Ramblings about entertainment, lifestyle and travel
AMC Global and BT have just announced the premiere of season two of “Fear the Walking Dead”, the companion series to the global hit “The Walking Dead”, will take place on Monday 11th April at 2:00 am – simultaneous to the AMC US premiere – with a repeat later that evening in primetime exclusively to BT customers. “Talking Dead”, the lively review show hosted by Chris Hardwick, will be seen in conjunction with each episode of “Fear the Walking Dead” and will air exclusively for the first time in all AMC Global markets throughout season two (times to be announced). AMC Global has also released first-look photos from the set of “Fear 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 11th April. The remaining eight episodes will air later in 2016. When it debuted last year, the drama delivered the highest-rated first season of any series in US cable history among total viewers and all key demos in live + 3 ratings and was once of my favourite shows of the year.
Season two of “Fear the Walking Dead” and “Talking Dead” will be available free of charge exclusively to all BT TV customers on AMC channel 332 on BT TV and BT Sport Pack subscribers on Sky channel 192. AMC is also available in HD on both BT TV and Sky with an HD subscription.
Executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert, “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. 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 ended 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.
New to AMC Global, “Talking Dead” is hosted by Chris Hardwick, who welcomes cast members, producers and celebrity guests to talk about the latest episode of “Fear” and presents behind-the-scenes features and interviews.
AMC also released a teaser clip for the highly anticipated second season of “Fear the Walking Dead” premiering on 11 April 2016 on AMC exclusive to BT
