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.
