Despite falling ratings, AMC has renewed its spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead for a fourth season. The announcement was made by the cable network this weekend. I genuinely thought that goose was cooked.
After showrunner Dave Erickson stood down, Once Upon a Time producers Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have been named new co-showrunners.
Current The Walking Dead showrunner Scott M. Gimple is also joining as an executive producer. The third season of the series premieres on June 4th.
Recently it was suggested that the main series could run for 20 years, but I doubt there can be all that much gas left in either tank at this point…
