The Walking Dead in it's five season run has been awesome. The only problem? The fans crave more and more of it. Through-out the course of it's five seasons the show has introduced us to memorable character like Daryl, Rick, and Glenn. It has also introduced us to amazing villains like the Governor, the Termites,and most recently the wolves. Now again even though The Walking Dead is awesome the fans of the show crave more, and AMC knowing that decided to give it to them.
Again, it's coming to us this summer! That means that all the fans who miss the Walking Dead when it is on break can watch the spin-off! So we essentially have zombies all the time. Thanks AMC! Now the writers of this show are completely free-styling it. They don't have the comics like the TWD does. I still believe it's going to answer many questions on how the outbreak started and stuff like that. We missed all of that since Rick was in a three month coma before the outbreak.
Here's the official synopsis for the series.
"The spinoff takes place during the same zombie apocalypse depicted on The Walking Dead but in a different location. It revolves around Sean Cabrera (Curtis), a divorced teacher and Nancy Tompkins (Dickens), a female guidance councilor. Dillane plays the Nancy's son Nick, who has battled a drug problem. Debnam Carey plays the Nancy's ambitious daughter Ashley"
Doesn't that look awesome? I am excited!
I hope the show answers some of the questions. They're listed below, and if you have any questions feel free to write them in comments.
Where is the military, and how did it fall apart?
How come there is no form of communication?
How come they are no advertised safe zones where people can get to?
How is the world bombarded with Walkers in a short span of just three months.
Where do all the people go to fearing the apocalypse?
Where did it all begin?
Who did people initially get infected?
Where did it all start?
Who started it?
Was it intentional or not?
See. A lot of questions that the Walking Dead never answered. But then again Rick was in a coma for that period of time. However he could have gotten up, and asked these questions, and in the five years that it has been why didn't he?
Now if you saw the Fear the Walking Dead trailer you know how awesome this show is going to be.
"Good Morning Los Angeles, If your not feeling well go home and take care of yourselves."
That's a pretty eerie voice to start with. The trailer confirmed a few things, like what caused the apocalypse, and what the government was advertising the people do.
The trailer also confirmed that the government had no idea what the flu was capable of and was taken completely by surprise. This possibly could have led to it's downfall.
Also this explains the mass panic. Remember when Rick initially woke up. There were Walkers all over the place. This means that people flooded hospitals in order to get vaccines? Not sure but could be a theory.
Also on the pilot remember this moment?
The cars are all trying to leave the city. This pretty much confirms that the big cities including Atlanta were overrun first, and people were trying to escape towards the country where they knew since they were less people it would be much less densely populated.
Also the flu clearly was airborne, and that's why it infected people. But how come that form of getting infected not work on TWD. Plot holes?
We also know that it is going to focus on the lives of two families, and grow from their. I hope they carry on the tradition of killing off characters because that is one of the reasons the Walking Dead is so awesome.
So what do you expect out of Fear the Walking Dead?
