With all the talk about future spinoffs in the world of The Walking Dead, fans of the first spinoff, Fear the Walking Dead, are excited to see what happens next. When will AMC start showing season 8 of Fear the Walking Dead?
People didn’t care much for the seventh season, but the showrunners say they will change things for the next season. This season, filming went from Austin, Texas, to Savannah, Georgia, because Georgia has better tax incentives. This gives the people in charge of the show a chance to change it again. Fear the Walking Dead has changed in the past as they traveled through the US and Mexico, and new groups have come and gone during that time.
Since the fourth season of Fear the Walking Dead, Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have been responsible for the show. Some fans thought AMC would switch showrunners for the next season, but that won’t happen. The same two people will be in charge for season 8.
Fear The Walking Dead Season 8 Release Date
Fear the Walking Dead started filming season 8 in 2022. AMC recently revealed that the first part of season 8 would premiere on May 14, 2023. During this season, the story will jump ahead seven years. With this news, it was also said that season 8 would be the show’s last season.
