Return to Robert Kirkman’s Walking Dead world as season 6 of Fear the Walking Dead returns for another instalment of this The Walking Dead spin-off. First broadcast in 2015, last week Fear the Walking Dead made its mid-season return, continuing the post-apocalyptic horror and offering up a gruesome and gripping second half to season six. Barricade the door, be prepared to cower behind a cushion, and dim the lights as we explain how to watch Fear the Walking Dead season 6 online and stream these spine-tinging new episodes from where you are around the globe.
*Warning: potential Fear the Walking Dead spoilers lie ahead*
Season 5 concluded with Morgan encroached on by zombies after being mortally wounded, and his post-apocalyptic brethren divided up between various settlements by Virginia (Colby Minifie), leader of the Pioneers. Did Morgan somehow survive the walkers? Or, as images of him with bloodshot eyes suggest, has he succumbed to the undead plague?
With the group separated – including the newly married John and June, Victor, Althea, and Alicia – FTWD takes on more of an anthology format, with each episode focusing on one or two characters and the precarious circumstances they’ve found themselves in. Christine Evangelista as Sherry becomes the third Walking Dead alum to cross over into the FTWD world, while Zoe Colletti joins the main cast as Dakota, Virginia’s younger sister.
This latest season promises high-stakes, action-packed drama between walkers and humans, the Pioneers and Morgan’s motley crew. Just keep reading to find out how you can watch Fear the Walking Dead season 6 online and enjoy this terrifying show from anywhere.
