For the last few years, Fear The Walking Dead has had a panel at Wonder Con with the cast and crew taking the stage to talk about the season. This year, there will be a change as AMC will not bring Fear The Walking Dead to WonderCon this year. Taking Fear’s place at WonderCon will be the second spinoff series, The Walking Dead: World Beyond.
World Beyond is a limited series that takes place ten years into the apocalypse in Nebraska. The series will feature two young female protagonists and focus on the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse along with more members of the communituy that they are all in. The walkers in this series is referred to as “empties” and there is a reason that they are referred to that as we will all find that out on the first episode.
One of the main drawing points of the series is that the CRM Helicopter group that has taken Rick Grimes, and Heath, and traded more people for supplies will be heavily featured on this mini series. CRM has connected the main show and Fear in the past and it seems like World Beyond will be the series to not only be the third connection to bring every series in the franchise together, but to also lead in to the Untitled Walking Dead Rick Grimes’ movies as well. I believe some those questions will be addressed at WonderCon. As far as Fear The Walking Dead goes, I believe the next time everyone will see the cast and the debut trailer will be sometime before San Diego Comic Con season!
No details have been revealed yet on which cast members will be in attendance at the panel along with which day the panel will take place, but AMC and WonderCon will release that information weeks before WonderCon begins.
