The first season of the 'Walking Dead' prequel is getting a Special Edition release in March.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay will be releasing 'Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete First Season (Special Edition)' on Blu-ray on March 22.
Living in the same universe as The Waling Dead, Fear the Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in Los Angeles, a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and English teacher Travis Manawa (Cliff Curtis) have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and the dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Pilot Episode: The Widescreen Version; Five Deleted Scenes; Inside "Fear the Walking Dead"; FEAR: The Beginning; Five Things You Need To Survive; Locations: LA & Vancouver; Quarantined; Stunts And Anarchy; and The Faces Of Fear The Infected .
Note that a Special Edition release will be available sometime in 2016.
