Can’t get enough flesh-eating mayhem in your life? AMC has you covered. After tonight’s season finale of The Walking Dead, the network gave us our first look at the upcoming spin-off series, Fear The Walking Dead. (God, that title is terrible.)
Though it is a scant 16-seconds long, the teaser offers us a glimpse of a world that is not yet ravaged by zombie apocalypse; rather, it seems that we’ll be seeing what the outbreak was like when it first started, which should put it ahead of the timeline of The Walking Dead itself. Maybe now we’ll see what happened while Rick took a little coma-nap, huh?
“A strange virus is going around…” warns the upbeat radio announcer. Unfortunately, not even a flu shot can prevent the residents of Los Angeles from turning into undead abominations come this summer.
Fun fact: that shot of a farmer’s market around the :07 mark is literally right around the corner from my apartment in Los Angeles. So, if you need me, I’ll be boarding up my windows and preparing for an influx of walkers to come staggering up the hill.
Fear The Walking Dead premieres summer 2015 on AMC.
