Horror drama series “The Walking Dead” will have a special stand-alone episode featuring zombie attack on a plane.
The half-hour special, set during the time period of the drama’s companion series, “Fear the Walking Dead”, chronicles a group of passengers facing a walker attack while in flight, reported Entertainment Weekly.
One character who survives that encounter will then join the cast of “Fear the Walking Dead” on season two.
The airline attack story will debut online, and will unfold in chapters that will air during “Walking Dead”s on-air telecasts.
The special episode will be produced by Dave Erickson and “Fear” co-executive producer David Weiner.
Earlier, AMC has had stand-alone “The Walking Dead” online web series, but the network never used such content to introduce a new character before they joined the show.
“The Walking Dead” will return on October 11.
