Default Fear The Walking Dead (spinoff)

This will be starting in July. Excited to see a new area and new version of the beginning. I won't post any details of the show in the OP.

From what I understand, the paths of the two shows do not cross. I can't imagine that you'd need to be caught up on one show to watch the other. Last year, Netflix added TWD about a month before the new season premiered. I would guess that AMC may run TWD in a marathon format just prior to the new series.

It's a completely different story with none of the same characters. It's going to be set in California at the very outset of the ZA, so we'll get to see what it was like before mostly everybody was already dead.

I don't know about the writers.

While the shows don't cross per se, I hope they throw in a zombie-Daryl cameo. Not to imply to the watcher that Daryl died, but just so they can all yap about it online "ZOMG DID YOU SEE ZOMBIE DARYL? STILL HAD HIS CROSSBOW SLUNG ACROSS HIS BACK".

And they'll still have an other brother for the second spinoff. Genius.
