AMC’s Walking Dead spin-off, Fear The Walking Dead has been renewed for a third season. This news comes only days after the second season premiere.
The third season will mark the largest season order to date and it will consist of 16 episodes. This is an increase from season two and ten more eposide compared to season one.
AMC president Charlie Collier spoke about why they felt Fear would be renewed.
“What Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman have invented in Fear the Walking Dead is to be applauded. Watching Los Angeles crumble through the eyes of our characters and seeing each make decisions and try to figure out the rules of their new world — it’s fresh, eerie and compelling and we’re all in for the ride. As Victor Strand observed, ‘The only way to survive a mad world is to embrace the madness.’ We thank the millions of fans for embracing this mad world and look forward to sailing far into the future.”
Fear comes in second place as the highest ranked TV show, only behind The Walking Dead.
