Producers Preview Fear The Walking Dead Season 2



Following the dramatic – you might say zompocalyptic – events of the Fear The Walking Dead season one finale (read our four-star review here), the producers share their thoughts on what season two may have in store in this AMC featurette.

Meanwhile, executive producer Dave Erickson has been sharing a little bit more with The Hollywood Reporter. He says that “We’ll pick up in a more accelerated pace” at the start of season two, a move necessitated by expectations after the action in that season one finale.

“If I were them, I’d be thinking that there has to be some place to go” he teases, clearly hoping we remember that shot of Abigail the luxury yacht. “Maybe it’s an island. I don’t know. But there’s got to be a place where this contagion hasn’t touched. But we the audience know that’s not true and that will be the next blow that they suffer.”

He confirms that season two will open after a brief time jump (“There’s too much emotional weight coming off of the finale and the loss of Liza and Griselda; we didn’t want to jump too far because there’s an obligation to see the aftermath of that”).

He also hints that we’ll learn more about the nature of “Cobalt”, the army’s humane termination programme (“the military still has plans”) and promises that a lot of the action in season two will take place at sea: “If you look at Strand’s yacht, it’s a pretty handsome vessel. It’s something that you can survive on for a good period of time and that’s something others might covet. So when you get to the question of what’s worse, walker or human, we’ll continue that theme. There will be quite a bit of action on the seas – and we’ll split it between land and water. But it’s going to be an interesting dynamic.”

It seems we’ll be learning some dark secrets about Madison too: “The things that she’s experienced are secrets that she’s kept for a long time. A big part of the reason she doesn’t tell Travis about Artie [the principal-turned-zombie she put down in episode two] is because it hits a nerve in her history. I’d like to find a way to explore that shame she feels.”

He’s keeping mum for the moment, though, about who from the webseries Fear The Walking Dead Flight 462 (see here) will make it onto the main show.
