For those of you who didn't know, there is a companion series to The Walking Dead coming out that will do a few truly amazing things. Firstly, it will be set in Los Angeles, which is cool because there is a lot of stuff they can do with that diverse terrain and massive population of people. Secondly, it is going to take place during the original outbreak and will chronicle exactly how all of this happened. Lastly, it will act as a way to keep The Walking Dead fans occupied during the break between seasons.
If you really think about it, this is an incredibly groundbreaking companion series. Sort of like Better Call Saul was to Breaking Bad (both AMC shows by the way), Fear could very easily be just as exciting as the original. I actually think it will pick up new viewers too. I know a lot of people too overwhelmed to catch up with all of the seasons of TWD who will gladly start fresh with a new series set in LA.
Anyway, you're probably wondering when to prepare for this? The rumors that are swirling around right now say June 12th is the date! There's not much information yet, but the only teaser trailer that was released is amazing...
