7 New Set Photos of the Fear the Walking Dead Pilot
Production on Fear the Walking Dead is well underway, and it's only a matter of time before we see the zombie apocalypse that directly preceded the post-apocalyptic landscape of The Walking Dead. In these new set photos, we don't see any walkers, but statements from the great minds behind the scenes shed some light on what we should expect from this spin-off/prequel:

The pictures don't reveal much in the way of plot, but while EW was being the fly on Fear the Walking Dead's wall, Robert Kirkman said, "Greg Nicotero and his team have definitely come up with a very unique take on our early walkers."

Although the walkers have evolved somewhat over the last five seasons of The Walking Dead, most notably becoming more fragile and rotted, they've mostly looked the same throughout, which would make it very interesting if the early walkers diverged significantly from what we've seen so far. It would likely mean that we will get more insight into the nature of the virus itself; although Kirkman has stated that we won't find out exactly what happened, seeing the disease when it's just acting like a sickness will probably give us some clues.

Fear the Walking Dead has a two-season commitment, and will premiere on AMC sometime this summer.
