Yeah I found the first season tough going (compared to earlier seasons of TWD; still better than the last 2 seasons of the main show) but the last season of FTWD in particular was A1. You actually give a **** about the characters, unlike TWD.

Fear the Walking Dead has been renewed for season 5

The Walking Dead's little zombie brother is starting to walk on its own. AMC has confirmed there will be a Fear The Walking Dead season 5.

AMC made the announcement at the Television Critics Association summer tour, while also confirming new seasons of Better Call Saul and McMafia.

Like Better Call Saul, the most recent season of Fear The Walking Dead hasn't even finished yet. The first half of season 4 ended on 10th June, with the explosive finale "No One's Gone." The second half of the season will begin on 12th August in the US.

It's been a tumultuous year for Fear The Walking Dead. This season saw the arrival of Morgan Jones (played by Lennie James) from The Walking Dead universe's flagship show. The show then made numerous other high profile additions to the cast including Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace and Jenna Elfman.

To thin out the crowd after all the new arrivals, Fear The Walking Dead killed two characters who had been around since day one: Madison (Kim Dickens) and Nick (Frank Dillane). The violent, unpredictable world of the zombie apocalypse in The Walking Dead has always meant that the shows can call for a mass upheaval of the cast whenever they'd like but Fear The Walking Dead season 4 was the first time either it or The Walking Dead had tried it in such a systematic fashion. The effect has been at least intriguing enough for AMC to roll the dice on season 5.

Fear The Walking Dead is showrun by Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg. Angela Kang will take over for The Walking Dead in season 9. Previous Walking Dead showrunner Scott Gimple is now overseeing the entire franchise. That could mean for crossovers or synergy between the two shows in future years.

More as we have it.

I stopped watching FTWD halfway through S3, because I found it very boring and the characters uninteresting. But, because of the series retool from S4 onwards, and Morgan joining the show, I went back and watched the episodes I missed and S4.

I keep all the main series episodes on a hard-drive, with plans to rewatch the series whenever it finishes. I deleted the first three seasons of FTWD when I originally stopped watching the show. I never plan to revisit those episodes.

However, S4 has been decent. But, if I rewatch it in the future, I only want a more or less Morgan-centred version, to watch between Seasons 8 and 9 of the main series. I don't know if this will be of any use to anyone else, maybe fans of the main series that only want Morgan's story? Anyways...

The Walking Dead - Season 8.II (aka Fear The Walking Dead - Season 4)

The Walking Dead - S8.IIE1, What's Your Story
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE2, Good Out Here
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE3, Laura*
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE4, No One's Gone
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE5, People Like Us
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE6, The Code
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE7, Weak
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE8, MM 54
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE9, I Lose People...
The Walking Dead - S8.IIE10, ...I Lose Myself

*You don't need to see this episode either, if you just want Morgan's story, but it's a great episode, and one I would rewatch with the Morgan episodes.

There you have it, a 10-episode season (vs a 16-episode season) that focuses mainly on Morgan's journey, and cuts out any episodes overly focused on Madison (ugh), Alicia, Nick, Strand, or Luciana.

Personally I’m not a big Morgan fan so thanks for the list of episodes I should avoid!

Jaysus what did he do to deserve this?

The Walking Dead star Austin Amelio is headed to Fear the Walking Dead to serve as the next crossover character between the two AMC shows.

Having been entirely absent from The Walking Dead's ninth season, Amelio will reprise his role as Dwight on Fear the Walking Dead, has learned from multiple sources involved with the series.

The move follows the crossover lead previously carried out by Morgan Jones actor Lennie James. James joined Fear the Walking Dead in its fourth season and has since become the show's lead actor. With Amelio, James, Jenna Elfman, Garret Dillahunt, and Maggie Grace all having joined Fear the Walking Dead within the past two years, the show continues to transition away from its original cast and into something new.

Original cast members Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, and Danay Garcia remain on Fear the Walking Dead to begin Season Five.

Dwight was last seen on The Walking Dead in its Season Eight finale when Daryl Dixon exiled him from Alexandria and told him never to return. It appears Dwight is doing just that, allowing Amelio to head to his home state of Texas for production on the sibling series which is set years prior to The Walking Dead's current Whisperer story in Season Nine.

Speaking to members of the press at San Diego Comic-Con in 2018, the Dead universe's chief content officer Scott Gimple was quick to not rule out any possible crossovers in the future despite The Walking Dead seeing a massive time jump.

“It does not [rule out more crossovers],” Gimple said. “That’s about all I got to say. It does not but I wouldn’t expect it all the time. Things could happen. You never know who might pop up on Fear the Walking Dead. That includes The Walking Dead and potentially people in the past from Fear the Walking Dead.”

At the time, the plan to have Amelio and his Dwight character join Fear the Walking Dead in its fifth season was already in motion.

Fear The Walking Dead Season 6 will start in October, with the first episode airing in the UK on BT TV channel AMC on Monday 12th October 2020 – one day after it’s US premiere.

Through time jumps, Fear the Walking Dead season 6 could see the spin-off finally catch up to The Walking Dead in terms of the show’s timeline. For the most part, The Walking Dead has been ahead, especially since it was on the air for four whole seasons before the spinoff series premiered, plus the fact that Fear the Walking Dead kicked off at the very beginning of the apocalypse. At this point, there’s still several years between them.

Fear the Walking Dead jumped forward by two years at the start of season 4, putting the show on the same page as the main series for the first time. This enabled AMC to give Morgan (Lennie James) a smooth transition from one show to the other. The two shows going at the same pace didn’t last for very long, though. The Walking Dead leaped way ahead early in season 9 when it featured a massive six-year time skip. Now, Fear the Walking Dead is approximately seven years behind, as the setting is still 2013. The Walking Dead, on the other hand, is well into 2020, and has been for quite some time.
