Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5 (2019)


Season 5
Fear the Walking Dead

Critics Consensus

Despite delivering some memorable and splatter-filled zombie set-pieces that fans crave, Fear the Walking Dead feels stiff with early-onset rigor mortis in a fifth season that emphasizes altruism over coherent characterization.

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.

Critic Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead Season 5

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Treating the audience like it isn't smart enough to apply logic is not a good move. Fear the Walking Dead threw a lot of logic and rules out the window this season, right down to having a couple of people soaring in a hot air balloon.

Fear the Walking Dead returned for its fifth season with a bang, but there was also an intriguing Rick Grimes Easter egg that may have teased a connection to the wider universe.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Perhaps this new connection to a bigger overarching story will make a once ancillary show more necessary viewing for hardcore fans. Let's just hope this season's new villains turn out to be more interesting than last season's murderous, rambling Martha.

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…

There are major plot developments worth looking forward to.

Jun 18, 2019 | Full Review…

If we're going to watch a spin-off that's becoming centered around expanding the mysteries of "TWD," I'd love to see a bold "Fear" which cleaves away at some of the fat while doing so.

Audience Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5

  • 2d ago
    Okay, I can say that I enjoyed this season, BUT... the writing is clearly full of flaws and the arc from the first 8 episodes could've been told in 2 or 3 episodes. They are stretching this out and I don't like it. After all these years, the showrunners and writers must know that most of the viewers have almost no patience - in this case, me too. It's almost annoying to see how the showrunners are ignoring the fan's backlash and critizism.

    This season was horrible. the writers should be fired.

    This season wasn't good at all...way to much boring ass conversations between the characters also drifted away action wise and story wise into something that's not even int
  • Oct 08, 2019
    AMC seriously needs to change showrunners. It's quite a feat to destroy a show so thoroughly after such an amazing season three.
  • Oct 08, 2019
    The whole season from start to finish was just awful. The degrees of awful varied from one episode to the next but awful across the board. I will not be back for season 6

    Tbh, this is the worst show of all time... I liked every season of walking dead.. Well Season 7-8 had a lot of cringe moments, but even a few of those cringe moments were better than this whole season combined.. Waste of potential.. Lousy showrunners.. End the show..

    É uma temporada com bons conceitos e momentos marcantes, de ótimas conclusões e apresentações de novos personagens mas ainda sim é necessário melhorar o ritmo e focar naquilo que o público-alvo tem interesse de ver, um pouco mais de ação e resolutividade.

    Used to love this show until somewhere in season 4, and this season has totally reversed that into hatred. They've neutered every single character into these pathetic morons that are devoid of all logic. I think the premise of helping people is great for the group, but its come to a point where the characters don't even try to defend themselves, they irrationally fold whenever they're threatened and they put themselves at great risk with little to no reason for it. This season has been so bad that I will NOT watch the 6th, this show has reached a "point of no return" as far as the story-line goes. It's sad to see this show flop so bad like this, it could have been great.

    Just horrible and a blow to the quality of the brand.

    Unfortunately, it's getting more and more "idiotic" by the day...
