Cancellation Watch: Fear the Walking Dead Returns Strong for its Fourth Season

Cancellation Watch: Fear the Walking Dead Returns Strong for its Fourth Season

AMC's "The Walking Dead" closed out the season with its lowest-rated finale since the show's inaugural campaign in 2010, scaring up 7.92 million viewers and a 3.4 rating in the advertiser-coveted demographic, which works out to around 4.4 million adults 18 to 49. Up 18% in total viewership from the April 8 penultimate "Worth" episode, TWD's Season 8 ender snared 4.4 million in the 18-49 demo it has so long dominated to hit a 3.4 rating. Next week's numbers will determine how numerous curious onlookers following Morgan's transition to Fear the Walking Dead will stick around, but for now that one is off to a good start.

As much as ratings erosion is about as inevitable and inescapable as the Big Dirt Nap, fans of "The Walking Dead" have no reason to fear that it's in any danger of disappearing from AMC's schedule.

And that was down from Season 6's 14.2 mil, which was in turn down from season 5's series high of 15.8 million live viewers - TWICE what Sunday's episode got. First, the season premiere in October, 2017 earned the lowest premiere ratings for the show since Season Three. Even taking into account the fans who might have ventured out of Sunday to watch the season ender in cinemas on the big screen, that's a 42% drop in the demo from the Season 7 "The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life" finale of a year ago.

Because The Walking Dead fans are among the most passionate and dedicated groups in the world, I know that will be the case for those wondering when The Walking Dead season 9 will premiere.

As a big Netflix watcher, as soon as I finish a season, I have to look up when there will be a new season so I can binge-watch another batch of episodes. Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead is on pace to be the most compelling and most cohesive season of the show yet.
