Man runs for his life in trailer for AMC's Fear the Walking Dead

New, 36 comments

Run. That's about all we get to see in the new trailer for AMC's spinoff series, Fear the Walking Dead. The young fella hauling ass goes by the name Nick (Frank Dillane). We don't know much at all about this guy, but he's definitely running. From something. Maybe walkers?

Thanks to a Collider interview with series creator Robert Kirkman, however, we do have a bit of background on Nick.

Nick ... is pretty much a parent’s worst nightmare. He has flunked out of college, had a lot of trouble, got mixed up in some bad elements, and is definitely the problem child. And it’s exacerbated for him to be next to this perfect sister who seemingly doesn’t have anything going on in her life that is negative. But that’s not really the case, that’s just his perception. So you have these two siblings that are very much at odds with each other.

Nevertheless, there's simply no denying that there isn't much going on in this trailer. For a bit more, you can check out the first brief trailer (below), from this May, but it isn't particularly enlightening, either.

The spinoff series takes place in Los Angeles before the events of The Walking Dead. As you might expect, we'll get to see the zombie outbreak in detail and watch just how quickly society falls apart in the aftermath. The show debuts this summer.
