"Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462" is a series of webisodes which is being released online, depicting passengers of an LAX bound flight being confronted by an infected attack. One of the surviving characters from this incident will then join the cast of Fear the Walking Dead for the second season.
The first episode was also aired during two of the commercial breaks of the Season 1 finale of Fear; and then again during the first episode of Season 6 TWD. There are 16, very short, episodes in total. They will be aired, one per each TWD episode, during the commercial breaks of season 6 TWD.
"Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462" tells the story of a group of passengers aboard a commercial airplane during the earliest moments of the outbreak. Over the course of the series, the plane and the lives of its passengers are put in jeopardy once they discover an infected traveler."
Each installment will be a little less than a minute in length, and be released each Sunday for the duration of Season 6 TWD. 462 is pretty much a family affair; it is written by two of the Fear production team, Lauren Signorino and Mike Zunic and directed by the Fear director of photography Michael McDonough. It’s produced by Dave Erickson and David Wiener, showrunner and coexecproducer of Fear. The two names you're not likely to know there, Signorino and Zunic, both work on Fear already as Script Coordinator and Assistant to the Producers.
|“||Flight 462 is a great extension of the world of Fear and will engage fans across multiple platforms with another riveting story set at the start of the fall of civilization. We are thrilled to be collaborating with Dave Erickson and David Wiener on another piece of original content. Watching how they’ll bring one of these new characters to the second season of Fear will be really exciting for viewers to follow.||”|
