Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462: Episode 1 of the AMC web series

Posted on

AMC

The first season of Fear the Walking Dead packed its bags on Sunday night, but the outbreak is just beginning. 

The first installment of the zombie prequel’s companion web series, Flight 462, debuted Sunday on AMC.com. The video may clock in at under 90 seconds, but it’s not short on tension: A routine flight takeoff is interrupted by an anxious passenger, a woman who knows more than she’s saying, and a distant scream on the other end of the phone. Keep a close eye on this cast — someone on the flight will go on to join Fear the Walking Dead‘s second season.

Flight 462 tells the story of the outbreak from the skies, as a passenger on the flight is discovered to be infected. New episodes, each just about a minute long, will air during commercial breaks throughout the new season of The Walking Deadwhich premieres Oct. 11. The episodes will also be available online.

Flight 462 is produced by Fear’s Dave Erickson and David Wiener, written by Fear’s L. Signorino and Mike Zunic, and directed by the show’s director of photography, Michael McDonough. Fasten your seatbelts.
