AMC Has Renewed "Fear the Walking Dead" for a Seventh Season

Currently midway through its sixth season, Deadline reports this week that the emotional and intense story arcs of AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead" will continue into yet another season.

"The Walking Dead" companion series stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, Austin Amelio, Ruben Blades and Karen David.

In Season 6 of "Fear the Walking Dead", scattered to Virginia's distant settlements, the group struggles to survive apart from one another while trying to hold onto who they are and what they once believed in.

With "The Walking Dead" scheduled to end in 2022 with an expanded eleventh season, the site recounts this year's previous announcement: "An untitled spinoff starring fan favorites Norman Reedus and Melissa McBride in their roles as Daryl Dixon and Carol Peletier is scheduled to debut in 2023. AMC is also currently airing “The Walking Dead: World Beyond”, the second stand-alone series in "TWD" franchise. Standalone films centered on Rick Grimes, starring Andrew Lincoln, also are in the works."

"Fear the Walking Dead" is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple along with showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg. Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero also executive produce.

The second half of "Fear the Walking Dead" Season 6 will premiere in 2021.
