Fear the Walking Dead Video: Scared Student Sounds an Early Alarm

“You need to spend less time online, OK?”

While that’s sound advice if your days are being eaten up by cat videos and listicles, it’s not that great an idea if you’re days away from actually being eaten.

Yet that’s the advice that Fear the Walking Dead guidance counselor Madison — played by Kim Dickens (Deadwood) — gives a frightened student who relays reports of a mysterious, quick-spreading illness that’s already hit five states.

The Walking Dead prequel is set in the Los Angeles area during the early days of the zombie apocalypse, which means that members of the general public have yet to learn what fresh decaying hell awaits them in the coming years. And, like Dickens’ character, they’re inclined to believe that the authorities would have any emergency situation under control. (Hindsight is 20/20, eh?)

The series’ cast also includes Cliff Curtis (Gang Related), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince), Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm) and Shawn Hatosy (Southland).

Press PLAY on the clip above to get a taste of the nascent hysteria in advance of Fear the Walking Dead‘s six-episode first season, slated to premiere later this summer.

    They should show more interesting videos..people are starting to doubt this show potential.
    I hope they are showing this promos to maintain the show under locks and keep the good things for the premiere…but this is not going to make new and older fans of TWD want to see the show.
    Hope this is as good if not better than TWD..
    I have faith 😊

    “The authorities would tell us …”
    I love Kim Dickens but she almost deserves to be bitten just for saying or believing something that stupid.
    The 1st Season has only 6 episodes that’s too short

    can’t wait, sounds interesting.

    That being said, you should put “The 100” after Alycia Debnam Carey’s name instead of “into the storm”.. so that people binge the first 2 seasons of that show and hopefully will tune in for season 3 next year!

    It’s definitely worth watching ;)
