As the only zombie apocalypse television show out there at the moment, there are countless people out there who criticize The Walking Dead for not offering the zombie experience that they’d like. Some people don’t want drama, some people just want gore-filled action and violence, which is understandable. That’s why AMC has decided to create a spin-off of the popular series that focuses on just that: action and violence.
As a spinoff of The Walking Dead, one of the most popular shows on TV right now, Fear the Walking Dead has a name that proves it isn’t trying too hard to differentiate itself from the flagship series. But while the two shows will have the same zombie apocalypse as the overarching catalyst for the drama, the pair will definitely be distinct in their nature and formatting. And while AMC hasn’t exactly been the most forthcoming with details, we’ve rounded up everything we know about Fear the Walking Dead. AMC has been pretty coy about when they’re aiming to air Season 1 of Fear the Walking Dead, simply saying it’ll be debuting in late summer. Considering there are only six episodes in the first season, and that Season 6 of The Walking Dead will hit the network in October, this spinoff could conceivably kick off in either July or August without the two series colliding with one another.
