AMC launches the campaign for season 6 of The Walking Dead tonight with a special Season 6 Preview episode of Talking Dead, and that’s not all. Right after, you can stay in the world of zombies because Fear the Walking Dead premieres the first of their six episode season at 9pm.
I’m going to say right here that this is not a spoiler-free piece about The Walking Dead.
Talking Dead is shaping up to be an awesome episode with both Scott M. Gimple and Jorge Garcia taking to the couch to discuss the upcoming season. When last we saw our survivors, Rick was covered in blood and there was some serious chaos happening in Alexandria. Also, there were some definite hints of canines in the vicinity. If you’re not caught up, you only have about 3 weeks to get yourself squared away. Who knows what Chris, Gimple and Garcia will discuss? There will definitely be fan questions. AMC has been collecting them through their online forum for at least a week. I’m also hoping there will be some revisits to the major things that happened in Season 5, but I am not sure if I can really revisit them all. Some of them were really, really hard.
After Talking Dead, you’re going to want to stick around because Fear the Walking Dead has definitely made an impression just through their trailers.
As you know, the show will not share any cast or storylines with The Walking Dead, but it will be set in the same world with the same virus that causes zombie transformations. So long as the commitment to stellar storytelling and production stays true, I’m hoping for a fun new show with a new set of characters to love.
What questions are you hoping will get answered on Talking Dead tonight? Make sure you put them below and tune into AMC at 8pm for the show. Fear the Walking Dead premieres right after at 9pm. The Walking Dead will return on October 11th.
