BRAHMM! The First ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Teaser Trailer is Here

With the first Fear the Walking Dead teaser trailer debuting for AMC’s The Walking Dead spin-off series, it’s as if October has come early. That certain sense of dread that comes every fall/winter will now also take place later this summer, with a six-episode first season pick up followed by an already green-lit second season next summer.

Entitled “Nick’s Escape,” the Fear the Walking Dead teaser trailer depicts one of our main characters, played by Frank Dillane, fleeing for his life. Equipped with a very Hans Zimmer-esque score, this teaser doesn’t really offer much of anything new from what we know about The Walking Dead universe. Since this series will depict the beginning of the zombie outbreak, for all we know Nick could be running away from a very pissed off dad whose daughter he had just had steamy, sexual relations with – he is pulling up his pants in the video. I would have the same sense of fear on my face if I were him in both situations.

It’s a cop out not to show any aspect of the zombie apocalypse, but also a brilliant marketing ploy as a teaser. After inspecting the video a few times now, I do honestly believe they’re setting this clip up to be something it’s not. They’re playing on our expectations, believing our first response will immediately resonate with the re-animated. But remember, this is just the beginning of the virus. Fear the Walking Dead could be even more of a character driven show than The Walking Dead, which could eventually lead up to the first appearance of the undead.

What did the world look like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in “The Walking Dead”? This spin-off set in Los Angeles, following new characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world, will answer that question.

Created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson, Fear the Walking Dead stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Mercedes Mason, and Rubén Blades. The series kicks off late summer 2015.
