Fear the Walking Dead, AMC’s companion series to its hit show The Walking Dead, boldly refuses to show any Walkers in their promotional material released to date. We got to watch Frank Dillane run away from some unseen menace as Nick in a recent trailer, and all the images released so far have focused on the central family members. It makes sense since AMC is trying to introduce viewers to all new characters before bringing in the blight. Additionally, the network has revealed the first official synopsis for the spin-off which positions its story in a time of ignorance before the chaos hits.
Check out the new trailer for AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, followed by the series’ official synopsis:

The series, set in Los Angeles, stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Elizabeth Rodriguez as Liza, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia and Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris.
