Fear the Walking Dead premiered with the highest ratings in cable history. Fans couldn’t seem to get enough of AMC’s original stories about the zombie apocalypse. Fear continued with the themes that fans love about the original series The Walking Dead. It also had one thing the original didn’t, the beginning.
Fans were hoping to get answers. How did it happen, what caused it? Where did it start? While some of those answers may never be given, details from the first season lead you to believe it was a very quick change in the world and hell broke loose with no warning. One big issue with season one however was the lack of action. Where was the fight for your life story lines that were a huge part of The Walking Dead? Well it looks like fans may get to see more of that fight for what is yours mentality in season two.
Executive Producer Dave Erickson gave fans a few clues to what the survivors will be facing in the upcoming season.
“You’re going to see a bunch of sea bound refugees over the course of Season 2. And much in the same way that we have taken steps to survive and compromised our morals to do so, we’re going to have to deal with some people who have very similar objectives, and the default setting for most of these people is not going to be, let’s all live in harmony and try to build a new community. It’s going to be, how do we protect what’s ours? How do we protect our family? So there’s going to be a very serious threat from other people, as there is constantly on The Walking Dead.”
If you are caught up on the series, you will remember that the finale ended with Travis (Cliff Curtis), Madison (Kim Dickens) and the family trying to get away from LA where the virus was taking over. They meet up with Strand (Coleman Domingo), a rich but somewhat untrustworthy man. Strand has saved Nick, (Frank Dillane) from mistreatment in a holding facility. They all head to Strand’s home and ultimately plan on escaping by using Strand’s yacht “Abigail”. The teaser trailer picks up there.
Season Two of Fear the Walking Dead will air on April 10th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Fans will see the first seven of 15 episodes before a midseason hiatus. This season, The Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick will air immediately following the episode, something all Walking Dead fans are looking forward too. If you haven’t caught up on season one, all episodes are available for streaming exclusively on Hulu. In the meantime, check out the teaser trailer below.
