[UPDATED: With first trailer]

Okay, guys. Here's everything you need to know about AMC's Walking dead spin-off, offically titled "Fear The Walking Dead."

AMC announced that it's placed an initial two-season order for a companion series to “The Walking Dead,” the #1 show on television among adults 18-49 for going on three seasons.

he new series called Fear The Walking Dead will be set in Los Angeles and focused on new characters and storylines. The show’s first season will consist of six one-hour episodes and premiere on AMC in late summer. The show’s second season will air in 2016.

Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert from “The Walking Dead” are executive producers of the new series, which, like the original, is being produced by AMC Studios. Dave Erickson (“Marco Polo,” “Sons of Anarchy”), who co-created and co-wrote the pilot with Kirkman, is an executive producer and showrunner. The series will star Cliff Curtis (“Missing,” “Gang Related”), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl, “Sons of Anarchy”), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm).


About the show:
Cliff Curtis (Gang Related) stars as Sean Cabrera, a teacher who shares a son with his ex-wife. Sons of Anarchy‘s Kim Dickens is set to co-star as Nancy, a guidance counselor who works at the school with Sean and is seeing him romantically. Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) co-stars as Nancy’s son Nick, who has battled a drug problem; and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Woods) is set as Nancy’s ambitious daughter Ashley, who is the polar opposite of Nick and has dreams of leaving L.A. for Berkeley when the apocalypse strikes.


“We feel empowered by this two-season commitment, a serious show of faith from our network partner AMC,” Kirkman said. “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.’”

That's all folks. It's shaping up to be a great summer TV season.

My understanding is this is suppose to start at the beginning of the ZA. So by what? Season two or three they should be into full blown ZA. Then what? The world wonders!!!

At most they'll have a couple weeks notice before a full blown ZA hits them.

Although everything we've seen of the pre-ZA in the games or books. People really didn't pay much attention until they were running for their lives in the streets, while not knowing WTF was going on.

Then what will happen? Do they stay in L.A for ever? Do they start a new group of survivors we follow around?

Will any of these characters be dead before the end of season 1?

I'm a fan, can't wait.

Not much of a trailer. I just hate to see a rehash of the WD, after season 2. I'm going to reserve judgment, but I'll tune in like everybody else.
