Watching Los Angeles crumble through the eyes of our characters and seeing each make decisions and try to figure out the rules of their new world – it’s fresh, eerie and compelling and we’re all in for the ride,” said Charlie Collier, president of AMC, SundanceTV and AMC Studios in a statement.

The network seems thrilled after the show’s season two premiere on Sunday, which drew 8.8 million viewers (Nielsen Live+3 ratings) and also announced that it had renewed the live aftershow, Talking Dead: Fear, hosted by Chris Hardwick, which follows all new episodes of Fear The Walking Dead.

A spin-off from the original series based on the popular Robert Kirkman comic books, Fear the Walking Dead is set in Los Angeles at the onset of the outbreak. After a hectic 6 episodes for a season one, season two began with the California survivors fleeing on a yacht.

Fear stars Cliff Curtis, Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Mercedes Mason, Lorenzo James Henrie, Ruben Blades, Colman Domingo and Michelle Ang.

Season 2 will have 15 episodes airing through May and into June.
