The first episode of Tales of the Walking Dead is a great one that introduces some fantastic new characters. Set about one year after the outbreak, the episode features Joe (Crews), a prepper who has been holed up in his bunker and, after a tragedy, decides to head out in search of someone. He crosses paths with a woman named Evie (Munn). The pair couldn’t be more different but take off on a road trip to locate missing loved ones. This adventure leads to soul searching on the parts of both characters.
The second episode will release on AMC+ on August 14 and AMC on August 21.
