Fear the Walking Dead season 1, episode 2 airs Sunday on AMC.
As Madison struggles to keep Nick from crippling withdrawal, Travis ventures out to find his son before Los Angeles falls.
What did the world look like as it was transforming into the horrifying apocalypse depicted in The Walking Dead? AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead will answer that question, following a new group of characters as they face the beginning of the end of the world. The series picks up sometime near the dawn of the apocalyptic zombie outbreak; it features a completely original storyline with no ties to the original comic book or television series, but still takes place in the same universe as The Walking Dead. The show is set in Los Angeles and revolves around divorced teacher Sean Cabrera (Cliff Curtis), guidance councilor Nancy Tompkins (Kim Dickens), and Nancy’s two children; her son Nick (Frank Dillane), who prior to the outbreak struggles with a severe drug problem, and her ambitious daughter Ashley (Alycia Debnam-Carey), who is anxious to attend UC Berkeley and leave her life in L.A. behind her.
Fear the Walking Dead season 1, episode 2 airs Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. EDT on AMC.
