With 5 seasons spanning 69 episodes, Fear of the Walking Dead is clearly thriving now. The show was based on The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman. It comes under the genre of horror and drama and first came out on August 23rd, 2015. Moreover, the show was even nominated for the Best Horror Television series by Saturn Awards every year from 2016-2019. The show is created by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson. It has been the target for a lot of criticism.
The show is often criticised for being too fake and without enough logic or coherency. Despite these claims, the show is quite entertaining. The show boasts of some of the best action scenes just like the walking dead.
What to expect from the Fear of the Walking Dead?
With the sixth season right around the corner, it’ll be quite interesting to see how the story progresses. The first episode of the next season is set to come out on October 11th 2020 and end on November 29th 2020.
The plot of the show shows us a world where civilisation is on the brink of collapsing due to a zombie apocalypse. It follows a family that seems quite dysfunctional at first trying to survive and come out of the ongoing apocalypse. The family has all sorts of different character types within it from a drug addict son to a guidance councillor mother. As the show runs its course, we see new characters joining up with the family in the hopes of a better chance at survival. The group is forced to learn new skills to stay alive which makes the show more interesting.
The show also features a star-studded cast with the likes of Lennie James and Colman Domingo. Other names that are sure to ring a bell include Alycia Debnam-Carey, Maggie Grace, Danay Garcia and Garret Dillahunt.
What to expect from season 6?
After ABC released the official announcement of the return of the show, the new season is now closer than ever. The sixth season is set to make its return on October 11th 2020. Fear of the Walking Dead will consist of 8 episodes and conclude on November 29th 2020. The new season is also going to feature a lot of time jumps as well. At the end of season 5, we saw Morgan getting left for dead while the rest of his group end up getting scattered across various settlements. The build-up to season six has put it in a very good place t succeed.
