The Walking Dead, the first offshoot of AMC’s massively successful zombie series, is leaving for the great zombie apocalypse in the sky. After season 8, Fear the Walking Dead is canceled.
The announcement came during AMC’s panel at the 2023 Winter Television Critics Association, where the network also provided details about upcoming seasons of The Walking Dead and its spinoffs, including the highly anticipated The Walking Dead: Dead City starring Lauren Cohan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon starring Norman Reedus, and the Rick and Michonne Grimes spinoff starring Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira.
Fear the Walking Dead Season 8
Over the course of its seven seasons, AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead has traveled from the early days of the zombie apocalypse in Los Angeles to the US-Mexico border to Texas. After the nuclear bombs went off at the conclusion of season 6, the program has been set in the Southwest since then, but it’s time for a change.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 8 Release Date
Fear the Walking Dead season 8 episode 8 titled “Iron Tiger” will be available to watch on AMC and AMC+ on Sunday, October 29, 2023, at 9 p.m. ET. In the past, AMC+ would often choose to run new episodes of its shows several days ahead of their original air dates. However, the network has decided to air the rest of the episodes on both AMC and AMC+ at the same time.
Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 Story
After losing Grace and relapsing into madness, Morgan escapes the train and joins forces with Madison, Daniel, and his gang in an effort to thwart PADRE’s growth. Too many walkers prevent the gang from reaching Morgan’s houseboat, but Shrike’s father turns out to have the necessary coordinates. While they are both stranded on the houseboat, Morgan admits that seven years ago, he had to abandon Mo under identical circumstances.
Morgan is recovered by Madison after assisting Mo in his escape. Madison kills Krennick after he attacks Shirke and emerges from the swamp. June lets Ben kill his sister before expelling him from the PADRE after the gang has persuaded Ben and the prefects to submit. Dwight and Sherry break up after Finch’s death, and Madison intends to go forward with her PADRE plans.
Someone is observed listening to the radio broadcasts coming out of Madison, but they remain anonymous. Morgan accepts the situation, burying Grace at Eastman’s cabin before heading back to Alexandria with Mo in search of Rick Grimes.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 Episode 7 Recap
Just a few more episodes remain till the dreadful end of season 8 of Fear the Walking Dead, which will also serve as the series finale for the whole zombie spinoff. Although the spinoff’s core group of survivors has evolved throughout the course of the show’s run, the original cast of The Walking Dead series has deservedly been given more screen time in the most recent episodes.
On October 22, 2023, the eighth season premiere of Fear the Walking Dead aired with the episode titled “Anton.” Colman Domingo’s Victor Strand, who had been missing since the shocking conclusion of Season 7 of Fear the Walking Dead, made a return appearance in this episode, as did Daniel Sharman’s Troy Otto (the spinoff’s last villain). Fear the Walking Dead will air five more episodes after “Anoton,” bringing the total number of episodes authorized by AMC for the final season to twelve.
