If you still have some catching up to do The Walking Dead: Beyond the World, some information from the 2021 San Diego Comic-Con panel with the cast and crew of the spin-off could be a good incentive. Now touted as a two-part limited series, the second season / half of which premieres on October 3rd, it stands alone as a YA adventure series in the world of the Walking Dead, but will connect this growing connected universe more definitely than ever.

There may have been a period of time between the time jumps in which fear took place around the same time as The Walking Dead, but that is no longer the case.
The next time is Beyond the world what takes place in the middle. (You know, like grout.) Gimple said it was after the new season of. takes place Fear walking death
Speaking of former fearless leaders, one thing Beyond the world will Not Feature or provide answers to Rick Grimes’ current location even though it was taken over by CRM. Maybe the timeline has something to do with it. But Gimple has clearly stated that those answers don’t come in this particular spin-off, and in a world where there are so many banter in the form of clichés like “never say never” and “anything is possible” it’s refreshing to To get a straight answer, even if it’s a negative one.
