The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead Are One Step Closer To Coming Back

The shows will continue work in October and late August, respectively.

4 Comments

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.

Wish they would kill these shows off, it has lost its magic many seasons ago.

I still remember watching the very first episode of tWD when it premiered ... 'by accident'! I was alone at home, doing paper work, as the tv played in the background. The lights were flickering as some people had cut down trees onto the power lines earlier that week - Halloween. And what ever was on the tv before the WD went off and it came on. At first was not really even watching the tv show, but by the end of it I was stunned. So different from anything that had been on before. No one I knew had watched the premiere that I talked to, but it got crazy popular in my circle by the 3rd episode.

I personally would have wrapped it up around the 6th season.

@jenovaschilld: I do agree as how long do you possibly believe the story can continue? The plots are becoming dry. The show began with Andrew Lincoln and should have ended with him as well. The beginning was great as it did focus on the dead and also the main characters and it was an good plot and if anything they should have started closing down the show after season 7.
