Fear the Walking Dead Web Series Announced

With the spin-off series “Fear the Walking Dead” set to wrap this Sunday, AMC has announced a companion web series which will debut on the network’s official site.

“Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462” is a sixteen-part series with the first episode debuting on the official site on October 4th and in an ad break during the premiere of the sixth season of “The Walking Dead” on October 11th.

Subsequent episodes, each running less than one minute long, will debut every Sunday online and then on-air during new episodes of “The Walking Dead” for the duration of the sixth season.

The story follows a group of passengers aboard a commercial airplane during the earliest moments of the outbreak. One of the characters featured in the web series will also join the cast of “Fear the Walking Dead” for its second season.
