The spin-off series promises to offer fans something different to 'The Walking Dead'.
'Fear The Walking Dead', the spin-off to AMC’s hit zombie series 'The Walking Dead', has been given a premiere date of August 23rd at 9 p.m, with a special 90 minute episode. The announcement was made during AMC’s panel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, where a special series trailer was also shown to the audience.
Kim Dickens stars in AMC’s ‘Fear The Walking Dead’.
The series is being billed as a prequel/spin off to 'The Walking Dead' and stars Gone Girl’s Kim Dickens as well as Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam-Carey. In the trailer shown at SDCC, Dickens is seen as guidance counsellor Madison and shows the time before the zombie apocalypse hits.
Coleman was filmed telling fellow passengers “Yes, I am Chad L. Coleman.”
Coleman starred as Tyreese on the AMC series.
“I wanna know where my humanitarians are!” Coleman is seen yelling while walking up and down the carriage. The actor then tells passengers, “Yes, I am Chad L. Coleman. I am on ‘The Wire,’ ‘The Walking Dead,’ I’m not trying to play no f---ing games with you! Yes, I’m an actor! You want me on TMZ, record it.’
Dickens will play a guidance counsellor in the as yet untitled spin off series.
Fresh off interrogating Ben Affleck on the big screen, Kim Dickens will soon be battling zombies, in the as yet untitled 'Walking Dead' companion series. The 49 year old actress, who starred in Gone Girl earlier this year, is also known for playing Joanie Stubbs in the HBO series 'Deadwood' and for her recurring role in 'Sons of Anarchy's' final season.
Gone Girl's Kim Dickens has been cast in 'The Walking Dead' spin-off
According to Deadline Dickens will play the female lead opposite ‘Missing’ actor Cliff Curtis with the pilot set to begin shooting sometime early next year.
The Walking Dead just took the gore level up to 11.
Sunday's episode of The Walking Dead featured one of the most gruesome scenes of the entire series so far. Twitter sparked into life after Gareth (Andrew J. West), leader of Terminus, forced Lawrence Gilliard Jr's Bob to watch as he took a bite out of his newly amputated, charred leg.
Remember The Walking Dead season 4? Well, things just got weirder
"We didn't want to hurt you before," Gareth tells Bob, who had woken up chained to a post. "We didn't want to pull you away from your group or scare you. These are not things that we wanted to do," he added.

The Walking Dead just got renewed for a sixth season, but plans for its spin-off are in full swing, too.
The upcoming spin-off for The Walking Dead keeps getting more alive by the day. After AMC announced a pilot order back in September, character descriptions for the cast have now surfaced. Are they as intriguing as the ones we know and love on The Walking Dead? Let’s take a look.
Prepare yourselves: a Walking Dead spin-off is happening
According to TVLine, the series will apparently follow two families and an additional survivor: Sean Cabrera and his son Cody, Nancy Tompkins and her two children Nick and Ashley, and a lone wolf by the name of Andrea (don't worry: it's a different Andrea). Sean is described as a Latino male in his 40’s “trying to do right by everyone in his life,” while his teenage son, Cody, is full of rebellion. The Tompkins, on the other hand, seem like they’ll add a bit of dysfunction. Nancy looks like “the girl next door” with an edge, and her children are opposites from each other in the sense that the son Nick doesn’t want to flee, but the daughter Ashley wants to “get out of dodge.” As far as Andrea goes, she has “retreated to the outskirts of the city to recover after a horrible marriage.”

Lincoln, Reedus and Cohen are all in agreement: season 5 is big. Also, some season 4 spoilers follow
After four seasons of some pretty intense zombie action, The Walking Dead enters its fifth this October. And according to some of the stars of the show, The Walking Dead Season 5 opens with some NSFTV stuff.
For those of you who don't remember what happened at the end of The Walking Dead season 4
"This episode is so disturbing," said actress Lauren Cohan whose character Maggie Greene spent the majority of season 4 fighting to find her husband, Glen. "Some of the the stuff they shot yesterday, I don't know if it'll make it to TV,” she added.
'The Walking Dead' producers say that the show could go on until season 12, but can its ratings keep improving like they have been?
There’s nothing better than your favorite show being in its fourth season and hearing from its creators that they already have plans for season number twelve. It’s exactly what fans of 'The Walking Dead' got when showrunner Scott Gimple and producer David Alpert revealed the info. Gimple started it all when he said the show could go on for ten seasons a few months back, but Alpert recently backed him up stating that, whether 'The Walking Dead' makes it to season 12 or not, they already know where they’re going to take the hit zombie series.
The Walking Dead could last till season 12?
"I happen to love working from source material, specifically because we have a pretty good idea of what season 10 is gonna be," Aplert said at an appearance at the Produced By conference this week. "We know where Season 11 and 12...we have benchmarks and milestones for those seasons if we're lucky enough to get there." The ones involved with the show aren’t the only ones who feel this way. Robert Kirkman, the creator of 'The Walking Dead' comic, has said that he knows where he’ll be taking the comic for issue number 200, and he even knows how it’s going to end. Started in October 2003, the book is currently at issue 128.

