AMC has just released a massive bunch of new character portraits and episodic still for Fear The Walking Dead season two, and they certainly ram home that there’s going to be an sea-faring flavour to the series for the next set of episodes. What we really want to see now are some walkers in water wings.
“I think we’ll quickly realise that the ocean is no safer than land and that there’s a very different level of adversity and threat on the water,” says exec producer Dave Erickson in this interview. “It forces the characters to set their sights on a destination. But where will that be? North to Vancouver or south to Cabo? This is a boat that has a really incredible range and a full tank of gas so, feasibly, they could head out across the Pacific for 3,000 miles or more and make it to Hawaii. We could even end up doing zombies in paradise!”
Fear The Walking Dead season two premieres on 11 April on AMC exclusive to BT.
