IT’S OFFICIAL! The walking dead companion show on AMC is called FEAR THE WALKING DEAD! Expect more news very soon! #FearTheWalkingDead

No, really. That’s the name AMC chose.
Rejected titles include:
“The Walking Dead Are Dead”
“The Running Dead”
“The Walking Dead and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”
And my personal favorite:
“Shuffling Feet Means Get Off The Street”
No matter how ridiculous the title may be, AMC has already ordered two seasons of the show, so we better get used to it. The first six episodes will air this summer with the remaining set to release in 2016 for season two.
Oh, and here’s the logo we’ve been blessed with:
