The Fear the Walking Dead premiere will follow a special Talking Dead installment that previews The Walking Dead Season 6.

Got all that?

“Robert Kirkman, Dave Erickson and the fantastic writers, producers, cast and crew responsible for bringing ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ to life have been hard at work creating an entirely distinct and compelling new series,” said Charlie Collier, AMC and SundanceTV president.

“We join ‘Fear’ before the rise of the zombie apocalypse with an interesting family dynamic as its entry point.  After years of planning, that we are now only six weeks from sharing ‘Fear’ with the world is truly exciting.”
