Comic-Con 2017 Hall H: Fear The Walking Dead

Fear The Walking Dead

I have to admit. Sadly I almost gave up on Fear the Walking Dead after the lackluster second season last year. I was not a fan of it at all. However, my fiancée encouraged and persuaded me to watch the Season Three premiere a few months back. Holy hell! I was instantly hooked as it started off with a bang taking no prisoners. Don’t even get me started on that last sequence for the mid season finale either. It was near perfect the way the ending montage played out against the haunting cover of “Stand by Me,” but I digress. So here we are! It’s Friday! We’re in Hall H at Comic-Con 2017! Does life get any better than this? I don’t know if it does. LOL. Let’s talk some Fear The Walking Dead Comic-Con style now.

Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Mercedes Mason, Colman Domingo, Dayton Callie, Sam Underwood, Daniel Sharman, and Michael Greyeyes join executive producer and showrunner Dave Erickson, executive producer Robert Kirkman, executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, executive producer Dave Alpert, and special effects makeup supervisor and executive producer Greg Nicotero in this Hall H panel moderated by Chris Hardwick (The Nerdist, Talking Dead). They gathered here to talk about where the series left off in the mind blowing midseason finale, which I made mention of up above and what to look forward to when it picks up in September.

This group was a very lively bunch.  The biggest fun of the panel was all the jokes in regards to how the majority of the cast is all British.  There were plenty of cracks on their accents made too.  They also demonstrated how bad it sounds when an American tries to imitate an English accent.

We of course got treated to a sneak peak look at the Mid Season trailer for the rest of Season 3.  They played it twice.  I can’t wait for it to return!  Furthermore, the surprise of the panel for me was a video featuring the character of Salazar who is so grateful to be a part of all this and very appreciative to the fans of the show.  In real life the dude is an accomplished, traveling musician.

The biggest reveal of the night probably for the audience stemmed from an audience question.  As a response Kirkman kind of made mention that they hope to have a series based overseas possibly too in the near future.  That’s kind of cool too, huh?   Sorry, but no mention yet of this series and the original Walking Dead ever crossing.

So anyway here’s some shots captured of all things that went down during today’s Hall H Fear The Walking Dead panel.
