Fear the Walking Dead is an American horror television drama prequel and companion series of AMC's original The Walking Dead series. Based on the comic series of the same name by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard, Fear the Walking Dead is set in the initial outset of the walking dead virus, with the executive producers being Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert.

Originally set in Los Angeles, California, the second series is currently centred around the area of Baja California, in Mexico. The series is distinct from the original, with Kirkman himself stating that the show is "technically not a spin-off," because it doesn't have any characters in common with the original series.[1] Furthermore, unlike The Walking Dead, the series starts from the outset of the outbreak (see a timeline here). Following the Clark, Manawa, and eventually Salazar family throughout the first season, Fear The Walking Dead became the most-watched series premiere in basic cable television history, when the pilot episode receiving a total of 10.13 million viewers during its initial broadcast with 6.3 million in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic.[2][3]


On March 9, 2015, AMC announced that Fear the Walking Dead, a companion series to The Walking Dead had been picked up for two seasons[4] with the first stages of production beginning on May 11, 2015 in Vancouver.[5] The first season premiered on August 23, 2015 on AMC and consisted of six episodes.

The second season - consisting of fifteen episodes - was announced to have began filming in Baja, Mexico on December 3, 2015[6] and began premiering on April 10, 2016.[7] The second season was split - the first seven episodes from April 10th, and the remaining eight later in the year[8] with the second part of the second season beginning on August 21st. [9] AMC has confirmed that the show will be renewed for a third season.[10]
