AMC is yet to announce a premiere date for spin-off series Fear The Walking Dead, but show creator Robert Kirkman has revealed some important details about the role of Cliff Curtis's character Travis.

The highly anticipated thriller will narrate the events during the zombie virus outbreak but, unlike The Walking Dead, the companion series will be focussed more on love, family and human emotions.

Fear The Walking Dead will feature the story of Madison (Kim Dickens), a widow and mother of two teen children. She is madly in love with Travis, a divorcee who is raising his children after separating from his wife Liza.

However, Kirkman has hinted that the love story will not be a smooth ride as Travis will still have feelings for his ex-wife.

"Travis is a character that represents a sense of stability in Madison's life, and so he's really 100% on board," the show creator told Movie Web.

"With the craziness of her life, he's her rock. He's her foundation. He's come into this and become a part of her life and definitely is someone she's leaned on. 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 his ex-wife Liza and Madison."

This is not the only thing Madison has to deal with, as her son Nick (Frank Dillane) is plagued by bad influences. Her daughter Alicia, on the other hand, is an ideal child.

"Nick is pretty much a parent's worst nightmare," Kirkman teases.

"He has flunked out of college, had a lot of trouble, got mixed up in some bad elements, and is definitely the problem child. And it's exacerbated for him to be next to this perfect sister who seemingly doesn't have anything going on in her life that is negative. But that's not really the case, that's just his perception. 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."

Fear The Walking Dead is expected to premiere on AMC in late summer 2015. The series has already been renewed for season 2.
