Fear the Walking Dead show runners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have reimagined several of the show’s final scenes and episodes since taking over for co-creator Dave Erickson in Season 4.AMC announced at the Television Critics Association’s winter media briefing that the first Walking Dead spin-off, which has been running for eight years and 113 episodes, will end with the upcoming season. Fear’s eighth and final season, which consists of 12 episodes, will be split into two parts when it debuts on May 14 on AMC and AMC+. Following the November 2022 season finale of The Walking Dead, the first block of six episodes will air.
The final season premiered on May 14, and episodes 802, 804, 805, and 808 were written in cooperation, according to Writers Guild of America West records, by Chambliss and Goldberg. Additional writers include Calaya Michelle Stallworth and Justin Boyd from Season 7 and Nazrin Choudhury, who served as co-executive producers of Fear seasons 6 and 7. There are others, like David Leslie Johnson-Goldrick. Author of films like DC’s Aquaman and The Conjuring 2 and a veteran of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, David Johnson is also a fan of zombies. The Key and Handle With Care from Season 6 with Ashley Cardiff, as well as “Breathe With Me,” “Ofelia,” and “Divine Providence” from Season 7, are the most recent episodes of Fear for which Johnson has received credit.
Fear’s seventh season saw the addition of Stallworth, a staff writer on Netflix’s short-lived zombie comedy Boyd and Daybreak, who is an executive story editor on the post-apocalyptic fantasy series Sweet Tooth. Along with Choudhury, Stallworth co-wrote “Mourning Cloak,” which served as Althea’s Maggie Grace swan song. Both “Sonny Boy” and “Till Death,” which saw the exit of John Dorie Sr. Keith Carradine, were co-written by Boyd and Cardiff. A seven-year time jump will age up Morgan’s daughter Zoey Merchant, with the island-dwelling survivors living under PADRE’s cynical rule in Season 8, which Chambliss and Goldberg have dubbed a “reinvention” after placing Season 7 against the background of the nuclear-zombie apocalypse.
