AMC says filming has begun on The Walking Dead spinoff Fear the Walking Dead. The new zombie series will be shooting in Vancouver with Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert and showrunner David Erickson executive producing. Season one will consist of six one-hour episodes that will air later this summer, and the show’s already been given a second season order.
The pilot as well as episodes two and three will be directed by showrunner Davidson. The series stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and Mercedes Mason.
“Fear the Walking Dead takes us back to the earlier, more dangerous, more terrifying days of The Walking Dead,” said Kirkman. “A time when danger was lurking around every corner and the thing mostly likely to get you killed was your own ignorance of the rapidly changing world around you. The stakes are going to be higher and the ride more intense. We’re going to show people all the insanity of civilization crumbling that Rick Grimes slept through. Buckle up.”
“I could not be more thrilled to be continuing on this apocalyptic journey, dramatizing the horrific disintegration of society through the lens of a dysfunctional family. We’ve assembled a stellar cast and crew to tell our story — it’s going to be a great ride,” added Erickson.
