Tv Season Info

Season six of Fear the Walking Dead explores what has become of the unlikely family once united by a mission to help those in need. After being torn apart by Virginia (Colby Minifie) and her Pioneers, the group is now dispersed across her far-reaching settlements. Morgan's (Lennie James) last message at the end of season five implored the group to "Just Live" and this season we'll see what that means to each of them. Some will find the stability and opportunity within Virginia's communities to be intriguing, some will sink into darkness, while others will fight back against what has been forced upon them. Life behind Virginia's walls will test each and every one of them in different ways, forcing them to define who they are in this new world.

Critic Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead Season 6

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (0)

After an aimless and often lethargic Season 5, Fear the Walking Dead continues its dramatic 180 in quality with two more compelling and energizing episodes that are among the best ever produced by the Walking Dead spin-off.

Mar 30, 2021 | Full Review…

The problem is once the zombies have been decapitated or bounce off big rigs, there's not much left. The writers quickly run out of ideas.

Nov 13, 2020 | Full Review…

I will hold out hope, however fragile, that Season 6 will continue to be as good as the season premiere. I worry that I'm judging it too much as a comparison to the last two seasons which set such absurdly low bars for quality.

Oct 13, 2020 | Full Review…

Based on the three episodes of the season provided for review, at least, Fear the Walking Dead is now a surprisingly fun anthology of short, Western-inspired stories.

Oct 13, 2020 | Full Review…

The biggest compliment I can give to Fear the Walking Dead is that it likes to switch things up. It tries out new storytelling mechanics, more so than The Walking Dead. But is that really a compliment? I'm not so sure.

Oct 13, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Fear the Walking Dead opened its sixth season strong with a violent, hyper-focused Morgan "rebirth" story that got our crossover champ back in the (literal) saddle - and with a whole new look, purpose, and weapon.

Oct 12, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

I'm not going to count my chickens or anything, because Fear has delivered decent episodes in the past only to devolve once again, but this week's Morgan-centered episode was Fear at its best.

Oct 12, 2020 | Full Review…

Fear the Walking Dead has flirted with Western elements before, but season 6 is completely Western in tone and scope, and it works, turning out the show's best season in a while.

Audience Reviews for Fear the Walking Dead: Season 6

  • 4d ago
    This season started good, I was hoping that it will continue in this good way and that the new showrunners of fear the walking dead has learned from their mistakes. But like I expected, this season continued in a very terrible way. Making a story that doesn't make sense and continue to make the same mistakes these showrunners always do. What a disappointing season this is, I mean its better than seasons 4 and 5, but its still very terrible. What can save this show now? The answer is nothing. I used to like fear the walking dead when it was great in its first three seasons, but now the story is completely different and doesn't make sense in any way. Therefore, its another terrible season of fear, so I don't have any hope that season 7 would be better. What a shame.

    Really good season sans the overabundance of the 1st person video stories of the past season.

    The season started out okay, but it quickly became some of the worst television I've ever endured in my life. Terrible writing. This show is packed with talented acting. What are they supposed to do with such poor story telling? The writing does not even cohesively exist in a timeline that makes sense. We're constantly thrown into situations where it feels like we missed an episode or two. Forced plots. Forced end results. Such a shame for a show that I once enjoyed.

    After that the hot mess that season 5 was, things could hardly go any worse, so season 6 is better... But the show runners really seem to struggle to come up with good stories for each character. Most of the cast is just there... Fear became the Morgan Jones show and Morgan is not a good lead for an apocalyptic setting... Sticking with "Good guy Morgan" is bringing nothing to the table. Make him go to the dark side or kill him off. It is also not helping that Fear is not sticking an working with it's "season main villains" and goes through them like others are changing their underwear. I personally would like to see Alycia Debnam-Carey as the new main lead, something that should have happened a long time ago. The best episodes of season 6 so far were the ones that focused on Debnam-Careys character.

    I really do enjoy this show. This season has been heartbreaking for the major character loss (probably the best character in the series), but so goes Walking Dead properties. The characters are the heartbeat of this series; the original series has gotten away from that in a jumped-the-shark sort of way, even though I still watch it.
  • May 19, 2021
    Way better than the Walking Dead. It is like they have picked the best parts of best episodes and storylines of the Walking dead and found the magic of them. It took a couple of seasons though. I was crushed to see John Dorey go. Best characters of the show.
  • May 11, 2021
    Best season in years of Fear The Walking Dead.
  • May 06, 2021
    What an explosive season, who would have thought that?!
  • May 04, 2021
    I always considered FTWD as the poor cousin of TWD, it was good but that "something" always seemed to be missing. The last two seasons have definitely had more soul and the current season is on par with the best TWD seasons, the good old days of bad-assness, suspense and substance, (S10 has been a huge disappointment). The characters in FTWD have evolved from wishy-washy flip floppers to chunky solid personalities with depth and purpose. I am enjoying this season way more than the last few TWD.
