So that’s what all that running was about.
AMC has released the first three minutes from the first episode of “Fear the Walking Dead,” showing Frank Dillane’s character Nick in a scene that looks to be the lead-up to the teaser from June that shows him tearing through back alleys of Los Angeles away from… something.
The cabler has spent the week teasing interviews and scenes from the “Walking Dead” prequel series in anticipation of its Sunday, Aug. 23, premiere. Earlier this week, AMC shared a video of executive producer Robert Kirkman promising “zombies unlike we’ve ever seen before.”
Fans overseas will not have to wait long to see the series either. It was announced Thursday that, starting Aug. 24, the show will be available to Amazon Prime subscribers in Germany and Austria. Amazon Prime users in the U.K. will have access to the series next year, while other countries can watch the premiere simultaneously with its U.S. debut on AMC global channels worldwide.
In addition to Kirkman, who co-created “The Walking Dead” comic books, “Fear the Walking Dead” exec producers include Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, David Alpert, Adam Davidson and showrunner David Erickson. Stars also include Kim Dickens, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Cliff Curtis.
