Fear the Walking Dead has been renewed for a third season

Fear the Walking Dead renewed for season three

The second season of AMC's Walking Dead spin-off premiered just last week, and like its big brother, Fear the Walking Dead also knows the pleasure of an early renewal. The spin-off follows the lives of a dysfunctional family as the zombie apocalypse begins to spread across the globe, and while it isn't quite as popular as its predecessor, AMC has nonetheless announced that they'll be renewing the series for a third season consisting of sixteen episodes to air in 2017. The network also renewed Talking Dead: Fear, the live aftershow hosted by Chris Hardwick.

President of AMC, SundanceTV, and AMC Studios Charlie Collier said:

What Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman have invented in Fear the Walking Dead is to be applauded. Watching Los Angeles crumble through the eyes of our characters and seeing each make decisions and try to figure out the rules of their new world – it’s fresh, eerie and compelling and we’re all in for the ride. As Victor Strand observed, ‘The only way to survive a mad world is to embrace the madness.’ We thank the millions of fans for embracing this mad world and look forward to sailing far into the future.

After escaping off the coast of Los Angeles, the survivors found refuge on the Abigail, a yacht owned by the mysterious Victor Strand (Colman Domingo). I haven't quite warmed to Fear the Walking Dead yet, but I'm willing to stick with the series for a while longer as it did take The Walking Dead a season or two to find its legs as well; plus, underwater zombies is something I can't say no to.

Fear the Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on AMC.

Hmmm

When I heard this show was going to show us the initial outbreak I expected them to give us glimpses of what was happening nationally, possibly globally. I wanted to see DC and CDC dealing with the issue, who patient zero was, see society start to come apart. Instead we were given two bland leads, teens whose angst is the sole thing immune to the out break, and some incredibly poor pacing. But when the title is a bland unimaginative rip off of the original, did anyone expect better?

"Watching Los Angeles crumble..."

What show did they see? Was that in the deleted scenes? I remember waiting for that and then suddenly being told weeks passed and it already happened. And now they're on a boat. Terrible show. Shoot it in the head.

Garbage

Maybe they should have worked on developing a cohesive story and interesting characters on the original show before doing a spinoff

I suffered through season one and found Victor Strand the only intriguing character out of the entire cast. Episode two of season two I actually turned off half way through because the characters were irritating me so much I could stand no more. Of course there is potential in such a series, but that potential is being wasted so far, BIG TIME!

It has room to grow

The great thing about this show is that unlike The Walking Dead, we the audience have absolutely no idea who will step up to the plate and be our "Rick"out of this group or who will be the villain. With The Walking Dead fans somewhat know what to expect if you read the comics (even though the creators try to surprise us by going astray from the comics at times). This show is a fresh take with characters we have no idea about or what their true intentions are. We have no idea who will be killed

With The Walking Dead fans somewhat know what to expect if you read the comics (even though the creators try to surprise us by going astray from the comics at times). This show is a fresh take with characters we have no idea about or what their true intentions are. We have no idea who will be killed off first or when. Kind of exciting. There are a lot of gripes about this show, but I love Zombies, grew up watching Zombie movies so to see what this show is trying to do is interesting for me and I hope they find their stride soon before the rest of the audience gets too tired of waiting around for it. This show is the beginning of an apocalypse which I can see being a challenge to present to people already in tune with the level of chaos on The Walking Dead, this show of course feels bland. If this show had aired before The Walking Dead it might have been greeted a little bit better than it currently has. As the audience we grew to know Rick and his group over the years and the sacrifices the group had to make up til now, but starting from the beginning after all we have experienced from The Walking Dead is hard to swallow at times. Its just a different speed then what we are used to, give it time guys.

Cancel it

This is the only show I've ever watched where I want every character to die.

I'm happy it's been renewed. I've enjoyed it so far. I'm looking forward to seeing where the show goes from here. I just hope we start seeing some more walker carnage like it's big brother delivers. Eventually I hope to see large herds of walkers like the Walking Dead delivers.

With a Shitty ass Season 2 opener I don't understand how this could already be renewed.

I love the walking dead, but....

THIS SHOW SUCKS BALLS!!! I can't even tell you how much I loathe this show and all the characters in it. I'm just completely flabbergasted that this thing keeps getting renewed. I don't know why they just didn't do something more interesting for a spin-off, like a governor origin story or something. That way they could keep it short and sweet and have more success with the characters and story. But no...we get a heroin addict that looks like an abercrombie model running around with perfect abs

Alas...BT has this in the UK so I'm yet to watch any of it. On the flip side, I'll be able to binge watch multiple seasons whenever it becomes available on something I have access to.

I'm neutral on this because the first season bored me to tears frankly. It just felt like it was soulless. However the season premier of S2 was really really good. So I'll see how this season goes, now that the groundwork has been put down last season maybe they can come into their own this season. It started off good, and I really like the Strand character. I almost feel like he is going to go full Governor on us eventually.
