The first season of Fear the Walking Dead hasn’t even debuted yet and it’s already renewed for a second! AMC either has tremendous faith in what could be an excellent TV show, or they’re banking on bringing in every single Walking Dead fan, who will no doubt want to get in their zombie-drama fix earlier than October. Or both.
The first season of Fear the Walking Dead, set to premiere August 23, 2015, will only be six episodes long. But when it returns sometime in 2016, Fear’s second season will be a whopping 15-episode run. Hooray! More walker bashing!
Fear the Walking Dead is a companion series that takes place in Los Angeles at the start of the zombie apocalypse, sometime before Rick Grimes wakes up from his coma on the other side of the country. The show centers around a dysfunctional and broken family trying to survive the mysterious outbreak…and from the looks of it, each other.
