Living in the same universe as The Walking Dead, Fear The Walking Dead is a gritty drama that explores the onset of the undead apocalypse through the lens of a fractured family. Set in a city where people come to escape, shield secrets, and bury their pasts, a mysterious outbreak threatens to disrupt what little stability high school guidance counselor Madison Clark and English teacher Travis Manawa have managed to assemble. The everyday pressure of blending two families while dealing with resentful, escapist, and strung out children takes a back seat when society begins to break down. A forced evolution, a necessary survival of the fittest takes hold, and our dysfunctional family must either reinvent themselves or embrace their darker histories.

  • Ned Ehrbar

    Fear the Walking Dead pulls off a great feat in prequel land: using that nagging sense of inevitability to its advantage. It shouldn’t work, but it totally does.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Fear the Walking Dead is a wonderfully refreshing reboot that reminds viewers of the exciting, moving, and dramatic potential The Walking Dead had in its first season - a potential the show has all but squandered.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Joanne Ostrow

    Even if zombies aren’t your cup of TV, there is plenty to appreciate about the construction of Fear the Walking Dead.

    Denver Post Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    Fear The Walking Dead, like The Walking Dead before it, does a stupendous job of establishing an eerie tone. (Hopefully it will do a better job than its forebear at maintaining that tone without forsaking character development and inventive plots.) Early on, there are the requisite B-movie beats where camera angles, pacing, and the soundtrack combine to promise very zombie developments that, psych, don’t arrive (until they do), but the real chills come from well-chosen details.

    Slate Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    It’s off to a very good start. Dickens and Curtis and the actors playing their kids (Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, and Lorenzo James Henric) are terrific.... Fear The Walking Dead has art on its addled mind, and is all the better for it.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    They also don’t know what’s happening back East, so we don’t start with any crossovers or even cross-references. There’s just the uneasy sense that something is wrong, which for TV drama purposes means something is right.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    Fear the Walking Dead is heavy on spooky atmosphere and light on zombies (they’ll be known as “infected,” not walkers, we’re told) in the early going.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Zach Hollwedel

    It's engaging, it's addicting, and it makes for damn lively Sunday night viewing.

    Under The Radar Full Review
  • Tom Long

    The slow burn approach actually works nicely, assuming you can calm your appetite for immediate destruction.

    The Detroit News Full Review
  • Elisabeth Vincentelli

    The first two episodes are creepily suspenseful--they’re great examples of how effective a slow pace and a moody atmosphere can be.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Noel Murray

    Since Fear The Walking Dead isn’t featuring any pre-end-times people or places from the other show, it’s missing a sense of irony that might’ve made its early scenes more meaningful.... What makes Fear The Walking Dead so promising is that it doesn’t require any knowledge of The Walking Dead to jump in and watch.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Some viewers will be eager to get to more zombies, but the quicker the show does this, the less unique it will be. Episode two moves the plot forward faster--more characters begin to understand what “the infected” are capable of--which will appeal to those craving zombies, but is sure to disappoint anyone wanting this show to shamble its own way.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Mark Dawidziak

    Much of this takes a by-the-numbers approach, but the cast is strong, and you get the feeling that the second episode is more indicative of where the show is heading.

    Cleveland Plain Dealer Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    You won't have to go far into the 90-minute premiere of Fear to catch sight of a dead-eyed face-chewer, but the first two episodes are more about the gradual realization that there's something going around that no one's really equipped to handle.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Todd VanDerWerff

    In Curtis and Dickens it has two of the best performers the franchise has ever featured, and it knows how to use them. Both are able to balance the sense that they're simultaneously terrified for the state of society and worried they won't be able to save their kids from becoming zombie chow.... Fear probably can't do the slow-pocalypse thing forever, but for a first season of just six episodes, it might be just about right. Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    Production values are strong and the entire cast is effective, although they’re not given quite enough to do in episode one. The second episode (only two were available for press) is notably better as Dickens and Curtis get in on the panic and are allowed more challenging beats as actors. I think some people will be put off by the pace of Fear. Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    The new series is compelling in its own way, but it will take a while to see how it congeals. Or, more aptly, if it coagulates.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Fear the Walking Dead is slow and a little bit dull.... Now the good. Fear's opening act is a strong one. There's a nice overall build, too, particularly during the second episode.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    If Fear is a project with some noble intentions, it has uneven execution, with the prequel nature of it hurting as much as helping.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Melissa Maerz

    The best zombie stories are really about cultural anxieties, and the second episode taps into them better, with a police-brutality subplot that could lead somewhere interesting.... [But] It keeps repeating the same old tropes, expecting to give us a different kind of zombie show.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ted Pigeon

    Shades of new angles to the zombie genre fleetingly emerge, but too often they're smothered by the writers' slavish devotion to their own established norms.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Sara Smith

    A serviceable but less-than-stellar spinoff of AMC’s hit series “The Walking Dead.”

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    Credibility aside, the slow disintegration plays out in satisfyingly tense if formulaic fashion.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Kristi Turnquist

    Fear has some immediate strengths, as well as weaknesses that could drag down the proceedings considerably.

    The Oregonian Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    The 90-minute first episode and the hour-long second episode are, while not actually boring, certainly less magnetic than the original.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    A second episode, fortunately, improves matters considerably, mostly in charting how the uncertainty of what’s happening begins to break down society, from civil unrest to rampant fear of the unknown. This hour points in a more promising direction, although as yet the characters still seem a little malnourished, particularly compared with the original.

    Variety Full Review
  • Vicki Hyman

    There's a minimum of gore--these walkers are slow and more intact at this stage--though there are a few zombie fake-outs. But instead of building tension these sequences merely underscore the tedium.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Ben Travers

    Fear the Walking Dead is far less satisfying from a creative standpoint than Vince Gilligan's prequel offering. It's neither as original or relevant, and it certainly failed to break free of any formal restrictions. Perhaps most importantly, though, the new series lacks a beating heart.

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Fear the Walking Dead probably is in no danger of becoming and out-and-out flop in its first season. But its opening episode is appreciably less gripping than the 2010 unveiling of the smash hit original.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Fear the Walking Dead takes Los Angeles, and itself, very seriously. So seriously that in the first two episodes it is sometimes difficult not to laugh. At the general cluelessness of the characters, at the intensity of the local "realism," at the heavy-handedness of the Cinematic Symbols of Foreboding (Beware the Bounce House) and the sight of so many fine actors trying to keep their feet in a promising but initially borderline-absurd narrative.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Alan Zilberman

    Unfortunately, the first episode is workmanlike to a fault: It sets up its characters, throwing in some forgettable, tedious character moments so we can care about them. Fear the Walking Dead doesn’t really kick into gear until Travis and Madison realize that the world has gone wrong.

    Las Vegas Weekly Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Fear resorts to the dumbest of jump scares and runs in circles. You’ll get impatient for a walker to come chomping by. You might be disappointed when one does. An action sequence that caps the extended premiere is choppy and amateurishly directed.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    Unfortunately, despite strong performances, particularly from Dickens and Curtis, it's hard to care what happens to anyone, or to listen to the dialogue and not pray for some kind of bear attack.
