‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Ending Sooner Than Expected

Fear the Walking Dead is set to conclude with its upcoming 8th season. However, now the spin-off is ending sooner than expected. According to ComicBook.com, the post-apocalyptic drama’s final episode is set to premiere a week ahead of schedule. The series will finish with a two-part finale on November 19.

The first The Walking Dead spin-off has had an impressive run. Fear‘s eight seasons totaled 113 episodes. The last season kicks off October 22nd with “Anton”. New episodes of Fear the Walking Dead season 8 will premiere every Sunday until November 19th. For AMC+ subscribers, episodes will be available for streaming at 12 a.m. PT/3 a.m. ET on Sundays, followed by airing on the AMC channel at 9 p.m. ET/8c.

AMC teased what’s to come via a press release. “Now that Shrike (Maya Eshet) and her influence are gone, Madison (Kim Dickens) sets sights on transforming PADRE into the safe haven the old Stadium was meant to be. But in doing so the island becomes a target as well as a beacon as word of Madison and this land of resources spreads, attracting unwanted attention that puts PADRE back in peril and questions whether our heroes even deserve to save it.”

As ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Ends, New Spin-offs Continue to Appear

Avid fans of Fear the Walking Dead and the flagship series, which also ended this year, need not worry. Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes and Danai Gurira’s Michonne return to the small screen in February with The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live. This spinoff follows their journey after leaving the original show as they battle the CRM, the most pervasive survivor group in the zombie franchise.

With a focus on Michonne’s mission to rescue her husband, the series promises to pull back fans. A recent teaser trailer showed Rick’s daring escape from the CRM. It also showed Michonne channeling a samurai, wearing armor, and riding a horse. Terry O’Quinn, known for his role as John Locke on the hit series Lost, is set to join the show as the character Beale. Meanwhile, a familiar face is also set to return for The Walking Dead: The Ones Who Live. Pollyanna McIntosh will reprise her role as Janis. Her character was last seen in the spin-off The World Beyond.

Meanwhile, AMC confirmed that Melissa McBride will reprise her role as Carol from the original series in season two of Norman Reedus’ spin-off, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon. McBride played Carol in the main series for eleven seasons and will return as a series regular in the spin-off set in France.

In France, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon follows Daryl’s journey far from Atlanta. Stranded on the shores, he becomes the guardian of a young boy named Laurent. They struggle to survive as Daryl seeks to reunite with his own people in the Commonwealth.
