How Fear The Walking Dead’s Timeline Connects to The Walking Dead’s .
Many are not pleased with Fear the Walking Dead’s slow start or the many others reasons viewers don’t see the show as good as The Walking Dead’s. However this may be due to the current timeline that Fear The Walking Dead is on as it was just revealed how the current shows relate to each other during their timeline of the zombie apocalypse.
While it is quite obvious the shows relate and are in the same cinematic universe, viewers continue to wonder if the shows will ever cross over.
In a recent revelation from Fear The Walking Dead’s show runner Via Comicbook, Dave Erickson stated, exactly where the shows are timeline wise as far as relating to each other, as he states:
“If you marked off the days [that have passed on air since Fear the Walking Dead debuted], I think right now, by the end of the first half [of Season 2], we’re getting very close to Rick waking up in Georgia,” Erickson tells TVLine. “[Fear The Walking Dead survivors have] arrived at a place where they’re up to speed on how one deals with the apocalypse and the dead.”
He follows up with a response to why many fans seem to be frustrated with Fear The Walking Dead’s slow start as he states,
By the end of the first [zombie movie] reel, everybody knows the score and is able to kill [the undead] without any thought. They become very practiced at it very quickly. And that was something we wanted to avoid. We wanted to [instead] try to balance expectations of how people should behave once they know there are zombies with this sort of attempted slow burn into the apocalypse from a character standpoint.
That creates frustrations, to a certain degree, because in some instances, you want [the characters] to get it already. And in some circumstances, the things that they do that don’t seem particularly zombie-savvy are, for me, moments where they aren’t zombie-savvy.
As it appears ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ is a prequel to even Rick Grimes first day against the “walkers”, so perhaps this is why fans can’t help but to compare The Walking Dead’s advanced season 6, to the slow start that Fear The Walking Dead’s season 2 has just ended with.
How do you feel about Fear The Walking Dead? Would it be worth it to have The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead cross over?
