Other Cast

So far, two other major actors have cast onto the show. They are Mercedes Mason and Elizabeth Rodriguez. They are both known for their work on Netflix's "Orange is the New Black"

The Shows Location is...?

Fear the Walking Dead will be set in Los Angeles and will take place during the early days of the apocalypse. Due to the show being in the beginning of the apocalypse, the walkers will not be as gory, because they haven't been out in the world for 2.5 years (which is the amount of time between the start of the apocalypse and Rick's group arriving to Alexandria in the original show).

Pilot Episode Script Leaked!?!?

Back in January, a script leaked online for the pilot episode of FTWD. Many people speculated that it was fake - until the script correctly predicted the actual title of the show. At first, the show was dubbed "The Walking Dead: Cobalt". When the script leaked, we all thought the title was indeed Cobalt, leading many to believe the title was not "Fear the Walking Dead". Here is the first page of the script.

When Will the Show Premiere???

We do know the show will premiere this summer, but there have been many different dates swirling around the internet for the premiere date of Fear the Walking Dead, some of those dates include June 12th, which would put the show in a Friday timeslot, and July 12th, which would give the show a Sunday timeslot. However the only real clue we have regarding the premiere date is that it will be in the summer.

Other News

There is not much other news regarding the show, but we do know that we will not find out how the apocalypse started.

During The Walking Dead's fifth season finale, we were given a short 16-second trailer titled "Good Morning Los Angeles" Check it out below
