Some good news for The Walking Dead fans who are killing time rapidly burning through everything else on their watchlists: AMC Networks has announced its plans to restart production on the second half of Season Six of Fear the Walking Dead in late August in Texas and also on Season 11 of The Walking Dead in October in Georgia.

"Our ability to resume in the safest possible way is something we are closely focused on," CEO Josh Sapan said during a conference call on Tuesday (via Deadline). "We will continue to monitor and adjust accordingly depending on local circumstances."

Fear the Walking Dead has been off the air for nearly a year, and it was announced during the show's Comic-Con@Home panel that the first half of the show's sixth season will premiere on October 11. A trailer for that upcoming season was also revealed, which you can watch below.

The main show in this universe has more of a hiccup to its broadcast continuity, since COVID-19 made finishing production on the Season 10 finale impossible. Earlier this year, AMC indicated that the finale will appear as a special episode later in 2020. That episode is currently slated to broadcast on AMC on Sunday, October 4--one week before the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead--but it is now no longer the final episode of Season 10, as AMC has ordered six additional episodes. Those further episodes will premiere in sometime in early 2021.
