Details about AMC’s hotly anticipated spinoff to its hit zombie series “The Walking Dead” have been scarce, but thanks to a tweet today from executive producer Robert Kirkman, we now know the show’s title: “Fear the Walking Dead.”
USA Today notes: “The show will also be centered around the zombie apocalypse in the original ‘Dead,’ but will be set in Los Angeles. AMC has already given the show a two-season order. The six-episode first season will premiere on the network in late summer and the second season will run in 2016.”
Kim Dickens of “Gone Girl” and “House of Cards” and Frank Dillane of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” are among the new show’s cast members, the report notes.
