Tv Season Info

In the second season of "Fear the Walking Dead," the family that Madison fought to keep together falls apart due to personal conflicts and the destruction they left in their wake on their escape to Tijuana, Mexico. Nick ventures off on his own and stumbles upon a community whose leader is seemingly immune to the zombie plague. Travis fights with Madison over her lack of concern for Chris' mental stability and breaks away, taking Chris with him. Ofelia makes her way back to the U.S. border, leaving the rest of the group to forge an alliance with survivors marooned in a hotel. Kim Dickens returns to the show as Madison Clark, joined by Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, and Ruben Blades as Daniel. "Fear the Walking Dead" also stars Colman Domingo as Strand, Michelle Ang as Alex, Danay Garcia as Luciana, and Paul Calderon as Alejandro.

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (10)

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.

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

December 14, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.
