Fear the Walking Dead has been renewed for a fourth zombie season.
The second season averaged 4.19 million US viewers down 45% from the previous season, but still enough to make it AMC’s second highest rated original scripted series.
Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg of Once Upon a Time have joined as co-showrunners, while Scott M. Gimple, executive producer and showrunner of The Walking Dead will also become an executive producer of Fear the Walking Dead.
“We’re very excited to continue the journey of Fear The Walking Dead, and truly look forward to working with the talented team of Andrew Chambliss, Ian Goldberg, and Scott Gimple,” said Joel Stillerman, president of original programming and development for AMC and SundanceTV.
“We are thrilled to be joining Fear The Walking Dead and couldn’t be more excited to work alongside the wonderful team at AMC on this show,” said Chambliss and Goldberg. “We love this universe and are truly honored to have the chance to contribute to it.”
It airs on FX in Australia, which resumes with Season 3 in June.
