The zombie drama's story will conclude later this year.
January 10, 2023
AMC announced today that Fear the Walking Dead will be coming to an end after its upcoming eighth season. The news comes as the network pencils in a return date for the 'Walking Dead' spinoff's final 12 episodes, which will air in two parts; the first six beginning on May 14 and the final six later in the year.
The zombie drama has been through some significant changes over the course of its run. Most of the original cast have departed and the current showrunners have altered its overall tone and storytelling style. The show's timeline has also aligned more with the recently-concluded mothership series, with two stars of 'The Walking Dead' having crossed over to Fear the Walking Dead.
The original premise disappeared over time and it's kind of gone down TWD path. It also kind of jumped the shark a little bit with the whole nuclear blast arc.
go across the river.
attack and kill the dude or aria that has your kid.
take kid back. ruway
the story jumped so many sharks i was happy to see madison reappear.
but now she does the jump shark get baby back from overlord scenario.
But the series always had an identity crisis. It started out as an ordinary family caught up in the apocalypse, but then it had to turn them into superheroes at the center of everything. It was just the west coast version of Rick and his gang in the east. And too many of the characters went through radical character changes that didn't make sense.
The show was personally at it's best when Garrett Dillahunts John Dorie was the moral compass of the show. The later addition of Keith Carradine as John Dorie sr also added a lot of depth to the Dorie family as they eventually replaced the Clark's.
I hope very much to see some of the characters again, hopefully we can get a "Sarah and Wendell" short series that features everyone's favorite apocalypse truckers bringing beer to settlements.
I wouldn't mind a final walking dead series after we bring Rick, Daryl, Negan and Morgan back to Alexandria and see them as old men in that time jump that ended the original comic.
