Fear the Walking Dead will continue the second half of its sixth season next April. Nine more episodes will be airing to wrap up the group’s story. The first seven episodes started airing in October 2020 and the show was forced to go on hiatus due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite declining viewership, the show has been renewed for a seventh season which will probably start production only when the current global circumstances improve significantly.

For the remaining episodes of the season, the main cast will also be joined by three new characters to be played by John Glover (The Good Wife, Smallville, Scrooged), Nick Stahl (Carnivale, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Sin City), and Keith Carradine (Madam Secretary, Fargo, Deadwood).

Here is the description of the upcoming episodes:

“As Morgan’s (Lennie James) bid to free the remaining members of the group becomes bolder, Virginia (Colby Minifie) grows increasingly desperate to find her sister and protect the settlements from forces working inside and outside her walls. The second half of Season Six reveals the impact of what living under Virginia’s control has done to each person in this group, who once saw themselves as a family. New alliances will be formed, relationships will be destroyed, and loyalties forever changed. When everyone is forced to take sides, they discover the meaning of, “The End is the Beginning.””

Fear the Walking Dead stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Maggie Grace, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Austin Amelio, Mo Collins, Alexa Nisenson, Karen David, Colby Hollman, Zoe Colletti, Jenna Elfman and Rubén Blades. It is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, Showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and is produced by AMC Studios.

Fear the Walking Dead will return on April 11 on AMC.
