We know that the new series will air six one-hour episodes, the setting will be LA and we'll (obviously) be exploring the lives and storylines of new characters. The series will have the same team as TWD with executive producers; Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert. It will premiere late this summer with the show’s second season airing in 2016. AMC president Charles Collier recently revealed that the companion series will explore "what was going on in other parts of the zombie apocalypse, and what it looked like as the world really did ‘turn.’"
AMC has already ordered two seasons of what looks to be a prequel of the original series and cast members include; Cliff Curtis as "Sean," Kim Dickens as "Miranda," also Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey.
So what do you guys think of the title? Seems a little lackluster? Let us know if you're excited about the new series and of course, remember to tune in for the 90-minute season five finale this Sunday at 9 p.m. on AMC followed by Talking Dead.
IT'S OFFICIAL! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead
