New "Daredevil," "Jessica," "Luke" Details More details about Marvel's various Netflix shows have come out in the days following the streaming service's Television Critics Association presentation earlier this week. Here's a breakdown:
First season show runner Steven De Knight says that despite the inclusion of The Punisher (Jon Bernthal) in the second season, don't expect it to ramp up the violence to be more akin to the last film about the character (2008's "Punisher: War Zone"). De Knight says:
"The first season of 'Daredevil' was violent, but I always say it was more implied. It wasn't nearly as violent as 'The Walking Dead,' a show that I love. On that, if somebody were to crush somebody's head in a car door, you would've seen the head crush on screen, but we didn't want to go quite that far. We wanted to keep it right around »

AMC conducted their Television Critics Association presentation yesterday where they used the opportunity to announce that they have already ordered a second season of their yet to premiere spin-off series "Fear the Walking Dead".

Show runner Dave Erickson confirms to The Live Feed that we will Not see the cause of the outbreak, and the series will not rush forward to 'catch-up' with the mother show. In fact the first season takes place only over a three-week period:

AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead is one of the year's most anticipated new shows, and its showrunners and cast hit the stage at the Summer TV Press Tour to field questions following their first Comic-Con fan frenzy last month. The cast already loves the attention that comes from being related to “the mothership” — as The Walking Dead was repeatedly referred to — and not surprisingly, the cast members are all Andrew Lincoln fanboys and girls. Here’s what we found out.New City, New Characters Fear the Walking Dead, or, as the producers refer to it, Fear, is set in East Los Angeles, because as executive producer Dave Erickson explained, "We wanted an urban backdrop and a direct counterpoint to the original show." But don’t worry — it’s not filled with hipsters like the L.A. of New York Times trend pieces. Instead, the prequel focuses on the Clark »

Fear the Walking Dead producers offered new information about the upcoming The Walking Dead spin-off series from the Television Critic's Association press tour in Beverly Hills on Friday. As a result we now know how many episodes will fill out Season 2, the rough timeline for Season 1, and whether a crossover with The Walking Dead has reached the drawing board.
Season 2 of Fear the Walking Dead was preemptively ordered months ago before Season 1 had finished production on its six episode run. AMC's bullishness about the series was clear and a larger episode count for Season 2 anticipated, and that's exactly what we will get in the summer of 2016.
Executive producer David Erickson confirmed that the Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 episode count will stretch to 15 total episodes. That works out to two more episodes than Season 2 of The Walking Dead and only one shy of current The Walking Dead seasons.

"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 »

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..."

“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.

“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’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. »
