AMC unveils new posters for ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Fear the Walking Dead’

AMC’s The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead have just debuted brand new posters ahead of their season premieres and both are bound to get you pumped for what’s in store for your favorite characters!

The network revealed both posters via a press release detailing the series’ presence at this year’s annual 2018 San Diego Comic-Con.

First up, we’ve got a fantastic poster featuring the cast of Fear The Walking Dead in the literal eye of the storm. The tagline for this coming season, which reads “no calm after the storm,” hints at the fact that whatever these characters end up facing in season 5 won’t be easily overcome.

Notably absent from this season’s poster is of course Madison, whose death last season came as a huge shock to fans— especially given that she’s been the leader figure since the show’s first season. We’ll be interested to see who picks up the mantle now that she’s no longer in the picture.

AMC also revealed a new poster for season 9 of The Walking Dead. The new poster features our core team of Rick, Daryl, Michonne, Maggie and Carol set against the backdrop of a decaying Capitol Building in the distance.

As we mentioned above, both series are set to make their grand return to San Diego Comic-Con later on this month.

AMC has lined up some pretty cool activities for fans lucky enough to be in attendance at Comic-Con 2018.

For starters, if you’re looking to catch a glimpse of the cast, panels for Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead will be held on Friday, July 20 in Hall H from 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. and 12:15 p.m.- 1:15 p.m., respectively.

If you’re not lucky enough to score a seat to the panels, you’ll still be able to immerse yourself in the worlds of both shows.

For starters, this year’s booth is set to feature a game activation of The Walking Dead: Our World. The location-based augmented reality mobile game hails from MAC and Next Games and will place fans in a unique TWD setting where they’ll be able to fight walkers alongside Rick, Daryl, Michonne and other characters from the series.

For a chance to check out the game for yourself, head over to booth #4237 at the convention center.

Outside the main hall, AMC will be bringing back their infamous “Dead Quarters,” which serves as the official fan zone for viewers of both series. The immersive experience, located on Martin Luther King Promenade in front of the Hilton Gaslamp Hotel, will feature a curated walk through of settings from both shows, including The Sanctuary, and a 22-foot Zombie slide.

Fear the Walking Dead returns August 12, and The Walking Dead returns this October.
