The series premiere of ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ is just 5 days away and in preparation of the big event AMC has just released a new video that gives fans and inside look at the characters.
The trailer, which runs 2-minutes and 50 seconds, features commentary by executive producer Gale Anne Hurde and the actors amid scenes from the show; you can see the video below.
The core cast is all here and does a good job of explaining who their character is and how they connect to one another.
It is a smart way to get viewers invested before the show even begins, allowing them to feel as if they already know them.
Set in Los Angeles, FTWD is a companion series to ‘The Walking Dead’ and will focus on the early days of the zombie apocalypse.
Initially, it will play a bit more like a drama, revolving around a blended, dysfunctional family trying to co-exist when the world as they know it comes to a screeching halt.
While it will show how society breaks down because of the “virus”, it will not explain how the virus came to be.
The series stars Cliff Curtis as Travis, Kim Dickens as Madison, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Liza, and Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris.
