New images from the coming AMC series Fear the Walking Dead reveal the characters Madison (Kim Dickens), her children Alicia (Alycia Debnam Carey) and Nick (Frank Dillane), her boyfriend Travis (Cliff Curtis) and Alicia’s boyfriend Matt (Maestro Harrell). Creator Robert Kirkman describes Madison as:

 “[she has] been raising her kids on her own, so she’s a character that has experienced a very abrupt change to her life that she has had to adapt to. So there’s an inherent strength in this single mother that makes her in some ways uniquely adapted to live in the zombie apocalypse.”

Character Travis:

“represents a sense of stability in Madison’s life, and so he’s really 100 percent on board. With the craziness of her life, he’s her rock… He’s definitely got a darkness to his past. There are some interesting revelations to come with him, I’ll just say that. He is finding himself torn between Liza, his ex-wife, and Madison.”

Character Alicia:

“excels at school. She’s on her way to college. She’s very self-sufficient. She’s very self-reliant. She’s kind of the model student and the modelchild.” On the other hand, her brother Nick “is pretty much a parent’s worst nightmare. He has flunked out of college, had a lot of trouble, got mixed up in some bad elements, and is definitelythe problem child.”

Kirkman said of the family:

“So you have these two siblings that are very much at odds with each other. They love each other because they are brother and sister, but to a certain extent it’s almost like they are each other’s worst enemies because one is screwing things up while she’s trying to achieve things and get on to the college, and the other one is seeing her as this reminder of everything that he can’t be.”

Fear the Walking Dead begins later this year. Check out these images:
