AMC Renews “Fear the Walking Dead” for Fourth Season

Even with 5 million viewers per week, I’m a little surprised AMC renewed “Fear the Walking Dead” for a fourth season ahead of its upcoming season three premiere on June 4. It’ll be interesting to see if viewership grows, or drops like its sister series “The Walking Dead”.

In other new, Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg (“Once Upon a Time”) are boarding “Fear” as co-showrunners, starting with season four. Additionally, Scott M. Gimple, executive producer and showrunner of “The Walking Dead” will become an executive producer of “Fear the Walking Dead.”

“We’re very excited to continue the journey of ‘Fear The Walking Dead,’ and truly look forward to working with the talented team of Andrew Chambliss, Ian Goldberg, and Scott Gimple,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV.

“We are thrilled to be joining ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ and couldn’t be more excited to work alongside the wonderful team at AMC on this show,” said Chambliss and Goldberg. “We love this universe and are truly honored to have the chance to contribute to it.”

    Even if it’s not really good I enjoy more this than The Walking Dead.

  • GunsOfNavarone

    Season 1 of Fear was very hit or miss but Season 2 was a lot more consistent and in some way more riveting than events in TWD Season 7.

    Of course it is renewed, They have a bigger picture in mind, even at only 4 seasons it would be a huge failure.

  • the usual suspect

    My love for zombies makes me watch anything zombie related good or bad.. that being said I will continue to watch this show..

  • zombie84_41

    I do enjoy this show, but what I do is watch a few eps of the season. Then stop, then watch the rest, when the time comes for next season so that way I know WTF is going on.

    we don’t want to hear your opinion asshole. Sick of your hate filled rants about both these shows. Go fuck yourself

  • KSE1977

    Well with 5 million viewers, it still makes sense to renew the show. They probably had the cast through the end of the season anyways. If the ratings dry up then season 4 will end the show.

  • Dan

    Surprised? Most shows would LOVE 5 mill viewers a week. Preacher has pathetic ratings & it was renewed. You just hate all things WD, so your opinion holds no water.

  • Mavis Zene

    I’m with you. Both shows are shit. Preacher is by far the best show on right now.

    I faithfully purchase each season of TWD on blu-ray when they are released, and I do enjoy watching the seasons without commercials, even if I had already sat through the show every Sunday. It’s just so easy to revisit and enjoy a 2nd time (or more).

    FtWD hasn’t had the same impact on me. I have yet to buy any of the seasons. I enjoy it enough to keep watching, but so far it still hasn’t been as good as the parent series. I hope that it picks up in quality and entertainment eventually, and if it does I’ll have no problem going back and finally picking up the earlier seasons.

  • No thanks. Keep it. I really looked forward to this show and each season has let me down thus far. Starting off strong, limping through the middle, with a mediocre finale. No thanks. Unless they really pick the pace up of the show, I’m going to continue losing interest. I was so pissed at the wasted time they spent on that stupid boat. What a cop out. This adaption has so much potential to explore what happened before the outbreak but instead, used TWD approach where it just started happening…….. Run. Makes no sense. TWD works because the characters are cherished, and we have become close to them. In FTWD, it’s like they were thrown on us and we are just watching them on their journey. Smh. So much potential. The hotel situation is entertaining. Not giving up completely, just really wish they would escalate the show already. It shouldn’t have taken 3 seasons to get to some juicy stuff… TWD had us captivated from EP 1. At least for me.

    This show sucks. Atleast with Walking Dead there are some characters to pull for. I’d like to see everyone on Fear die, just not enough to watch/wait for it to happen. I gave up on it but my wife keeps watching.

  • huntermc

    Eh, I don’t hate this show, but if they announced that this was the final season I would be okay with that.
