Fear the Walking Dead was confirmed for a 5th season renewal at the TCA press tour on the weekend.
The zombie spin-off sees Walking Dead‘s Lennie James joining the series in its fourth season, along with Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace and Jenna Elfman. Returning cast members include Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, and Danay Garcia.
AMC announced the renewal along with Better Call Saul and more of McMafia.
“In an environment where viewer choice is almost unlimited, the success of these shows is especially meaningful, with characters and stories that our viewers connect with and return to season after season,” said David Madden, president of original programming for AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios. “It’s a privilege to continue collaborating with and sharing the vision of the talented creatives behind these series, and we’re excited to start exploring the next chapter in the lives of these unique and complex characters.”
Fear the Walking Dead is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero, and produced by AMC Studios.
Season 4 returns to Showcase from August 13.
