What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the AMC cable channel, the Fear the Walking Dead TV show stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Maggie Grace, Colman Domingo, Danay García, Austin Amelio, Mo Collins, Alexa Nisenson, Karen David, Christine Evangelista, Colby Hollman, Jenna Elfman, Keith Carradine, and Rubén Blades. The show’s story begins in Los Angeles with a dysfunctional and blended family as they search for a safe haven in a horrifying new reality. In the seventh season, Morgan’s group is scattered across Texas as they try to survive the nuclear fallout brought about by Teddy (John Glover) and his followers. Meanwhile, Morgan (James) and Victor (Domingo) clash over their philosophies.
Season Seven Ratings
The seventh season of Fear the Walking Dead averaged a 0.15 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 814,000 viewers. Compared to season six, that’s down by 47% in the demo and down by 31% in viewership in the live+same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but typically the higher-rated series are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.

Will AMC cancel or renew Fear the Walking Dead for season eight? The original Walking Dead series is coming to an end after 11 seasons. While this spin-off hasn’t been as popular, it’s continued to be one of AMC’s top performers. I don’t think that it will be cancelled this time around.
