“‘FEAR OF THE WALKING DEAD takes us back to the earlier, more dangerous, more terrifying days of ‘THE WALKING DEAD,’” said Kirkman. “A time when danger was lurking around every corner and the thing mostly likely to get you killed was your own ignorance of the rapidly changing world around you. The stakes are going to be higher and the ride more intense. We're going to show people all the insanity of civilization crumbling that Rick Grimes slept through. Buckle up."
