The Walking Dead is already a Comic-Con behemoth, without which we wouldn’t have the chance to see hordes of the undead casually eating nachos and drinking soda. With the introduction of the new series Fear The Walking Dead, we now have twice as much zombie goodness to look forward to at The Big Con. This year, the Robert Kirkman franchise got to strut their stuff at not one, but two crowd-pleasing Hall H panels.
The panel for the O.G. Walking Dead series brought the debut of a Season 6 trailer featuring a beardless-Rick Grimes, mega-herds of zombies, three new characters, and lots of dramatic gun-waving moments. Nerdist overlord Chris Hardwick led the Q&A that followed, revealing many exciting insights and details about the new season.
Then, new footage at the Fear The Walking Dead panel painted a clear picture of how the tone and feel of the companion show will differ from its predecessor. The new cast got a taste of their first Comic-Con and hopefully not their last.
Join host Jessica Chobot for more on the scoop from Hall H, as well as some footage from her interview with the whole cast of The Walking Dead, and let us know what you’re looking forward to in the new series and Season 6 in the comments!
