AMC has released the first three minutes of its upcoming spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead. In it, Nick Clark (Frank Dillane) wakes to find all of his friends dead and his girlfriend, Gloria, munching away on one of them. Set during the early days of the zombie plague memorably documented in The Walking Dead, Fear‘s zombies are more human-like and less decayed appearing – Gloria’s cloudy eyes are really the only thing that differentiates her from a living human. Well, that and the blood dripping from her mouth.
This scene will undoubtedly prove misleading to some of the loftier, gorier expectations set for the series. Early publicity has revealed that the series will take a slower pace as it builds to a widespread breakout of the zombie virus.
Fear the Walking Dead premieres Sunday night on AMC.
