We’re almost to the premiere of Fear The Walking Dead, a spinoff of the mega popular TV show and comic of similar name. That being said, the first season will only have 6 episodes, which has led many to wonder how much we’ll actually get in that first season.

Speaking at the TCA’s, David Erickson, producer of Fear The Walking Dead, gave a brief outline for what many can expect in season one of the show:

“By the end of season 1, we definitely know the world has changed, but we’re not at the same place where Rick woke up,” Erickson said. “There’s still a window of time, we’ll have some real estate left. Rick’s coma was about 4 to 5 weeks. If you track our story, we probably go three weeks over the course of our first season. There is a time that may come that we catch up, and there may be a season where we do a major time cut. The thinking right now in season 1 and the writers’ room for season 2 isn’t about how do we intersect them how or catch up with the original show?”

Interesting, what do you think of this?
