Well, it’s official, The Walking Dead spin-off is called… Fear The Walking Dead. Em, ok.

SpoilerTV are saying they have confirmation that that’s what the new series will be called. Wow, a whole other word, huh? Check out the image above which is rumoured to be the real deal – the first page of the script for the pilot episode.

The synopsis reads: The spinoff takes place during the same zombie apocalypse depicted on The Walking Dead but in a different location. It revolves around Sean Cabrera (Curtis), a divorced teacher and Nancy Tompkins (Dickens), a female guidance councilor. Dillane plays the Nancy’s son Nick, who has battled a drug problem. Debnam Carey, plays the Nancy’s ambitious daughter Ashley.

The creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, has said in the past that if he could he would redo the end of Season One, where the team made it to the CDC (Centre for Disease Control) where they met Noah Emmerich’s character Edwin Jenner – the man who revealed to Rick that everyone is infected. And now it looks like he may get his chance.

THR asked Emmerich recently if he would be interested in returning for the prequel series given that the two shows will reportedly be linked: “Sure, I think he’s a fascinating character.

“There’s definitely a lot more to find out about Dr Jenner. I have no idea, I haven’t talked with them about anything. I don’t know [if he could come back]. I have no idea, but it’s an interesting question.”

He goes on: “There’s a lot more there for that character, he was a fascinating character and we only got a little taste of him. It would be really interesting to see what more was there. It’s really intriguing.”

what do you guys think? Is he playing coy or has he genuinely not been approached? He’s been rumoured to be part of the series for a while – it would make sense – but we’ll have to wait and see if they go that way.

Finally, The Walking Dead returns on February 8th and AMC have released a new teaser for it called Another Day’

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. 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….
