Fear the Walking Dead is based on comic books called Fear the Walking Dead. The first three seasons of this show follow a family in California right as the zombie apocalypse hits. It shows the family trying to navigate the new world of trying to survive. This series actually has one of the recurring characters from the original The Walking Dead crossover into Fear the Walking Dead. The character that crosses over is Morgan Jones.
These two series are generally the same, other than the fact that they take place in two different places, on two different coasts. They originally started out in California, later moving on to Mexico to find people they believe may have survived. Though most of the seasons follow the family from California, in recent seasons it follows Morgan Jones and his journey.
Since Fear the Walking Dead aired, it received some good and some mediocre reviews. The first two seasons received a lower rating than the seasons that follow. Critics state that some of the seasons don’t equal up to the original Walking Dead, and that they are just reusing the material. Though other critics have stated that the cast of this series is absolutely incredible and that the spinoff is more artful than the original series is. Overall reviews have been mixed.
