AMC released a new trailer for “Fear the Walking Dead” on Friday.
In the trailer, a character identified as Nick (Frank Dillane) is seen frantically running from his home. He can’t even take the time to button his shirt, as an unseen pursuer, presumably a walker, is right on his heels.
The show is a companion series to the wildly popular “Walking Dead,” which recently concluded its fifth season. The new show, which will be set in Los Angeles, stars Rubén Blades, Mercedes Mason and Cliff Curtis.
Robert Kirkman, the writer of the graphic novels “The Walking Dead” is based on and an executive producer on the original show, will serve as executive producer on “Fear the Walking Dead,” as well, along with executive producers Greg Nicotero, Gale Ann Hurd, and David Alpert.
“Fear the Walking Dead” premiers in August on AMC.
