For WonderCon weekend, AMC made a couple of announcements starting with the news that their flagship series spin-off “Fear the Walking Dead” will return for a fifth season on June 2nd. In addition, the network’s new Zachary Quinto-led vampire series “NOS4A2” will premiere on the same day back-to-back with ‘Fear’.
Based on Joe Hill’s 2013 novel, “NOS4A2” sees Quinto as Charlie Manx, a seductive immortal who feeds off the souls of children he traps in a dark Xmas-themed world of his imagining. Ashleigh Cummings plays a young, working-class artist in New England who has the ability to track him.
The new series used its WonderCon presence to launch a new trailer which shows off some of the premiere episode which nabbed good notices out of SXSW earlier this month. If you have AMC Premiere, you’ll be able to binge the entire ten-episode first season starting on June 2nd.
