AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead Season 2 has officially released the first promo photo still with a picture of two cast members on the boat in the open sea. The second season of Fear the Walking Dead will premiere this upcoming April 2016 on AMC. After the expanded order, we are now getting a 15 episode order set to air in a split season just like The Walking Dead currently runs.
Press Release Excerpt: AMC announced today from the Television Critics Association (TCA) Press Tour the network’s 2016 spring premiere dates for new and returning original series. For the first time ever, AMC will launch a fourth night of original programming on Tuesdays beginning this April with the debut of the highly anticipated miniseries event "The Night Manager." Last year, AMC became home to the top four cable series launches of all time among adults 18-49 in live+3 ratings, with "Fear the Walking Dead" at #1, "Better Call Saul" at #2, "Into the Badlands" at #3 and "The Walking Dead" at #4.
AMC also released today three first-look photos, one each from the sets of "Fear the Walking Dead," "The Night Manager" and "TURN: Washington’s Spies." The network will premiere these three series this spring as follows:
"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, 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.
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.
Beginning Tuesday, January 26th, 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. The series comes to Hulu in an exclusive, multi-year licensing agreement with AMC Networks Inc.
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."
