Ratings wont stop Fear The Walking Dead Season 4, maybe behind the scenes changes will? Showrunner Dave Erickson will step down as showrunner on the AMC spinoff series after Season 3 to focus on new projects for the cabler.
Erickson will remain an exec producer on the series.
Joel Stillerman, president of original programming/development for AMC and SundanceTV, said:
“We’re beyond grateful for Dave’s amazing work on the first three seasons of Fear the Walking Dead. With Dave as showrunner, the series fulfilled its creative promise to expand the ‘Walking Dead’ universe in a way that was totally unique from the original series, and has gone on to become the number two drama series in ad-supported cable, behind only The Walking Dead. We are also incredibly excited that Dave has chosen to stay in the AMC family to pursue his next passion project. We look forward to many more successful collaborations.”
Is this the beginning of the end for Fear The Walking Dead? It seems unlikely barring a collapse, but it wont stop the reaper’s pursuit.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Fear The Walking Dead Season 4…
