The original Walking Dead series is ending with season 11. Since this spin-off has never been a big hit for AMC in the ratings, is Fear the Walking Dead more likely to be cancelled or renewed for season eight? Stay tuned.

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.

Meanwhile, Morgan (James) and Victor (Domingo) clash over their philosophies.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s chances of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.

For comparison: Season six of Fear the Walking Dead on AMC averaged a 0.29 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.18 million viewers.
Note: These are the final national ratings, including all live+same day viewing and DVR playback (through 3:00 AM). Early fast affiliate ratings (estimates) are indicated with an “*”. 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.
