AMC's 'Fear the Walking Dead' to End After 8 Seasons

During the network's presentation at the Television Critics Association's winter press tour today, AMC revealed that the upcoming eighth season of its original drama series Fear the Walking Dead will be its last.

The 12-episode eighth and final season will roll out in two six-episode parts, the first of which begins Sunday, May 14 at 9/8c. The second part will return later in the year.

The final season begins after the conclusion of Season 7, when Morgan and Madison's hopes to rescue Mo from PADRE did not go as planned. Now, Morgan, Madison and the others they brought to the island are living under PADRE's cynical rule. With our characters demoralized and dejected, the task of reigniting belief in a better world rests with the person Morgan and Madison set out to rescue in the first place - Morgan's daughter, Mo.

The drama stars Lennie James, Kim Dickens, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Austin Amelio, Christine Evangelista, Karen David, Jenna Elfman and Rubén Blades.

Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg serve as showrunners. They executive produce with Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero, Michael Satrazemis and David Alpert. AMC Studios produces.

Moreover, the cable channel announced premiere windows for the three additional series set in the Walking Dead that will debut over the next year. The Walking Dead: Dead City starring Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan will launch in June. The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon starring Norman Reedus will debut later this year. And finally, The Walking Dead: Rick and Michonne will premiere in early 2024.
