Fear The Walking Dead & Talking Dead Get Renewed
Following the season 2 premiere of Fear The Walking Dead, AMC has now announced that series has been renewed for a Season 3 with 16 episodes in 2017.
“What Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman have invented in Fear The Walking Dead is to be applauded,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “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.”
Fear the Walking Dead airs Sundays at 9/8c on AMC and is the No. 2 show on cable (behind only The Walking Dead) and the No. 7 show in all of television – cable and broadcast – among adults 18-49 this season.
AMC has also announced Talking Dead will be back for another season.
AMC's Fear the Walking Dead returns at sea, aboard the Abigail. The group is unaware of the true breadth of the apocalypse; they assume there still a chance that some city, state, or nation might be unaffected, some place where Infection has not hit. Abandoning land, Madison, Travis and Daniel gather their grieving families for ports unknown. But the respite of Strand's ocean-side home is short-lived. They will discover that the water may be no safer than land.
