Fear TWD Season 6 Breaks Early; 2-Hour TWD World Beyond Season Finale

So with this week being a bit "intense" (to say the least) in both in the real world and in The Walking Dead universe, we wanted to take a minute to update you on how AMC's Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead: World Beyond will be wrapping up their respective 2020 runs because both are running a little different than usual. First up, even though Fear TWD is a 16-episode season, November 22's seventh episode of the sixth season "Damage from the Inside" will be the season's midseason finale (one episode earlier than the usual 8/8 splits for 16-episode seasons due to COVID-related production delays).

On the following Sunday, November 29, the first season of TWD: World Beyond comes to an end with a two-episode, two-hour season finale event ("The Deepest Cut" and "In This Life"). In addition, the virtual edition of the Chris Hardwick-hosted Talking Dead will air after both Fear TWD and TWD: World Beyond on November 22 and will return to AMC+ for an exclusive episode on November 29 after TWD: World Beyond. The TWD universe's year wraps up in December with the AMC+-exclusive The Walking Dead Holiday Special.

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 "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.
