Fear the Walking Dead, AMC's companion series to the Walking Dead series, premireres this Sunday. To excite fans of the franchise, AMC released the opening scene of the new post-apocalyptic series. The clip shows Frank Dillane as Nick Clark, a drug addict who wakes up to a gruesome nightmare that sets the series in motion.
Living in the same universe as The Walking Dead, Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
The series will premiere in the U.S., on Sunday, August 23 at 9PM ET/PT with an extended 90-minute episode. You can watch the opening scene below:
