COMIC-CON@HOME: The Walking Dead, World Beyond, Fear, all the panels, news, trailers and clips

July 26th, 2020 by Marc Comments

So we now have The Walking Dead panels over from Comic-Con@Home and we learned a  few new details.

It seems that The Walking Dead will return in full force on October 4th with the airing – finally – of the finale of Season 10 which will also act as a backdoor pilot for new spin-off series The Walking Dead: World Beyond, for which the trailer is below.

Just one week later, on October 11th, the sixth season of Fear the Walking Dead kicks off . On the topic of World Beyond, it seems that the first season has already been filmed and is currently in post-production, with early work beginning on Season 2 – the whole series is planned as two ten-episode seasons. No more, no less.

The new season of Fear the Walking Dead will be an anthology, with multiple characters and time-jumps being focused on.

Weirdly, despite season 10 wrapping on October 4th, there will be six ‘bonus’ episodes. I’m not exactly sure what this means, but the finale is still the finale and the eleventh year will not be shortened due to the episodes… they’re just extras. They will not air until 2021, before the arrival of season 11.

We also had it confirmed that the Rick Grimes movies are still happening with creator Robert Kirkman working on them and is in constant contact with Rick himself, star Andrew Lincoln who is ‘excited’ to be back as Rick. The movies have, like everything else, been delayed due to than damned virus.

Also, quite excitingly, therre has been talk of a series of spin-off prequels which may chronicle familiar characters and what they were doing when the dead started rising. Actually, this could be a very cool idea and a great way to bring back some fan favourites.

Below you can check out all the clips, panels and trailers from Comic-Con@Home.

Fear the Walking Dead will present a panel for the series’ upcoming sixth season, premiering later this year. Moderated by Chris Hardwick, the panel will feature TWDU chief content officer Scott M. Gimple, showrunners and executive producers Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, and cast members Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Karen David, Jenna Elfman, and Rubén Blades.

Season six of Fear the Walking Dead explores what has become of the unlikely family once united by a mission to help those in need. After being torn apart by Virginia (Colby Minifie) and her Pioneers, the group is now dispersed across her far-reaching settlements. Morgan’s (James) last message at the end of season five implored the group to “Just Live” and this season we’ll see what that means to each of them. Some will find the stability and opportunity within Virginia’s communities to be intriguing, some will sink into darkness, while others will fight back against what has been forced upon them. Life behind Virginia’s walls will test each and every one of them in different ways, forcing them to define who they are in this new world.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
