Critic Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead Season 4

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Based on the first two hours, the program does feel somewhat invigorated by the new blood.

Apr 13, 2018 | Full Review…

The main feeling you get from Fear's new season is that the mainline Dead show has swallowed Fear, like a snake eating its own tail, or a zombie biting its own foot.

Apr 4, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

If it is any indication, fans of the Walking Dead shows will still find plenty to munch on as season four of Fear the Walking Dead carries on.

Aug 24, 2018 | Full Review…

By moving Morgan Jones over from The Walking Dead, the prequel series was able to establish a narrative through line... and to introduce new, exciting characters who could take the story in a whole new direction.

Aug 13, 2018 | Full Review…

At the start of its fourth season's second half, Fear the Walking Dead sets a higher bar in terms of the degree of difficulty facing the show's ever-changing roster of characters in their quest to survive.

Aug 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It's gone from being an adequate stopgap between seasons of The Walking Dead to a show that's as good or arguably even better than the one from which it was spun off.

Audience Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead: Season 4

    Season 4 is full of really bad writing. When you have a terrific cast, it's a horrible idea to give them scripts that don't show them to shine. I loved the first three seasons, but this one is cringeworthy.

    What just happened to this show, it was getting better and better each season, and the conflicts between the people started to get more interesting until this season came out. This is one of the worst seasons I have ever watched. The whole story just changed in this season. It was a story about a family surviving the apocalypse, now its Morgan and his friends being stupid. No person should watch this bad season.

    I had been enjoying this up until now. The cast continues to be strong, but what a shame to give them these scripts. It is remarkably sloppy writing and story telling at this point.

    Pra mim até agora a melhor de fear , e um mérito dessa temporada de fear em relação as outras é que ela conseguiu mudar minha opinião em relação ao Morgan , por que eu não dele na serie principal , mas depois que ele entrou para fear é um dos meus personagens favoritos

    Wow, i am actually disgusted with this season. After the new whack a$$ showrunners took over, I KNEW it was going to be a dumpster fire & it sure was. I recently got into Fear about a month ago and quickly fell love bc of the different vibe from TWD as TWD imo became trash when S8 premiered and i stopped walking. I missed a "Zombie" show and so i decided to check on it's spin off. I LOVED the different direction, the vibe of it all & it was so fresh and fun & way more intense imo. The Clarke family had seen some darkness already & was already kind of used to living in a life like that. They adapted fairly quickly which was fun to witness. I loved seeing a female "Rick" counterpart in Madison and the representation they had in the first 3 seasons. The whole second season was filmed and based in Mexico. S3 was probably one of the best seasons on TWD universe i've ever seen. Between them going to the ranch & Madison finally coming into her own without Travis, was beautiful to watch. That scene with Alicia in the bunker was ICONIC. She proved then, she was her mothers daughter. She kicked some zombie TAIL! So many great moments, then S4 happened & i was like "What the crap is this?" they quickly invorgorated us with new blood & people and just jammed them down our throats. Instead of starting with The Clarkes & having them meet new people down the way and then if they wanted to slowly phase them out, that would've been better to see. But you can clearly see the showrunners wanted to seperate anything & everything the old one has built by killing off TWO main characters from S1 within a few short episodes from each other. As far as i tell people when they ask me what i think. I say Fear was over after S3, because S4-on is a different show. It's a reboot. It's basically TWD just in a different location. What i enjoyed of fear was that it seperated itself from the main counterpart. They did what i HATED TWD wouldn't do, and they still rememebred the Zombies as the main threat. We didn't go like half a season without seeing a single zombie. It was nice. I hope the showrunners or the writers read these reviews.

    Well, the whole series is an embarassing amount of poor acting, boring characters without identity, ethic, charisma. I really hated the well represented sickening, hypocrite and bigot american family developed by the authors for the rubbishy actress Kim Dickens. She and the other family members had to be eliminated in the first season...By the way, after the fortunate departure of Mom and son, the show finally took a breath of fresh air.

    How can you destroy such a great filmed season with a Morgan and his shitty philosophy that was already annoying in Walking Dead
