TWD spinoff sails towards season 3
AMC’s hit show Fear The Walking Dead has been recommissioned for a third season, just one week into season two’s fifteen episode run.
The Walking Dead spin-off has been picked up for 16 new episodes, created and executive produced by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson – who also created The Walking Dead.
The series stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Alycia Debnam-Carey and Frank Dillane.
Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios, said: “What Dave Erickson and Robert Kirkman have invented in The Walking Dead is to be applauded. Watching Los Angeles crumble through the eyes of our characters and seeing each make decisions and try to figure out the rules of their new world – it’s fresh, eerie and compelling and we’re all in for the ride.”
Fear The Walking Dead Season 3 will debut in 2017. The series airs on AMC Global in the UK.
