Fans have been waiting for months, and now the news it out. The highly anticipated new AMC series Fear the Walking Dead will premiere Aug. 23.
“FEAR premieres August 23rd 9pm!” reads a note posted this afternoon (July 10) on the Walking Dead’s official Twitter account. The news came during a panel being held at Comic Con in San Diego, attended by cast and crew from the new show, a spinoff of AMC’s hugely popular zombie-infested series The Walking Dead.
A new trailer for Fear the Walking Dead also debuted at Comic-Con. Watch it above.
Fear the Walking Dead was announced earlier this year. While The Walking Dead itself is set on the East Coast, Fear the Walking Dead is set in Los Angeles, during a time frame just before the outbreak begins.
A few more details about the setting and plotline of the new series were also unveiled during the Comic Con panel, which many fans and journalists were live tweeting.
