Fear the Walking Dead Confirmed for a Second Season Before Its First Season Even Starts

AMC doesn't fear the walking viewership.



AMC seems to be really confident in Fear the Walking Dead. According to Deadline Hollywood, the network announced that the show will be getting a second season. PS – the first season doesn’t air until August 23rd. Eeeeeenteresting…

Season Two of Fear the Walking Dead will be 15 episodes, and will debut in 2016. I’ve gotta say that, while I was initially skeptical (and I still think the title is horrible), the Comic-Con trailer made me think twice, and I’m actually looking forward to this. As you already know, FTWD is a prequel show set in Los Angeles at the same time that Rick Grimes is in a coma. It shows how the zombie apocalypse happened, and in doing so, seems to examine some other stuff that’s really relevant today – the way that we record everything we see, the moral implications of police shooting unarmed civilians, and how difficult it is to let go of feeling safe after living in a society from which we’re removed as we take it all in on screens, seemingly removed from real danger.

What do you think? Are you excited for Fear the Walking Dead?
