Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462 starts during the Season 1 finale of Fear and follows a group of airplane passengers right at the start of the outbreak. It will be 16, very short, episodes long and deals with the threat posed by an infected passenger on an airliner, one of the characters in 462 will join the second season cast of Fear.
Each installment will be a little less than a minute in length, releasing each Sunday for the duration of Season 6 TWD. The debut episode will then air as a promo during The Walking Dead’s season 6 premiere on Oct. 11. 462 is pretty much a family affair and is written by 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.
One of the characters featured in 462 will join the cast of “Fear the Walking Dead” season 2. (I don't see any familiar faces in the promo pic above... Anybody heard anything?)
|“||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.||”|
