AMC announced plans to get season four of “Fear the Walking Dead” rolling again, starting Sunday, Aug. 12, when the second half of the season will premiere.
“The first half of season four began with one figure huddled around a campfire, and ended with nine,” AMC notes in today’s announcement. “Characters who started their journeys in isolation collided with each other in unexpected ways and found themselves in one of the last places they ever expected to be…together. In the back half of the season they will explore who they are now — as individuals and as part of the greater group — and how they will forge ahead. They will find themselves pitted against new adversaries — human, walker, and even nature itself. Theirs will be a journey wrought with danger, love, heartbreak, loss, and ultimately, hope.”
The announcement adds: “Critics have said ‘Fear’s’ fourth season has ‘completely changed the game,’ ‘… is deserving to be praised as one of the best shows on television, (Comicbook.com.), ‘feels like it’s been given a second life’ (Hypable.com), and ‘has knocked me off the couch’ (TVLine.com), among other critical acclaim.”
