AMC announced today that Fear the Walking Dead has been picked up for a seventh season. The good news comes just days after the horror drama went on hiatus for its current sixth season.

The zombie series, which began as a companion to The Walking Dead, has seen some significant changes over the years. Most of the original cast has departed and the current showrunners have altered its overall tone and storytelling style. The show's timeline has also gotten closer to the mothership series, with two stars of The Walking Dead having now crossed over to Fear.

Look for Season 7 of Fear the Walking Dead to premiere in mid-to-late 2021. In the meantime, the second half of Season 6 should return in early 2021.
