AMC has confirmed that it will be moving the majority of filming for Fear The Walking Dead season 2 to Mexico. The first season of the Walking Dead companion series was set in Los Angeles, however was primary filmed in Vancouver.
Fear The Walking Dead will film at Baja Studios in Mexico, which is also where Titanic, Master and Commander, Peal Harbor, and other water-heavy films have been shot.
“We are thrilled to be starting production and even more thrilled to be shooting in Mexico. Baja Studios has been home to some of the greatest ocean-set films in recent years and provides all the creative resources we need to begin this new chapter in the ‘Fear’ saga. We couldn’t be happier,” said Fear executive producer Dave Erickson.
Fear left off with Travis (Cliff Curtis) and his extended family taking shelter at Strand’s (Colman Domingo)’s estate on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Strand notes that he is preparing to escape to his yacht which viewers saw floating in the ocean. Due to that scene, fans have speculated that we might see some of the second season set at sea. That hasn’t been confirmed yet, and if additional news surfaces on it – we’ll post it here.
Fear The Walking Dead is set to return in Spring 2016 with 15 episodes.
