A School Counselor Ignores Student’s Warning of a Virus or Microbe Outbreak in New Promo for ‘Fear the Walking Dead’

AMC has released a new trailer for Fear the Walking Dead, an upcoming six-episode companion series to The Walking Dead, where a student warns his guidance counselor Madison (Kim Dickens) of a virus or microbe outbreak being reported in five states. The skeptical guidance counselor tells the kid to stay off the Internet and that authorities would have notified them about the outbreak. Fear the Walking Dead is scheduled to premiere in August 2015, with a second season airing in 2016.

What did the world look like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in ‘The Walking Dead’? This spin-off set in Los Angeles, following new characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world, will answer that question.

Starring Kim Dickens (‘Gone Girl‘, ‘Sons of Anarchy‘), Cliff Curtis (‘Missing‘, ‘Gang Related‘), Frank Dillane (‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince‘) and Alycia Debnam Carey (‘Into the Storm‘) and Executive Produced by Dave Erickson (‘Marco Polo‘, ‘Sons of Anarchy‘), Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and David Alpert.
