The Walking Dead fans have finally seen an extended trailer of how it all began.

In addition to a trailer for season six of the hit AMC series, which airs on FOX /RTE Two in the UK and Ireland, fans were treated to the first detailed clip of  spin-off Fear The Walking Dead.

The new series, starring Cliff Curtis and Mercedes Mason, focuses on the beginning of the outbreak in Los Angeles and features entirely new characters.

The three minute clip looks strikingly similar to most zombie "origin" stories, but fans are hopeful of another hit with Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman and Fear showrunner Dave Erickson backing the spin-off.       

Meanwhile, the sixth series of The Walking Dead, which will return to our screens later this year, appears to be one of the bloodiest seasons yet as Rick struggles to maintain confidence in his leadership as he descends further into madness.

Played to the backdrop of Hozier's Arsonist's Lullabye - YouTube, what was once anticipated as the biggest comeback in the series, Morgan's return is entirely focused on re-humanising Rick and making a play for his power.
