“There’s so much story by way of the zombie world that has to come.” —showrunner Dave Erickson

“As far as the timeline goes, we’re pushing the things back. We’re going to be dealing with the initial start of the outbreak.” exec-producer Robert Kirkman

Fear the Walking Dead is an entirely new original concept.” —exec-producer Gale Anne Hurd
