Sunday night saw the finale of AMC's Fear The Walking Dead Season One, and it didn't disappoint. The Pilot episode brought in a whopping 13.96 million viewers, breaking cable records! though the figures have dropped slightly over the course of the series, it's nothing to worry about.... it won't get cancelled!
The finale, titled The Good Man is without a doubt the best episode in the season. Many people were bothered by the lack of "Walkers" throughout the series, if you've watch this episode... you won't be filled with anger! It's well and truly an apocalyptic world now.
Showrunner Dave Erickson talks with The Hollywood Reporter about what to expect from the 15-episode second season.
We'll pick up in a more accelerated pace when we go in to the season. We've learned a lot: our characters in their apocalyptic education have learned what walkers are. Even Travis has had to shed some of his humanity for the first time, which was his great struggle. We'll have more of a shorthand going in to season two. There are still things for them to discover. They haven't had the benefit of the CDC download. They know the city has fallen and know things are incredibly bad and they know that this is happening in other states and potentially other countries but they haven't had anybody say to them, "The world is over; this is our extinction event." That's something they'll have to process as they move through season two as well. If I were them, I'd be thinking that there has to be some place to go. Maybe it's an island. I don't know. But there's got to be a place where this contagion hasn't touched. But we the audience know that's not true and that will be the next blow that they suffer.
