Television spinoffs are a tricky deal. Over the years, many popular shows have spawned them, but for every success story like Frasier, there’s a Joey or AfterMASH waiting to prove that not every character or story needs to continue on.
Over five seasons, The Walking Dead has only increased its massive popularity, rolling along with juggernaut ratings that aren’t on the verge of dropping anytime soon. Back in 2013, AMC announced the development of a companion show, immediately raising questions and concerns among fans about what it could entail and whether or not its very existence would dilute the brand.
Fortunately, AMC proved earlier this year with Better Call Saul that they were able to craft a spinoff show on par with its predecessor, helping ease some concerns about their next attempt: Fear the Walking Dead. Since then, there has been a steady stream of clips and stills »

"Fear the Walking Dead" will move slowly--like a walker, maybe, though there probably won't be as many of those as there are in the original series. In fact, the first season will cover just three weeks in the characters' lives. "We purposefully built the show a little more slowly," showrunner and executive producer Dave Erickson said this afternoon at TCA. "We tried to slow-burn the story to make it as much about the anxiety tension and paranoia that goes with this outbreak" instead of "confrontations with zombies," he said. AMC has already ordered a second, 15-episode season of "Fear The Walking Dead" (which the producers said they are referring to as just "Fear"), and the series will not catch up to the start of "The Walking Dead"'s first season. As a result, don't expect crossovers. "There's no intention of having character references or Easter eggs," he said, though there »

"...'Maggie Greene, the eldest daughter of 'Hershel Greene' and the wife of 'Glenn', initially is inexperienced and ignorant of the 'apocalypse', being largely sheltered at the Greene family farm...
"...but once 'Rick' and his group arrive, Maggie quickly grows into a fierce and skilled fighter, becoming proficient with weapons and participating in supply runs for the group.
"Maggie forms a casual relationship with 'Glenn' after learning of his crush on her, but insists it is purely a temporary arrangement, until she later realizes she has fallen in love with him, eventually leading to their marriage.

Sneak Peek more new 'walker' images, plus footage from upcoming Season 6 of AMC's ultra-violent 'zombie' drama "The Walking Dead", premiering October 2015:
"We set up the 'Wolves'," said director, executive producer Greg Nicotero about Season 6. "The fact that you have people that are basically utilizing the people that they kill as ammunition to build a 'zombie' army?
"We see them in 'Episode Nine' when they get to Noah's neighborhood and we see the Wolves not far in the background...
"...we realize through the course of the episode that they are setting booby traps everywhere so that they can take people's possessions...
"...and then use them as a means to build the walkers in the traps, so it's kind of a diabolical plan..."

The Walking Dead spinoff is coming on Aug. 23, a highly-anticipated companion to the original AMC zombie-fest. We know a lot about the show, starring Kim Dickens and set in Los Angeles, but one thing we haven't heard much about is how the showrunners chose the name. At the Summer TCA day, the executive producers told us about the thought process behind the title, how many other names they had, and the nickname they're already calling it. As for the title that was chosen, executive producer Dave Erickson said "there was a practical reason to do it," in terms of the franchise that The Walking Dead has already established. "We wanted 'walking dead' in the title," he said, but wanted to "avoid doing The Walking Dead: Los Angeles." It also "speaks to what the characters are going to go through," he added, while fellow exec producer David Alpert said they »
The cast and creative team of “Fear the Walking Dead” made their Television Critics’ Assn. debut on Friday when, as expected, the room of journos, reporters and critics at the press tour event asked exec producers if viewers can expect any crossovers with the flagship series “The Walking Dead.”
“There are no crossover plans right now. I would love to see those stories conflate at some point, but there are no plans to do so,” said showrunner Dave Erickson on the panel with producers David Alpert and Adam Davidson, plus cast members Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Lorenzo James Henrie and Mercedes Mason.
“There’s no intention of having Easter eggs or character references,” he added in discussing what to expect in the first six-episode season.
But with a second season order already on deck — which will consist of 15 episodes, AMC confirmed at TCA — there may be clues, »

“Fear the Walking Dead” is going to be pretty different from its “mothership,” AMC’s megahit zombie series “The Walking Dead,” according to cast and creators. Speaking onstage at the Television Critics’ Association’s summer press tour, showrunners Dave Erickson and Adam Davidson promised a much more “slow burn” of a story of how the human population disintegrates into a zombie apocalypse. “It is by design, we tried to slow burn the story,” said Erickson. “It’s as much about the anxiety and tension that goes along with this outbreak as it is about the confrontations with the zombies.” Also Read: The Scene at TCA:. »

“Into the Badlands” star and executive producer Daniel Wu, in talking up AMC as the appropriate home for his forthcoming martial-arts drama series, invoked the network’s signature genre show, “The Walking Dead.” “For us, that was the ambition of being on AMC — they elevated the zombie drama to something that was very artful,” Wu said Friday at a panel for the show during the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour. “That was sort of our ambition for this show, to take martial arts and create these fights,” Wu said, “but also create these characters that would be intriguing and have. »

The zombies in Fear The Walking Dead will be in no rush to mobilize.
At the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Beverly Hills on Friday, showrunner Dave Erickson said the walker quotient will be decidedly light in spinoff’s six-episode first season (debuting Aug. 23). “We purposely built the show a bit more slowly than the original,” said the Ep. “We call them ‘infected’ and not ‘walkers.’ There’s absolutely going to be walkers, [but] there will be a build.

AMC will use megahit “The Walking Dead” to help launch its six-episode martial-arts drama “Into the Badlands,” the network announced Friday at its TCA session in Beverly Hills.
“Into the Badlands,” which tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny (Daniel Wu) and a young boy named M.K. (Aramis Knight) who embark on a spiritual journey across a dangerous land, will bow at 10 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 15, in the timeslot usually occupied by “Talking Dead.” The post-show discussion series will air at 11 p.m. for its final three weeks this fall.
AMC effectively used the mid-season premiere of “Walking Dead” in February to open “Better Call Saul,” which went on to perform well on Mondays.
The series premiere will coincide with AMC’s newest movie event, “AMC FightFest,” a two-week martial arts movie marathon beginning Monday, Nov. 2, and running through Friday, Nov. 13. Some of the most iconic »

AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” is a prequel series to its megahit “The Walking Dead,” and being set in the same universe, the natural inclination has been for fans to clamor for some kind of crossover between the two shows. However, the people in charge of the zombie drama are in no hurry to do that at this point. “I think there is an instinct when you have two different storylines that are living in the same mythology, you want to see them conflate. I’d love to see them conflate,” showrunner Dave Erickson told TheWrap. “The first time I saw all. »

Yesterday, Entertainment Weekly released the cover of this week's issue, which featured The Walking Dead stars Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes), Norman Reedus (Daryl Dixon), and Melissa Suzanne McBride (Carol Peltier). Unfortunately, these images were for the magazine's photo shoot, and didn't depict any scenes from the upcoming Season 6. If those images weren't enough to get you that Walking Dead fix you so desperately need, then you're in luck, because AMC has released five photos featuring some of the new zombies Rick, Daryl, Carol and the rest of these Alexandria survivors will have to contend with.
AMC revealed the first trailer for The Walking Dead Season 6 during the show's Hall H panel at Comic-Con last month. The footage introduced one of the new characters, Ethan Embry's Carter, who doesn't seem to be a fan of Rick and his violent ways. Norman Reedus teased that this season will feature "a lot »
