The companion series to The Walking Dead is on its way. It has been contracted for two season, the first of which will air late summer 2015. This will give us a bit of walker action until the regular series returns in October.
Season 1 of Fear the Walking Dead will be 6 episodes like the original series. It has also been announced that the series will not explain the origin of the zombie apocalypse.
I’m mixed about the series right now. It’s going to be nice having some TWD during the summer and having a shorter wait, but I am sceptical that it will live up to the original series.
