The Zombie world just got a whole lot bigger…
AMC has confirmed that the highly-talked about web series, Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 362 is a go, with the first episode set to air this Sunday, October 4th.
Rumors of the web series had been swirling for months, so this is welcome news for fans of the Dead universe, as it opens up a whole new line of stories.
It will also have a direct impact on FTWD, as AMC revealed that one character from Flight 462 will join the cast of Fear in its second season.
The web series will start on the 4th, the same night of Fear The Walking Dead‘s finale, and then continue the following weeks during commercials of The Walking Dead in 1-minute scenes.
Webisodes will also be available online, so viewers can watch on multiple platforms.
Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 will tell the story of a group of passengers aboard a commercial airplane who discover someone among them is infected.
It will be set during the onset of the outbreak and as the series progresses more and more passengers will be in danger.
The series is written by L. Signorino and Mike Zunic and directed by Fear director of photography Michael McDonough.
Fans of FTWD might remember that during episode 3 of the show Nick noticed a plane flying overhead- a possible foreshadowing of this series.
