It seems that AMC is all set to explore the possibilities of a zombie attack on the survivors while they are travelling through the sea in the upcoming season of "Fear the Walking Dead".
In the season finale of first season, titled "The Good Man", the survivors escaped the zombies by heading to sea in Strand's yacht. Hence, their next adventure is undoubtedly going to be in the waters.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, show creator Dave Erickson talked about what happens to the remaining refugees. He said getting into the yacht would be no less than a challenge for the survivors.
He also said some other people would follow the yacht in their boats to escape the zombies. When asked where the group was headed to, Erickson said: "The intention was always to hug the Pacific."
"You're going to see a bunch of sea-bound refugees over the course of Season 2. And much in the same way we have taken steps to survive and compromised our morals to do so, we're going to have to deal with some people who have very similar objectives, and the default setting for most of these people is not going to be let's all live in harmony and try to build a new community," he said.
Show co-creator Rob Kirkman said Season 2 would be just like the earlier seasons of "The Walking Dead". However, the major difference between the two would be that most of "Fear the Walking Dead" Season 2 would be set in waters and how the group survives zombie hordes through the yacht.
"Despite the fact that zombies can't walk on water and can't swim, there will be plenty of zombies to be had," he said.
The website Fear-Walking-Dead has mentioned that "Fear the Walking Dead" Season 2 is expected to premiere in August 2016. However, there has been no official confirmation yet.
