Anchor Bay Entertainment is bringing fans of the latest ingenious and pulse-pounding AMC original series, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON to Blu-ray and DVD on December 1st. Created by Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead”) and Dave Erickson (“Sons of Anarchy”), the series hailed as “effortlessly creepy” (People), premiered in August as the #1 show in cable history. The 2-disc sets include character bios as well as “A Look at the Series.” Both fans of the show, as well as those who have yet to encounter the engrossing drama, will have the opportunity to own all six episodes. SRP is $49.99 for the Blu-ray, $39.98 for the DVD, with pre-book on October 28th.
Living in the same universe as “The Walking Dead”, “Fear the Walking Dead” is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in Los Angeles, a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens, Gone Girl) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis, Missing) have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and the dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
Fans can also look forward to FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON Special Edition in 2016. Release date will be announced shortly.
FEAR THE WALKING DEAD: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON cast also includes Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince), Mercedes Mason (Quarantine 2), Ruben Blades (Safe House), Alycia Debnam-Carey (The Devils Hand), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Orange Is the New Black) and Lorenzo James Henrie (Star Trek).
“Fear The Walking Dead” Season 2 premieres on AMC with 15 new episodes in 2016.
