Many of you may not have EVEN seen the Season 2 premiere of Fear The Walking Dead (which aired Sunday, April 10th) or if you are like me, you are still trying to collect your thoughts on the episode. But AMC has already announced that they have renewed the series for a third season. The third season (16 episodes) is set to air in 2017. Talking Dead: Fear, hosted by Chris Hardwick has also been renewed which airs after every episode of the series.
Charlie Collier (president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios) had this to say about the series:
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.
A spin-off of the hit show, The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead takes place in Los Angeles showing the beginnings of the “end of the world” prior to the terrifying devistation depicted in The Walking Dead and what these new character must face along the way.
