Tv Season Info

In Season 5, the group's mission is clear: locate survivors and help make what's left of the world a slightly better place. With dogged determination, Morgan (Lennie James) leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Each character believes that helping others will allow them to make up for the wrongs of their pasts. But trust won?t be easily earned. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when our group finds themselves in uncharted territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears. It is only through facing those fears that the group will discover an entirely new way to live, one that will leave them forever changed.

Whatever is to come with Daniel, Dwight, and the helicopter gang, it's clear that AMC is dedicated to making the various threads of its marquee franchise as interwoven as possible...

The implications of the appearance of the Three Rings Group on Fear the Walking Dead are huge.

Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…

The connection to Rick's future may be built up in huge ways, or it may not even be connected at all.

Fear the Walking Dead's fifth season has gotten off to a rocky start.

Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Fear is at an interesting stage in its lifespan. Hopefully the series will continue on this course for the foreseeable future.

Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the major problems is that there are few great characters left on "Fear TWD."

Jun 18, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…

If the premiere is any indication, Fear the Walking Dead is going to settle into its stride nicely.

Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…

The action doesn't slow down (much) and the mysteries of season 5 continue to unfold.

Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…

As bleak as Fear has been over the last four seasons, this new season is willing to embrace the better, brighter side of human nature.

Jun 18, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There are major plot developments worth looking forward to.

Audience Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5

    After episode 6 of this season I threw in the proverbial white towel. It is just awful! AWFUL. I did not think they could surpass the awful level of season 4 but I have been proven wrong. The writing is abysmal. The attempts at being cheeky simply fall flat. Leave cheeky to syfy channel series - it is their wheelhouse. They know how to do it. Ugh and that damn filter - enough already. I tried to make myself watch the 7th episode on Saturday (via AMC Premier) but I could not bring myself to commit an hour of my day to the series. On Sunday I thought "well it would be good background noise" and even then I could not commit. I watched another episode of Star Trek TNG instead and was completely engrossed. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum need to be cut loose if this show has any hopes of making it out of season 6 "alive" (assuming of course there will be a season 6). As for me....I am done. Now if they would just please send Dwight back to Virginia!!

    It is growing more dreary and listless....time to change up the storyline or merge it with the Walking Dead

    I didn't think it could get worse than last season. Boy I was wrong. And what angers me more is that many people think this is smart writing. Guys... it's not.

    I really like the way this season goes it might have some troubpe on the way but it can get better with time

    This has been really boring and unexciting to say the least. The slow grind to any answers we've been asking for, we have not gotten. Characters this season seem a bit dull and different than last season and that's not a good thing. Ill be shocked to see this show get renewed for a 6th season.

    FTWD has just been getting worse and worse and I don't think this reboot is helping at. all. I'll be damn well surprised if this show is picked up for season 6. It's just boring and has NO purpose this season besides helping kids the entire season. If you wanted to give this season a title, call it Babysitting in the World of the Walking Dead. The only thing that's good is the relationship with John and Dwight. They deserve to be taken back to the original show and not this garbage fire. There's no saving this show now.

    Marginally better than Season 4b, not that's a high bar to meet
  • Jul 02, 2019
    Season 5 would be better suited to Disney Channel than AMC at this point.
  • Jul 01, 2019
    The highly incompetent writers that took over last year continue to shoehorn in crossovers to the main show, TWD, to distract audiences from the fact that the writing is garbage
