AMC has released an exclusive interview with the drama’s Executive Producer and Showrunner, Dave Erickson. Discussing the dramatic development of the series and some of the new season’s ocean-set scenes, Erickson’s insights into the Mexico-based production are revealed alongside the drama’s brand new Key Art.
Executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert, “Fear the Walking Dead” stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris and Colman Domingo as Strand. The series from AMC Studios is currently in production on season two in Mexico at Baja Studios, home to some of the greatest ocean-set films in recent years. “Fear the Walking Dead” will air its second season of 15 episodes in two parts, beginning with the first seven episodes starting in April with the remaining eight episodes airing later in 2016.
Season one, which achieved record-breaking performance worldwide including the highest-rated first season of any series in U.S. cable history, ended with Madison, Travis and their extended family taking temporary shelter in Strand’s gated estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean. As civil unrest continues to grow and the dead take over Los Angeles, Strand prepares to escape to “Abigail,” his large yacht moored offshore.
Viewers can catch up with a marathon of season one starting at 8:25 p.m. on 10th April leading into the season two premiere episode at 2:10 a.m. on 11th April.
