Fear The Walking Dead acts as both a spinoff to the original series and as a companion, as the show begins at the start of the zombie apocalypse and will eventually catch up with the timeline of The Walking Dead — but won’t apparently crossover with the original series.
Still, the folks at AMC are giving fans what the numbers suggest they want — more The Walking Dead. If all goes well with Fear The Walking Dead, there could be a show on every week of the year, which is insane to think about but might be a strategy that works in the show’s favor.
Better Call Saul was a hit for AMC and won over critics who were skeptical of the idea of spinning off Breaking Bad. That’s the idea here with Fear The Walking Dead, and hopefully the results are the same.
