In August, we learned that Fear The Walking Dead would premiere a new miniseries set in the earliest days of The Walking Dead’s zombie apocalypse... on a plane. The first episode aired during last night’s season finale of the show, and now you can see it for yourself right here.
...all minute and a half of it. Yes, the first part of Fear The Walking Dead: Flight 462 is short, and not a lot happens—there’s portents of doom about grounded flights (because zombies), a young teenager rings his mom just as he hears screams and shouts in the background (because zombies), and an Asian woman angrily pulls down a blind on a window (presumably, because zombies?).
But it’s just the first part of a grand total of 16 mini-episodes, which will chart the passengers discovery of an infected, soon-to-be-undead person among them. Chaos will ensue, but we know at least one person aboard the titular Flight 462 will live to tell the tale, as they’ll be joining the cast of Fear the Walking Dead’s second season. Which one of these memorable characters will it be—nondescript teenager? Paranoid older man? Weirdly rude Asian woman? The flight attendant? Place your bets now!
Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462 will continue next weekend, with episode 2 airing during the sixth season premiere of The Walking Dead, as well on AMC’s mobile app, before appearing online.