Take a look at Rick looking all angry below. And there are major spoilers for various Walking Dead properties all over the place.
The Walking Dead season 4 ended in high-octane fashion: Rick, Daryl, Michonne and Carl found Terminus but were soon wise to eerie feeling that surrounded it. A gun fight followed, and the subsequent dance that ensued saw the gang reunited, albeit locked up in a metal box.
In the photo, it looks as though Rick might be opening said metal box with a view to following through with his end-of-season words: “They’re screwing with the wrong people.” It was a solid end to a weird season, but one can’t help but thinking the whole ‘Rick’s back’ storyline has been done before, when he recovered from the loss of his wife.

There are spoilers ahead. If you haven't watched 'The Walking Dead' season 4, then what are you doing?
Walking Dead’s fourth season was a fractured affair, and one that got better with age. Once we’d recovered from Hershal’s death and the attack on the prison, our survivors were dispersed into groups as AMC’s zombie drama explored some of the darkest themes of its hugely popular run.
The season’s finale offered up a beautifully poised cliffhanger to lead us into season 5. Although cliffhanger might not be the right word, given we know the people of Terminus aren’t friendly, and we know Rick’s going to go all out to survive, especially considering what he’s done to get to this point.
As season 4 ends on a cliffhanger, season 5 promises more action
For those of you that watched the season 4 finale of The Walking Dead on Sunday night (Sunday, March 30) will know that Rick will do almost anything to survive, and that includes biting a man’s neck off. And survival is a motif continued by the first poster for season 5, which features Rick crouching solemnly, holding a gun; the word “survive” emblazoned above him. You can view it right here on AMC's Walking Dead Facebook page.
"Where did you get the watch!?" bellows Rick as he tries to get to the bottom of what's happening at Terminus
It brings us back full circle to the pilot episode and the first season in general, when ideas on the zombie apocalypse were first forming and the walkers seemed like a genuine threat, even attacking alone or in pairs. Nowadays, a single walker doesn’t represent much of a problem for our survivors, but Rick’s goals were simple: find his family, keep them alive. Survival was key.

Spoilers ahead. There's literally no point in playing Episode 1 after reading this.
It feels like an eternity since the season two of Telltale’s excellent Walking Dead game kicked off with its first episode. Now, finally, the trailer for episode two has been released, bringing with it an imminent release date and major hype for the next instalment in Clem’s story.
Clem has to fight for herself in Season 2 of The Walking Dead
In the trailer, we are confronted with a new character; a man hell bent on finding the group Clem came to loggerheads with in the first episode. It’s pretty obvious why he wants to find them: Rebecca and the baby. Clem seems stuck in the middle, talking to the enigmatic man while still travelling with her new group. With this new trailer for A House Divided, we edge closer to the actual release, which should have a date soon enough if Telltale’s previous patters are repeated.
Spoilers ahead. Anyone who reads this without watching S04E09: 'After', will have it ruined for them. That much should be obvious...
AMC’s ratings behemoth The Walking Dead returned to American TV screens on Sunday night (Feb 9th) and last night on FOX for British viewers. We re-join zombie dystopia after the devastating battle that left the prison decimated, our beloved survivors scattered, and a few key characters dead or missing.
Let's just kill Carl off and be done with it
The mid-season premiere focused on Rick Grimes and his son Carl as they scavenge for supplies in a dilapidated town, which, surprisingly – considering it’s walking distance from the prison - is full of nourishing goodies like a 112-ounce can of chocolate pudding. This is as good a time as any for me to list the reasons why The Walking Dead isn’t very good any more:
