One of the new shows that I am most excited about is Fear The Walking Dead. If you’ve been anxiously devouring every little detail they’ve been releasing about the new show, then you’re going to absolutely love the new poster they unveiled at Comic Con this year.
One of the shows that I am most looking forward to is definitely the spin-off of The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead. I anxiously watch for news on the new show, with TWD being one of my favorite sci fi shows to watch. And if you’re like me, then you’re wondering how this will compare to TWD – will it be just as good, better or worse?
There’s a lot of craziness going down on The Walking Dead right now as the survivors do their best to settle into their new digs and get comfortable, which is not always an easy task considering damn near everyone and everything they’ve encountered over the previous five seasons has tried to kill them in one way or another. But you can forget all about that for the moment, as the long gestating spinoff, maybe called Cobalt maybe called Fear the Walking Dead, has been picked up for multiple seasons and we now have our first look at the upcoming series.
Deadline reports that AMC has given the go ahead for two seasons of the new series, which marks the second consecutive time that they’ve doled out multi-season commitments to shows that have not even aired yet. Recently, they pulled the same maneuver with Breaking Bad offshoot Better Call Saul, and this latest makes sense by the same logic: both are connected to massively popular shows, so why the hell wouldn’t you want to capitalize on that momentum?
The Walking Dead is always a hot topic, but as AMC’s hit zombie series is on its annual midseason hiatus, there’s been a lot of news about the upcoming spinoff, maybe titled Cobalt, but more recently being referred to as Fear the Walking Dead (its unclear, however, if this is the series name or the title of the pilot episode). This latest story involves both of these shows and how they may crossover, even before the companion series hits the airwaves.
There may be some spoilers beyond this point. Just a head’s up.
