When Fear The Walking Dead was originally announced, it came with the hope that maybe the creators would shed some light on what originally started the zombie outbreak.
Robert Kirkman made no bones about not touching it in the main show, and it appears Fear is going the same route. When The Wall Street Journal caught up to Executive Producer Greg Nicotero, he elaborated a bit on the subject.
"We've never really wanted to go there," Nicotero says. "I know on 'The Walking Dead' we made a conscious decision to not open that can of worms. I think it's safe to say that 'Fear' follows the same rule – it's really not about how it's happening. It's about how you survive it. That ship has sailed."
It looks like the CDC episode that occurred in season 1 will really be the only reference to the disease itself. Originally I thought that was the main purpose of the spinoff show, but it's been content with just showing the early days of the outbreak, as opposed to the outbreaks origins.There is a part of me that wishes they would give us some sort of clue, but I guess that isn't in the cards.
