AMC Gives Green Light To Season 4 Of Fear The Walking Dead

AMC has opted to go ahead and order a fourth season of the network’s popular zombie drama Fear the Walking Dead.

A spin-off of The Walking Dead, the program is a prequel that details what happened just prior to the zombie apocalypse which made the events of the original series possible. Although it is not quite the runaway success that Walking Dead, which remains the most watched show by adults between 18 and 49, is, Fear still ranks as one of the top-rated shows on cable at the moment.

The announcement that the show will get a fourth season might come as a surprise given that the third season is not even set to debut until June 4th, but it definitely shows that AMC is confident in the show.

Superherohype, the source of this story, shared the following information and quotes from newly-added showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg regarding the program:

“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.”

In the second half of its second season, Fear the Walking Dead averaged 5.3 million viewers per episode, including 3.4 million adults 25-54 and 3 million adults 18-49 in Nielsen live+3 ratings, firmly establishing “Fear” as one of the top shows on cable.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
