Fear the Walking Dead: Passage

We are less than a week away from the highly-anticipated “The Walking Dead” Season 7 premiere. Ahead of Sunday’s first episode, AMC announced that this season will also feature a new web series titled “Fear the Walking Dead: Passage.”

After last year’s hit “Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462,” the cable network is rolling out a new 16-part series that fans can watch on AMC.com/passage and during the new “Walking Dead” episodes.

The second season of webisodes follows a fearsome survivor, Sierra (Kelsey Scott), who agrees to help an injured woman, Gabi (Mishel Prada), in exchange for an apocalyptic sanctuary. Per the synopsis, “over the course of their harrowing journey, the women go on to face many dangers and learn what they need to survive.” A new one-minute episode will be released every week online and on-air during new episodes throughout the entire seventh season.

“Passage” is produced by “Fear the Walking Dead” showrunner and executive producer Dave Erickson, directed and produced by Andrew Bernstein and written by Lauren Signorino and Mike Zunic, who also serve as consulting producers. AMC’s first “TWD” web series, “Flight 462,” had over 4.6 million video streams and earned two Emmy nominations.
