Press Release: NEW YORK, NY - December 3, 2015 - AMC announced today the start of production on "Fear the Walking Dead" season two in the Baja peninsula in Mexico at Baja Studios, site of the filming for Titanic, Master and Commander and other feature films. The companion series to "The Walking Dead," the #1 show on television among adults 18-49, "Fear the Walking Dead" delivered the highest-rated first season of any series in cable history among total viewers and all key demos in live+3 ratings. Executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert, "Fear the Walking Dead" returns for a second season of 15 episodes next spring.
"We are thrilled to be starting production and even more thrilled to be shooting in Mexico. Baja Studios has been home to some of the greatest ocean-set films in recent years and provides all the creative resources we need to begin this new chapter in the ‘Fear’ saga. We couldn’t be happier," said Erickson.
Season one left off with Madison (Kim Dickens), Travis (Cliff Curtis) and their extended family taking temporary shelter in Strand’s (Colman Domingo) 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.
"Fear the Walking Dead" takes us back to the beginning of the zombie apocalypse - a time when the world was changing rapidly for reasons unknown, before anyone understood exactly what was happening, when life as everyone knew it was upended and altered in ways no one could have ever imagined. "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.
