Fear the Walking Dead season two begins production
AMC has announced the start of production on Fear the Walking Dead season two, the companion series to The Walking Dead which went on to become the highest-rated first season of any series in cable history. The series is currently filming at Baja Studios in Mexico, the same location previously used for the likes of Titanic, Master and Commander and other features. Fear the Walking Dead will return for its 15-episode second season in the spring of 2016.
“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 executive producer Dave 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. The series also stars Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia,and Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris.
