Although it’s still dwarfed by the parent series, and its ratings dropped significantly in the second season, fans shouldn’t worry that the Fear the Walking Dead TV show will be cancelled too soon. AMC renewed The Walking Dead prequel series through season four, back in April of 2017. What’s not clear is whether that renewal was for a fourth and final season. It’s likely that both creative and business considerations will influence that decision. Notably, despite its drop-off, Fear the Walking Dead is still AMC’s second highest rated series. Will it end next season, or continue for years to come? Stay tuned.
An AMC horror drama, Fear the Walking Dead stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Rubén Blades, Mercedes Mason, and Colman Domingo. Buffy veteran Emma Caulfield is also joining the new installment. The story unfolds in Los Angeles and Mexico and centers on a blended family. This dysfunctional group must band together, in the face of the coming Zombie Apocalypse.
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.
