Fear the Walking Dead renewed for season 7

fear the walking dead s6 key artFear the Walking Dead will be returning to AMC for a seventh season, the network has just confirmed.

AMC made the official announcement via Twitter. The sixth season of The Walking Dead spinoff started airing last October and seven episodes have aired so far, almost half of its entire season. But given the impact of the pandemic on television production, it isn’t clear when the rest of the season will reach our screens.

Fear the Walking Dead currently stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, Austin Amelio, Ruben Blades, and Karen David.

A study by Variety shows that there has been a steady decline in viewership of the show in the last five seasons. Figures have not yet been released about the first half of season six. But reviews of this latest season have been more favorable than those of the last, which suffered from a number of narrative and structural problems.

As previously reported,  The Walking Dead will be ending with its eleventh season which will consist of 24 episodes which will air over two years beginning late 2021. Fear the Walking Dead is the first spinoff in this universe, followed by The Walking Dead: World Beyond, which focuses on the younger generation coming of age during the zombie apocalypse. But The Walking Dead: World Beyond has been billed as a two-season limited run series. Other spinoffs, however, are still on their way. There is the previously announced but as-yet-untitled Daryl and Carol spinoff series and then the Tales of the Walking Dead episodic anthology series. And there’s also the upcoming films starring Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes.

Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero.

Fear the Walking Dead season six will resume soon on AMC.
