AMC's fan favorite original series Fear the Walking Dead will return for the second half of Season 2 on Sunday, August 21st, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, as announced during last night's Talking Dead following the mid-season finale. The second half will consist of eight episodes.
The Season 2 opener delivered 8.8 million viewers, including 5.7 million adults 25-54 and 5.3 million adults 18-49 in live+3 ratings, solidifying "Fear the Walking Dead" as the #2 show on cable (behind only "The Walking Dead") and the #7 show in all of television – cable and broadcast – among adults 18-49 this television season.
As Fear The Walking Dead embarks on the second half of Season 2, the Clark, Manawa, and Salazar families fracture. The events that took place at the Abigail compound have set all of our heroes adrift. Now they must forge their own paths to survive.
Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, and David Alpert and stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris, and Colman Domingo as Strand.
Fear's return date likely indicates The Walking Dead's return date, as well. Fear has eight episode left in its second season which will run until a finale October 9, marking the following Sunday, October 16 for The Walking Dead's season seven premiere.
