The Walking Dead Spinoff Gets Terrible Title

at .  Updated at . Comments

If you were waiting for a really kick-ass title for The Walking Dead spinoff, well, you're about to be disappointed.

Drum roll please...The name of the companion series is...

Fear the Walking Dead.

We already know the spinoff will star Kim Dickens and Cliff Curtis, and will take place at the beginning of the end of the world as we know it, so all is not lost. It's just a very unfortunate title choice for a highly anticipated series.

The logo is far more menacing than the title itself, so that's something to think about. Overall, pretty much anything but this title would have been a winner. 

Look for the first trailer to air this Sunday after The Walking Dead Season 5 finale.
