UPDATE: AMC just made it official! Two seasons have been ordered for a launch late summer 2015. First one will consist of 6 episodes. Second one could get more.

It has not been officially announced yet but I can tell you “Fear The Walking Dead”, the inevitable spin-off, is ordered to series a few weeks after the pilot was shot. It can’t come as a surprise since the original show is such a success for AMC. 

Described as a family drama, Fear The Walking Dead (previously known as Cobalt) takes place in Los Angeles and will tell the story of the early days of the epidemic through the eyes of a family, without any tie with the comic books. We don’t know much more except a lot of the action happens in an hospital. All characters are new, played by Kim Dickens as Miranda (Deadwood, Sons Of Anarchy, Treme), Cliff Curtis as Sean Cabrera (Missing, Trauma, Training Day), Alycia Debnam-Carey as Ashley (The 100), Frank Dillane as Nick and many more. The pilot has been written by Dave Erickson (Low Winter Sun, Sons of Anarchy) and directed by Adam Davidson (Hell On Wheels) who never worked on the original. The shooting is expected to start in early April for a likely launch this summer, as a bridge between season 5 and season 6 of The Walking Dead. Production will move from Los Angeles for the pilot to Vancouver, Canada, for the remainder of the first season.

    How come they are now filming in BC?
    Will they be filming back to back or just 6 episodes to cover the first season?

    You claim shooting is expected in early April. However all other sources state that the pilot has already completed shooting. So why should we believe your article and claims on the title?

      I’m talking about the shooting of the SERIES. Not the PILOT, already completed. It’s pretty clear when you read the whole article…

      Did you at least read the introduction of the article before asking that question Sherri ? o_O
