Starring Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, Sons of Anarchy), Cliff Curtis (Missing, Gang Related), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm) and Executive Produced by Dave Erickson (Marco Polo, Sons of Anarchy), Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert, Fear the Walking Dead premieres this summer, with a second season airing in 2016.
“It is a family drama first and foremost, which I think evolves into a genre piece.” executive producer Dave Erickson says. “And it’s also an opportunity to introduce the new world we’re going to inhabit.”Yes, they have a similar title, but Fear The Walking Dead will have its own “fingerprint” and its “own voice,” according to executive producer Greg Nicotero—he’s also the man behind the zombie goodness.
“Having society stripped from these people in real-time is going to make this show more emotional, so that’s something that I’m really excited about,” Robert Kirkman, executive producer and co-creator of The Walking Dead comic book, says. “It’s about the humanity within the genre,” star Kim Dickens says.
The show, set in Los Angeles before the events of The Walking Dead, stars House of Cards‘ Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam-Carey. The first season of six episodes premieres this August and a second season has already been ordered.
“We feel empowered by this two-season commitment, a serious show of faith from our network partner AMC,” Kirkman said in a statement when AMC announced the order. “I personally take it as a sign that they believe, like we do, that we’ve accomplished our goal of developing something original that can pay tribute to the original show and expand the world I created while at the same time having something new to say with this story. I’m very grateful that we now have the opportunity to tell this amazing story and show the fans that we really haven’t scratched the surface yet when it comes to The Walking Dead.”
Fear The Walking Dead premieres Sunday, Aug. 23 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
