Telly’s Take

Will AMC cancel or renew Fear the Walking Dead for season six? Cancellation is unlikely, as it remains the cable channel’s second-highest rated series. I would also be surprised were it to end without a season-long “final season” send-off. This is a vital franchise for AMC — which has ordered another spin-off — so I expect them to handle it (and their relationship with producers) with care. Since this is just speculation, I will keep an eye on the Nielsen ratings, so subscribe for free Fear the Walking Dead cancellation or renewal alerts.
