As anticipated fans await the arrival of the new AMC spin off series Fear The Walking Dead, show execs finally gave fans the first inside look into the show and now one of the producers is giving viewers a little insight about what to expect when the season debuts this summer.
Executive producer Greg Nicotero recently sat down for an interview with Melty, an online entertainment publication, to dish on the upcoming series and he says the new show will not be a carbon copy of the original zombie series and he also said that some of the episodes will be based on real life events.
According to Nicotero, viewers won't get any backstory about the upcoming series because "it's not necessarily important."
"What's important in the spin-off is how people react to it. It really is a fascinating statement on current society, because we get most of our information from our iPads and our phones. There have been things that have been happening in recent years... When you hear stories like that, about a guy who attacked someone and bit their face off, imagine how we reacted to that news story at the time."
Back in March, Nicotero sat down with International Business Times alongside The Walking Dead actor Andrew Lincoln and he reported a few details about the direction of the new series.
"So having the show set in Los Angeles [and] at a completely different time as walkers are beginning to take over the world... The idea, much like our show, it's really about the relationships and about the families and how they handle it and deal with it, so it's fascinating."
As of now, show creator Robert Kirkman has yet to announce an official release date, but it has been confirmed that the companion series will be set in Los Angeles and has already received a two-season order from the network.
Season one will debut in late summer and will consist of 6 one-hour long episodes while season 2 will air sometime next year.
