AMC’s flagship series, The Walking Dead, its sibling series Fear the Walking Dead, Preacher will return to Comic-con International 2018 – and the critically acclaimed offshoot of Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, will make its Comic-Con debut.
Each series will be the subject of a panel, with a special 10th Anniversary panel for Breaking Bad.
Other events include a red carpet premiere for season four of Better Call Saul; Dead Quarters, the official fan zone of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead; and a booth activation for The Walking Dead: Our World.
Comic Con International 2018 will take place July 19th–22nd at the San Diego Convention Center, in San Diego, CA.
AMC is launching two new initiatives for fans of The Walking Dead and Feat the Walking Dead: The Walking Dead Fan Rewards Club and The Walking Dead Subscription Box (working title).
Fans can earn points for things they’re probably already doing (watching the show; posting comments and discussions online, etc.) through the rewards club, while the subscription box will be a quarterly box of exclusive TWD/FtWD-related, limited edition merchandise from the shows.
Both initiatives will go into effect in September – in time for The Walking Dead’s milestone 100th episode and the premiere of the second half of Fear the Walking Dead’s third season.
AMC today released special Comic Con art for “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead.” “The Walking Dead” key art also reveals October 22nd as the season 8 premiere, which coincides with the series’ 100th episode.
AMC will also be present at MLK Park with a fan activation for fans of both shows.
AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead will return for its third season on Sunday, June 4th (9/8C) as announced during last night’s “Talking Dead.” The first half of the season will consist of eight episodes airing over six weeks, with two back-to- back episodes on Sunday, June 4th and a mid-season finale of two back-to-back episodes on Sunday, June 9th.
