak. We meet Alicia Clark (Alycia Debnam-Carey), guidance counselor Madison’s other child, who wants nothing more than to be away with her boyfriend. And high school teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) moved in with Madison, but still has his ex Liza (Elizabeth Rodriguez) and resentful son, Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) to deal with. Plus, you know… zombies.
Fear the Walking Dead premieres Sunday, August 23rd on AMC.
