You've heard of snakes on a plane—thank you, Samuel L. Jackson—and now thanks to AMC there will be zombies on a plane. E! News has confirmed AMC is planning a special based in the world of The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead that will see a zombie outbreak on a plane.Flying has never been more fun!
The new web special is set during Fear The Walking Dead, which is set before the events of The Walking Dead, but all are in the same universe. In the stand-alone story, the airplane passengers face a walker/zombie/whatever you want to call it while midair. A character survives the encounter and will join the cast of Fear The Walking Dead season two.
This is the first time AMC is using a web series to introduce a new character to the TV universe. The special will debut online and then air during The Walking Dead telecasts. Entertainment Weekly reports Dave Erickson and David Weiner are producers on the new content.
