Critic Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead Season 2

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (11)

After sifting through the first two episodes of Season 2, it's clear taking to the ocean is the only change the writers were willing to make.

A not-at-all-bad new season, that also poses this new question - can walkers swim too?

Top Critic

Fear the Walking Dead is already doing a better job than the original of examining how civilization-rather than a small band of survivors-reacts to and evolves during the crisis.

Will Fear the Walking Dead simply become The Walking Dead: Left Coast? Thankfully - particularly given The Walking Dead's creatively bankrupt finale - no.

There simply is no risk and not enough to keep viewers interested. [Full Review in Spanish]

The show's second season improves the spinoff (from more famous elder sibling The Walking Dead) in just about every respect... [Blu-ray]

The striking camerawork and offbeat location choices (boat, desert, hotel, etc) go a long way towards setting the show apart visually, though fans can rest easy that the gory moments are still as nasty and inventive as ever.

Sure, the name brand all but guarantees advertiser-friendly ratings -- but why bother if all we're getting is a soggier version of The Walking Dead?

Oct 25, 2016 | Full Review…

Like Fear the Walking Dead, it's too frustrating to be great, but too eccentric to be dismissed.

Apr 11, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The lost at sea premise should lead to a fascinating and fresh season, but its season premiere was anchored by more of the same frustrating and questionable character logic.
