AMC has ordered a half-hour special set within “The Walking Dead” onscreen universe that would see the show and its companion series “Fear the Walking Dead” crossing over.
The special is a stand-alone piece set to feature an outbreak on an airline during the early origins of the disease. A survivor of the attack will then join the cast of ‘Fear’ in the show’s fifteen episode second season.
This special will be released online in chapters that will air later during “The Walking Dead”. It’s unclear how many installments there will be or during which episodes of the main show they will begin airing.
“Fear the Walking Dead” continues on Sundays ahead of the sixth season of “The Walking Dead” which returns October 11th.
