The Walking Dead was confirmed to be ending after season 11, which will air in two 12-episode chunks between 2021 and 2022.
There is also another sister series in the Walking Dead universe, World Beyond, which has been commissioned for a two-season limited run.
Reviewing the new season of Fear The Walking Dead, NME said: “The success of this season hinges on how well these separate narratives are eventually weaved together, but there’s little here to inspire confidence.”
Fox shared a new table read clip from one of the new episodes on YouTube last month (November 19), featuring Ross Marquand, Seth Gilliam, Robert Patrick and is narrated by Josh McDermitt.
A synopsis of the new episodes reveals that “we find our survivors trying to pick themselves up by their bootstraps following the destruction the Whisperers left in their wake.”
