The zombies are getting closer.

Days after treating Comic-Con fans to a new trailer, AMC has released the poster for “Fear the Walking Dead.” The show’s August premiere date is fast approaching and, as the artwork suggests, it won’t be long until a game of hoops outside is considered too risky.

“Fear the Walking Dead” is a prequel to the cabler’s widely successful “The Walking Dead.” It’s set in Los Angeles before the outbreak that would turn humans into either flesh-eating savages or their dinners. It stars Cliff Curtis, Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey.

Robert Kirkman, who created “The Walking Dead” comics that serve as the basis for the first series, co-created “Fear the Walking Dead” and and co-wrote the pilot with exec producer Dave Erickson, who serves as showrunner. “Dead’s” Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert are also exec producing. Erickson told Comic-Con attendees that there were no plans to for the two stories to overlap.

In March, AMC gave a two-season order to “Fear the Walking Dead.” The six-episode first season will debut at 9 p.m. on Aug. 23 and season two will premiere in 2016. “The Walking Dead” will return on Oct. 11.
