Fear The Walking Dead comes to an end next week, but will continue in a way thanks to a planned web series titled Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462. The first instalment of the sixteen part show will air on AMC on October 4th, and will then be repeated during commercial breaks of the season six premiere of The Walking Dead.
From there, the Fear The Walking Dead spinoff will continue online, but is also set to be shown during future episodes of the main series (meaning there’s no way anyone is going to miss them).
The minute long episodes are actually going to introduce characters who will join the cast of Fear The Walking Dead season two, and they’re being produced by showrunner and executive producer Dave Erickson and co-executive producer David Wiener. The series is written by L. Signorino and Mike Zunic and directed by Fear The Walking Dead director of photography Michael McDonough.
Here’s the official synopsis for the spinoff:
“Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462 tells the story of a group of passengers aboard a commercial airplane during the earliest moments of the outbreak. Over the course of the series, the plane and the lives of its passengers are put in jeopardy once they discover an infected traveler.”
This sounds like a pretty cool way to expand the world of Fear The Walking Dead, don’t you think? How important it’s going to be to season two remains to be seen, but with AMC making it so easy to watch, there’s really no excuse not to check it out.
