Although Fear the Walking Dead has yet to return for the second half of its fourth season, it is renewal time over at AMC, who announced at the TCA Summer Press that the series has been picked up for a fifth season. This comes as no real surprise after Angela Kang was tapped as the new showrunner for The Walking Dead with previous showrunner Scott Gimple being promoted to a creative role that oversees both shows and the AMC Walking Dead universe as a whole.
There is no doubt that the network is in it for the long haul after drastically reinventing the series this past season, moving Lennie James' character Morgan Jones over to this show from the main series and killing off most of Fear's original cast. The show's new style and cast were on full display in the official San Diego Comic-Con trailer for the remaining half of this season.
Fear the Walking Dead returns with another 8 episodes on August 12th.
