'Fear the Walking Dead' Renewed by AMC for Season 4

Gimple has followed Robert Kirkman's source material in The Walking Dead comics more closely than either of the showrunners who came before him.

"The Walking Dead" Season 7 finale sort of failed to impress fans and viewers alike but Lincoln insists that he can't wait for the new episode to be revealed.

Much of the problem with Fear is that it has not only failed to distinguish itself from The Walking Dead, but there haven't yet been any break-out characters on the series, and while the storytelling has improved, the series on its best days isn't as good as The Walking Dead on its worse.

Proving that two different series can exist in the same universe and provide their own compelling storylines, fans of "Fear" have driven network AMC to renew the series for a fourth season.

"Fear the Walking Dead" hasn't been as big of a ratings blockbuster as the original, with October's Season 2 finale drawing just 3 million viewers.

The series stars Kim Dickens, Cliff Curtis, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Frank Dillane and as TheWrap exclusively reported, "Teen Wolf" alum Daniel Sharman.

"We are thrilled to be joining Fear The Walking Dead and couldn't be more excited to work alongside the wonderful team at AMC on this show", added Chambliss and Goldberg in their own joint statement. Yet, the incoming co-captains will be joined by an interesting overseer in The Walking Dead mothership showrunner Scott M. Gimple, who additionally boards Fear the Walking as an executive producer. Dayton Callie, Daniel Sharman, Sam Underground and Lissandra Tena have signed on as series regulars for season 3. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
