In just a few short days, AMC's The Walking Dead will return to close out the back half of Season 6, but this spring, fans will also get to see the L.A. survivors' story unfold when Fear the Walking Dead returns for Season 2. As we get closer to the Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 premiere on April 10, Entertainment Weekly has debuted a new trailer which teases there is "no safe harbor" for Travis (Cliff Curtis), Madison (Kim Dickens) and their family. If you haven't caught up with the first season of Fear the Walking Dead, there will be SPOILERS below, so read on at your own risk.
The first season of Fear the Walking Dead ended with Travis, Madison, Alicia (Alycia Debnam Carey), Nick (Frank Dillane) and Daniel (Rubén Blades) getting ready to escape Los Angeles on Strand's (Colman Domingo) massive yacht. This new trailer shows a brief shot featuring a life raft full of new survivors, along with new footage that shows escalating tensions on the boat. Here's what executive producer Dave Erickson had to say about what these survivors will face in the new season.
"You're going to see a bunch of seabound refugees over the course of Season 2. And much in the same way that we have taken steps to survive and compromised our morals to do so, we're going to have to deal with some people who have very similar objectives, and the default setting for most of these people is not going to be, let's all live in harmony and try to build a new community. It's going to be, how do we protect what's ours? How do we protect our family? So there's going to be a very serious threat from other people, as there is constantly on The Walking Dead."
Fear the Walking Dead will air its second season of 15 episodes in two parts, beginning with the first of seven episodes on Sunday, April 10th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The remaining eight episodes will air later in 2016. The series, which delivered the highest-rated first season of any series in cable history among total viewers and all key demos in live+3 ratings, is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Cliff Curtis as Nick, Alycia Debnam Carey as Alicia, Rubén Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Masöhn as Ofelia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris and Colman Domingo as Strand.
The series began production on season two last month in the Baja peninsula in Mexico at Baja Studios, home to some of the greatest ocean-set films in recent years. Season one left off 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. For those who haven't caught up with the series yet, the complete first season of Fear the Walking Dead will be available to stream exclusively on Hulu. Hulu subscribers can catch up on all episodes of the series through Hulu's No Commercials and Limited Commercials plans ahead of the second season premiere on AMC. Immediately following Fear the Walking Dead on Sundays at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT will be Talking Dead, hosted by Chris Hardwick, which will continue its tradition of welcoming cast, producers and celebrity guests to the couch to talk about the newest episode of Fear.
