Fear The Walking Dead Gets UK Release Date
British fans of The Walking Dead will soon be able to watch its spinoff series Fear The Walking Dead – as long as they’re with BT.
The apocalyptic prequel to AMC’s popular zombie drama is due to air in the UK on August 31st as part of AMC’s launch in the UK via BT’s youview platform.
The show will follow the early days of the apocalypse that rendered the world tortured by zombies, and supposedly give explanation to how it all happened. This time, however, the plot will be set in Los Angeles and follow the lives of guidance counsellor Madison (Kim Dickens) and her family (Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam-Carey), with the family joining with other survivors as they attempt to survive both the plague and the zombies it creates.
According to showrunner Dave Erikson, there are currently no plans to cross the show over with its sister series, functioning more as a second exploration of that universe.
Fear The Walking Dead will premiere in the UK on AMC from BT at 9pm on August 31, while it airs from August 23 on AMC in the US.
