Fear The Walking Dead - The Walking Dead Spinoff - Gets A Spinoff
Fear The Walking Dead is currently airing in the US on AMC and over here on AMC Global. (Exclusive to BT - with the rest of UK audiences getting access to the show on Amazon Prime next year). And now Variety have confirmed that AMC is producing a spin-off of The Walking Dead spin-off with a half-hour web-based mini episode that will air in 16 parts during the ad breaks of the Fear The Walking Dead season one finale and online simultaneously.
Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 will feature a zombie attack on an airplane during the initial outbreak depicted in the main spin-off show. Of the people facing the attack mid-flight, there will be one survivor that makes it out to join the cast of Fear The Walking Dead in its longer second season.
Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV, said “Flight 462 is a great extension of the world of Fear and will engage fans across multiple platforms with another riveting story set at the start of the fall of civilization. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dave Erickson and David Wiener on another piece of original content. Watching how they'll bring one of these new characters to the second season of Fear will be really exciting for viewers to follow.”
The show that started it all, The Walking Dead, will of course return to Fox in the UK on the 12th October at 9pm.
