Watch the first promo for AMC's Fear the Walking Dead. 

That's one good reason to always get a flu shot! AMC aired the first promo for its Walking Dead companion series, Fear the Walking Dead, during the Sunday, March 29 season 5 finale of The Walking Dead, and while we've only seen 15 seconds, the series looks like must-see TV.

Documenting the early days of the zombie apocalypse, Fear the Walking Dead centers in and around Los Angeles, with Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, and Alycia Debnam set to star. As the preview trailer indicates, California is one of five states first reporting a strange virus. (As TWD fans know, the original, still-running series takes place in the South, with the action now going down in Alexandria, Va.) In the clip, a newscaster warns those in his listening area to make sure to get their flu shots.
