The countdown to another Walking Dead series continues. A spin off series, “Fear the Walking Dead” will pretty much tell similar themes of the main series but from a different angle.
Dave Erickson, the show runner for the new series, has now given a lengthy interview to The Live Feed where he’s revealed more details about the new show, the possibility of crossovers with “The Walking Dead,” and the ultimate plans for the series.
Calling the show a “parallel story [rather] than a prequel,” the first season will basically take place during the initial period where Rick Grimes was in a coma and does “tie very specifically into the pilot of the original.” It also means that people in this world aren’t used to ‘walkers’ yet or resigned to the hopeless survivalist life that Rick and his people have long adjusted to.
Who knows if this will actually be any good. However I found the video game series, the episode one, better in some cases than the actual television show. The only other thing we know is that the cause of the outbreak will not be revealed in this series. I am sure they will save that one for the main series and the end of it!
