Home Television Exclusive: Zombie Apocalypse as “Fear the Walking Dead” Filming Finale, Wrapping Ending...

The era of Zombies is over at AMC. Or as the real Zombies sang, “it’s the time of the season” for a finale.

Sources tell me “Fear the Walking Dead,” the spin off of “The Walking Dead,” will follow the mothership show and wrap its run with its next season, number 8. “The Walking Dead” itself is ending with its next season, number 11. “FTWD” is filming the ending now.

Both shows have had huge declines in ratings. “Fear the Walking Dead” wrapped season 7 last June down 31% in overall audience and 46.77% in the key demo. The final episode had only 710,000 viewers.

The whole fervor for these shows is long gone. Plans for separate movie spin offs have been scaled way back, too.

For more than a decade AMC has feasted on its audience with this stuff. But all things must come to an end. Maybe AMC can get back to quality shows again like “Mad Men” but it’s unlikely.

Share and Enjoy !
