What we know about Fear the Walking Dead season 4, including latest news, release date, cast, and more!
Fear the Walking Dead season 4 is happening, folks! The renewal news comes with the intriguing caveat of a shakeup in the showrunner slot. In late March, it was revealed that the spinoff series’ current showrunner Dave Erickson will step down upon the conclusion of Season 3’s airings.
