‘Fear the Walking Dead’ timeline, the ‘infected’ and overall plot

Fear the Walking Dead producer Dave Erickson recently shared some spoilers concerning the new show during a TCA panel, explaining how the new series will explore the very beginning of the zombie outbreak.

“We tried to slow burn the story and make it about the anxiety, tension and paranoia that come with outbreak as much as it’s about zombies,” he stated.

Although Fear the Walking Dead is based in the same world as The Walking Dead, Erickson also cleared up some rumors of a potential crossover between the two series.

Fear the Walking Dead title card“Rick’s [Andrew Lincoln] coma was approximately four to five weeks. If you track the trajectory of our story, the starting point is not dissimilar,” he revealed.

“There may be a season where we do a major time cut, because that’s interesting to me, [but] the thinking for season 1 and 2 isn’t about, ‘How do we intersect with them or catch up with the original show.’”

Erickson also discussed how the show would focus more on the families directly impacted by the virus and not go into detail about the government handled the initial outbreak.

“We’re never going to tell the story from the perspective of someone from the CDC or military — not the generals or politicians — but you will see military, and you will get a sense of first responders when they went sideways and what they did to protect their families,” he revealed in the interview. “That’s very much a part of the arc of the season.”

“We call them ‘infected’ and not ‘walkers,’” Erickson stated, referencing the term used in The Walking Dead to refer to the zombies, a clear indication of the different approach in Fear.

The show stars Cliff Curtis, Mercedes Mason, Ruben Blades, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Colman Domingo, Lorenzo James Henrie and Elizabeth Rodriguez.

Fear the Walking Dead hits the airwaves August 23 on AMC.
