Fear the Walking Dead

TVLine Items: Fear the Walking Dead Poster, Castle's New Tech Geek & More

The zombie apocalypse might not begin until the end of Fear the Walking Dead‘s first season — but you can catch an early glimpse of it in the show’s official art.

AMC on Wednesday released the poster for its upcoming Walking Dead spinoff, which depicts a walker threatening to ruin a nice game of basketball. (But at least the sunset is pretty!)

Fear the Walking Dead premieres Sunday, Aug. 23, at 9/8c. In the meantime, scroll down to see the series’ ominous artwork.

    poster for Fear The Walking Dead looks pretty good. glad the premiere date for Manhattan’s new season is finally announced! hope the show will do well against big fall shows on Tuesday nights.

    A “high strung” tech analyst for Castle? Groan. Another clichéd half-nuts geek? Please. I would rather we saw more of Tori.

  3. I had my money on Vik Sahay for high-strung tech geek on Castle, though keeping with the Canadian options, Shaun Majumder also would have worked well.

    We’lll have to see who this new tech replaces. Familiar extras were vanishing by what seemed the bus load last season. The 1.6 demo isn’t allowing for the bigger budgets of past seasons. Winter/ Hawley will have to cut back the excesses Marlowe had.

    Ok, so we got a new techie guy, a little wacky, we got Castle who loves the gadgetry and actually has always been good a retrieving data, we got Ryan who was the techie guy before Tory. Also, a new security woman who is supposed to be attractive and who Castle spends lots of time with and we got Jon who knows nothing about computers, etc but certainly is always in play with the ladies. And, of course Beckett who all of them have tried to impress over the years. Prediction: Testosterone wars.

    Castle is making a few changes that we do know of. The most important would be for Winter/Hawley not to follow the aimless meandering of season 7. There was nothing that bound those episodes together, it was the strangest season. It became evident in the slide of the demo numbers in the first ten episodes, a loss of 33% that it never recovered . My suggestion for what it’s worth is to serialize the first eleven episodes and the same with the remainder .That would mean changing from the case of the week, but isn’t the that the problem.
    Any suggestion now is to late, filming started yesterday.
