Last season, Fear the Walking Dead explored a blended family who watched a burning, dead city as they traversed a devastated Los Angeles. The season ended with Madison (Kim Dickens), Travis (Cliff Curtis) and their extended family taking temporary shelter in Strand's (Colman Domingo) gated estate overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
As civil unrest continued to grow and the dead took over Los Angeles, Strand prepared to escape to "Abigail," his large yacht moored offshore.
In Season 2, the group aboard the Abigail is unaware of the true breadth and depth of the apocalypse that surrounds them; they assume there is still a chance that some city, state, or nation might be unaffected - some place that the Infection has not reached.
But as Operation Cobalt goes into full effect, the military bombs the Southland to cleanse it of the Infected, driving the Dead toward the sea.
As Madison, Travis, Daniel, and their grieving families head for ports unknown, they will discover that the water may be no safer than land.
Fear the Walking Dead stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Ruben Blades as Daniel, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris and Colman Domingo as Strand.
The series is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and is produced by AMC Studios.
Season 2 consists of 15 episodes, split into two parts. The first part consists of seven episodes and the second of eight. The first seven episodes aired on AMC Africa from 11 April to 23 May, 2016; the second half of the season did not air as the channel was discontinued in October 2016. When new channel SundanceTV replaced AMC Africa in June 2017, the series began broadcasting from Season 1, including the whole of Season 2.
