It’s the end of the world as we know it. The landscape is changing rapidly, and just about everything is taking a turn for the worse in Fear the Walking Dead. The Walking Dead spinoff follows a blended family doing their best to keep their heads on straight as they journey through the zombie-laden apocalypse. Together, they must learn new skills and adopt new attitudes in their struggle for survival as civilization around them steadily collapses. 

With the show’s fifth season underway, and all hope lost, our heroes must do one thing: try to make the world a better place. This ambitious undertaking is easier said than done, what with the constant threat of flesh-eating zombies lurking around every corner. Morgan Jones leads the pack in Mexico, armed with compassion, humanist ideology, and more importantly, a crew of tenacious zombie hunters. As the rag-tag post-apocalyptic team enters uncharted territory, they must each face their pasts and their fears if they’re going to make it out alive. 

Here’s how to watch Fear the Walking Dead online for free.

Fear the Walking Dead Reviews

What the critics are saying

  • Fear the Walking Dead is, at times, decidedly schlocky, but this time around, there’s a welcome emphasis on fleshing out the motivations and convictions of a new cast of characters who could become potential adversaries down the line. After a strong start, here’s hoping that season 3 doesn’t squander its potential and try to plunder new ground for the sake of newness. Three episodes in and there’s already plenty of promise on show. The hard part now will be keeping it going.” –Edward Love, We Got This Covered
  • “If Fear is a project with some noble intentions, it has uneven execution, with the prequel nature of it hurting as much as helping.” –Alan Sepinwall, Uproxx

YouTube TV is a great solution for families because one subscription can add up to six accounts, and each account comes with unlimited cloud DVR.
