If you’ve been watching The Walking Dead but have missed out on the new Fear the Walking Dead series, you can catch up on the first three episodes over at AMC’s website. In addition, if you have been watching the new series, you can get a sneak peek of episode 4 as Madison starts to realize what is really going on outside.
In case you’re out of the loop, Fear the Walking Dead is the spin off from the popular The Walking Dead series on AMC. Fear the Walking Dead follows high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) at the onset of the zombie outbreak in L.A..
The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
While The Walking Dead explores the lives of Frank Grimes and company after the outbreak has occurred, the spin off examines the thoughts and actions of people while the outbreak is occurring as they come to realize just what exactly is happening, and must come to terms with the changes to their daily lives. It’s an interesting new take on the story we all know in The Walking Dead, and even though we know the final outcome – total zombie outbreak, in some ways the new series is a lot more suspenseful than it’s predecessor.
In addition to catching up on the past three episodes and getting a sneak peak of the fourth episode which airs this Sunday on AMC, you can also watch interviews with the cast and get behind the scenes looks at the latest horror-drama from AMC.
