The first season of Fear the Walking Dead started off a little slow but definitely ended leaving us wanting more and we are definitely going to be getting it. The Hollywood Reporter reports that filming for the second season of the Walking Dead spinoff will take place in Baja, Mexico and on the water thanks to Colman Domingo, who plays Victor Strand, being promoted to series regular. Strand’s yacht Abigail is going to be the site of major drama as people flee land to escape the zombie threat.
Showrunner Dave Erickson gave THR the scoop on what to expect in an interview at the end of season one:
“We end on one boat and the ocean beyond — but what we’ll come to realize and this will be part of what the military is doing — you’ll see that land is no longer safe,” he said. “At least not in Southern California. Some people have not been quarantined or driven north or south. But there’s thousands of boats through L.A. County. So a lot of people will stock up the boats and try to get to the water and avoid land as much as humanly possible. You’ll see a lot of people trying to survive. If you look at Strand’s yacht, it’s a pretty handsome vessel. It’s something that you can survive on for a good period of time and that’s something others might covet. So when you get to the question of what’s worse, walker or human, we’ll continue that theme. There will be quite a bit of action on the seas — and we’ll split it between land and water. But it’s going to be an interesting dynamic.”
Congrats to Domingo! I hope you last longer than some of the other black characters on The Walking Dead! Yes, I said it.
