AMC has set a return date for the network’s fan favorite original series “Fear the Walking Dead”. The popular series will return for the second half of season two on Sunday, August 21st. Fear the Walking Dead season 2 is already killing it with fans, which have propelled the series to the top of the charts on AMC and social-media interactions.

The premiere date was announced during last night’s “Talking Dead” following the mid-season finale. The second half will consist of eight episodes, so clear your schedule and set those reminders.

The season two opener delivered 8.8 million viewers including 5.7 million adults 25-54 and 5.3 million adults 18-49 in live+3 ratings, making “Fear the Walking Dead” the #2 show on cable (behind only “The Walking Dead”) and the #7 show in all of television – cable and broadcast – among adults 18-49 this television season.

As “Fear The Walking Dead” embarks on the second half of season two, the Clark, Manawa and Salazar families fracture. The events that took place at the Abigail compound have set all of our heroes adrift. Now they must forge their own paths to survive.

“Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris and Colman Domingo as Strand.
