The Walking Dead franchise has done very well for AMC. While it may not be as popular as it once was, it’s still a top draw for the cable channel. This is the franchise’s first anthology series so viewers won’t be following the same characters week after week. Will it be a success? Will Tales of the Walking Dead be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A horror drama series, the Tales of the Walking Dead TV show was created by Scott M. Gimple and Channing Powell. The first season of this Walking Dead spin-off stars Terry Crews, Olivia Munn, Parker Posey, Jillian Bell, Samantha Morton, Scarlett Blum, Lauren Glazier, Poppy Liu, Anthony Edwards, Jessie T. Usher, Embeth Davidtz, Loan Chabanol, Gage Munroe, Daniella Pineda, and Danny Ramirez. The show’s standalone episodes focus on both new and established characters within the walker apocalypse. Each episode has its own tone and point of view. The stakes are high in each story, pushing characters with relentless, life-threatening choices and situations. Viewers are shown the apocalypse through different eyes, discovering more worlds, mythos, and mysteries of the Walking Dead.
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.

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.
