Fear the Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic horror drama television series created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson for AMC. It is a spin-off to The Walking Dead, which is based on the comic book series of the same name by Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. The first three seasons serve as a prequel, focusing on a blended family who experience the start of the zombie apocalypse. Subsequent seasons run concurrently to the original show, with Morgan Jones (Lennie James) from The Walking Dead crossing over into the series.

The series features a large ensemble cast, originally led by Kim Dickens as Madison Clark, Cliff Curtis as Travis Manawa, Frank Dillane as Nick Clark, and Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia Clark. Following a reboot with its fourth season, the series has been led by Lennie James as Morgan Jones. Other series regulars have included Colman Domingo, Mercedes Mason, Rubén Blades, Danay García, Maggie Grace, Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman, Karen David, Austin Amelio, Mo Collins, and Christine Evangelista.

Fear the Walking Dead premiered on August 23, 2015. The current seventh season premiered on October 17, 2021. Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg serve as the showrunners since the fourth season, succeeding Erickson from the first three. In December 2021, the series was renewed for an eighth season. Initially set in Los Angeles, filming for the series has taken place in Los Angeles, Texas, Vancouver, Canada, and Mexico.

Premise[edit]

Set in Los Angeles, California and later in Mexico,[1] the first three seasons of Fear the Walking Dead follow a dysfunctional, blended family composed of high school counselor Madison Clark, her English teacher fiancé Travis Manawa, her daughter Alicia, her drug addict son Nick, Travis' son from a previous marriage, Chris, Chris' mother Liza Ortiz, and others who join their group at the onset of the zombie apocalypse.[2][3] They must reinvent themselves, learning new skills and adopting new attitudes in order to survive as civilization collapses around them.[4]

Beginning in the fourth season, the series shifts focus toward Morgan Jones, a character from the original series, who encounters the group's surviving members and new survivors in Texas.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season has a rating of 76%, based on 206 reviews, whose average rating is 6.75/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Fear the Walking Dead recycles elements of its predecessor, but it's still moody and engrossing enough to compete with the original."[93] On Metacritic, the season has a score of 66 out of 100, based on 33 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[94]

Elisabeth Vincentelli of the New York Post rated the first two episodes three out of four stars, stating that "[They] are creepily suspenseful–they're great examples of how effective a slow pace and a moody atmosphere can be."[101] Another positive review of the first episode came from Ken Tucker of Yahoo TV, who wrote, "Fear the Walking Dead is a mood piece, more artful than the original series" and that the cast is "terrific".[102] Tim Goodman of The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "The 90-minute first episode and the hour-long second episode are, while not actually boring, certainly less magnetic than the original."[103] Daniel Fienberg and Alan Sepinwall of HitFix reviewed the premiere episode, with Fienberg calling it "awful ... as bad as The Walking Dead has ever gotten at its very worst", while Sepinwall called his B− review "slightly generous".[104][105]

Season 2[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the season has a rating of 70%, based on 223 reviews, whose average rating is 6.60/10.

Season 3[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the third season has an approval rating of 84% based on 110 reviews, with an average rating of 7.25/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "A distinctive ensemble brings a compelling flavor of Fear the Walking Dead mythos, but this ambitious spinoff still shares its originator's penchant longwinded pacing that may diminish the tension for some viewers."[97] In his season review for IGN, Matt Fowler gave it an 8.2 out of 10, writing, "Fear the Walking Dead more solidly found its tone and voice this season by embracing the arid landscape, ramping up the human-on-human conflict, and rallying around Kim Dickens' anti-hero mom, Madison, as the driving character", and it is now "a better series overall than The Walking Dead".[106]

Season 4[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the fourth season has an approval rating of 80% based on 164 reviews, with an average rating of 6.85/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Fear the Walking Dead shuffles onward confidently in its fourth season with a bevy of horrifying set-pieces and heartbreaking twists, but some viewers may be dispirited by the series' constant reshuffling of its characters."[98] TVLine reevaluated the series for its fourth season, giving it a grade of a "B+". Reviewer Charlie Mason wrote, "it's gone from being an adequate stopgap between seasons of The Walking Dead to a show that's as good or arguably even better than the one from which it was spun off", stating that the season has had several genuine surprises in its storytelling.[107]

Season 5[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the season has a rating of 55% based on 211 reviews, with an average rating of 5.10/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Despite delivering some memorable and splatter-filled zombie set-pieces that fans crave, Fear the Walking Dead feels stiff with early-onset rigor mortis in a fifth season that emphasizes altruism over coherent characterization."[99]

Season 6[edit]

On Rotten Tomatoes, the sixth season has an approval rating of 89% based on 9 reviews, with an average rating of 7.30/10.[100]

Ratings[edit]

Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462[edit]

Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462, a 16-part web series, premiered on October 4, 2015, on AMC.com; it also aired as promos during The Walking Dead season 6. Two of the web series' characters, Alex (previously known as Charlie) and Jake, are introduced in Fear the Walking Dead season 2, episode 3 ("Ouroboros").[143]

Fear the Walking Dead: Passage[edit]

A second 16-part web series debuted on October 17, 2016, and episodes were made available online weekly and aired as promos during the seventh season of The Walking Dead. The web series follows Sierra, a capable survivor, who helps an injured woman named Gabi as they try to find sanctuary. The series was written by Lauren Signorino and Mike Zunic, and directed by Andrew Bernstein.[144]

The Althea Tapes[edit]

A six-part web series was released from July 27 to August 8, 2019, on AMC.com and YouTube. The web series features Althea interviewing different survivors for their story.[145][146]

Dead in the Water[edit]

In March 2021, AMC announced the digital spin-off series Dead in the Water: A Fear the Walking Dead Story, which is set aboard USS Pennsylvania and "tells the story of a submarine crew fighting for survival, cut off from the surface world just as the apocalypse hits, becoming a nuclear-fueled walker-filled death trap with no way out."[147] The special stars Nick Stahl as Jason Riley and premiered on AMC+ on April 10, 2022.[148]

Home media[edit]

The first season was released on Blu-ray and DVD on December 1, 2015.[149] A special edition version of the first season was released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 22, 2016, with new bonus features, including deleted scenes, seven featurettes, and audio commentaries by cast and crew, on all six episodes.[150] The second season, featuring audio commentaries, deleted scenes, and various behind-the-scene featurettes, was released on Blu-ray and DVD on December 13, 2016.[151] The third season, featuring audio commentaries and deleted scenes, was released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 13, 2018.[152] The fourth season, featuring four audio commentaries, was released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 5, 2019.[153]

Lawsuit[edit]

In July 2018, Mel Smith, the creator of the comic book series Dead Ahead, filed a lawsuit against AMC Studios charging that the second season of Fear the Walking Dead stole thematic elements from Dead Ahead, specifically a group of survivors attempting to flee a zombie apocalypse by a boat. The lawsuit also includes David Alpert, who was Smith's agent and who remains a business partner with Robert Kirkman, and who is one of Fear's executive producers; Smith's lawsuit asserts that Alpert violated his fiduciary duty to protect Smith's interests when he began working on Fear. AMC attempted to have the lawsuit dismissed, stating that once one stripped out generic elements of the zombie genre, there were no further similarities between the works. In February 2019, judge Lucy Koh rejected this, believing that it would be necessary to have a discovery phase and expert testimony to evaluate AMC's stance.[154]

In March 2019, AMC settled the lawsuit, details remained confidential.[155]
