Watch the First Three Minutes of 'Fear the Walking Dead'
A sneak peek of Fear the Walking Dead has arrived — and it's a bit bloody.
Ahead of Sunday's premiere episode of the Walking Dead companion series, AMC debuted the sequence on Facebook on Thursday.
And just within the first three minutes, someone gets very hungry.
The spinoff drama, from The Walking Dead comic book creator Robert Kirkman and showrunner Dave Erickson, stars Cliff Curtis as Travis, a teacher who shares a son, Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie), with his ex-wife, Liza (Orange Is the New Black's Elizabeth Rodriguez), and is romantically involved with guidance counselor Madison (Kim Dickens). Frank Dillane co-stars as Madison's drug-addicted son, Nick; Alycia Debnam-Carey is Madison's ambitious daughter, Alicia — Nick's polar opposite who dreams of leaving Los Angeles for Berkeley when the apocalypse strikes. Ruben Blades co-stars as Daniel Salazar, and Mercedes Mason is set as Daniel's daughter, Ofelia, who encounters the core cast when civilization begins to crumble. Adam Davidson co-executive produced and directed the pilot.
The companion series — at least its first season — takes place at the onset of the outbreak, aka the period when Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) was in the coma during the pilot of The Walking Dead.
Fear the Walking Dead premieres on Sunday at 9 p.m. on AMC.
