Dead in the Water: AMC+ Releases Fear the Walking Dead Spinoff Trailer

With Fear the Walking Dead for Season 7 Part 2 hitting AMC next week, the war between Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) & Morgan's (Lennie James) forces and Victor's (Colman Domingo) Tower fortress looks to be bloody & violent, forcing a number of familiar faces to choose sides. Meanwhile, Kim Dickens' Madison Clark returns but not exactly in the way we're sure she envisioned- a prisoner of some very shady & ominous third party that we may or may not have seen before. But how did we get to this post-nuclear fallout hellscape? That's the question that the six-part "Fear TWD" prequel limited series Dead in the Water looks to help answer, and now we have a look at what viewers can expect via an official trailer (with the streaming series hitting AMC+ on April 10).

Set aboard the infamous USS Pennsylvania, the six-part prequel spinoff takes viewers back to before the sixth season as the walker apocalypse was in its infancy. Nick Stahl returns to reprise his role as Riley, the submarine weapons officer who was Teddy's (John Glover) right-hand man and the one responsible for firing the warheads that dumped our heroes and big bands into the middle of two apocalypses. that turned Texas into ground zero of the nuclear-zombie apocalypse. To see how it all came to be, check out the following trailer for Dead in the Water: A Fear the Walking Dead Story:

"Dead in the Water: A 'Fear the Walking Dead' Story" rewinds to the eve of the apocalypse, where a conflicted officer and new father (Nick Stahl) fights for survival just as the apocalypse hits. Shipmates turn one-by-one with no explanation, and the USS Pennsylvania becomes a nuclear-fueled and walker-filled death trap with no way out.
