The undead apocalypse is fresh and shiny and new — and still full of gnarly surprises — as seen in the opening minutes of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead.
Set in the same universe as the well-watched The Walking Dead, the offshoot (premiering this Sunday at 9/8c, with a 90-minute episode) promises “a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family in Los Angeles.”
The story follows high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (played by Friday Night Lights‘ Kim Dickens) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis, Gang Related), while Frank Dillane (Sense8), Alycia Debnam-Carey (The 100), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange Is the New Black), Ruben Blades (Gideon’s Crossing), Mercedes Mason (NCIS: LA) and Lorenzo James Henrie (7th Heaven) round out the cast.
This edit of the series cold open also includes a first look at the unsettling FtWD title card. The official Comic-Con trailer is embedded below.
