The first half of “Fear The Walking Dead” Season 2 just ended. But fans are already speculating about the season’s second half. No one has ever been safe on the show, but will Nick experience a drastic change when the show comes back in August? Will he really turn into a walker in the show’s next episode?

According to, Nick Clark will not turn into a zombie anytime soon. However, fans might still have a reason to worry about him for the rest of the season.

The season’s first half wrapped up with the group more “fragmented” than ever. The plantation has been overrun with walkers. Strand, along with Nick’s mother and sister, decided to leave their safe space. But Nick stayed behind. If is proven correct, he might even have to go through the rest of the season alone. Or rather, he would have to be content with having no one but the undead as company.

Will he be able to blend in with the walkers? Will he make it through the rest of the season? Will he ever rejoin the rest of the survivors again? Fans will have to wait for the AMC hit to return to find out.

Meanwhile, executive producer Dave Erickson recently addressed some of the criticisms the show has received since it first began its run. It is notable that “Fear The Walking Dead” is a spin-off of “The Walking Dead.” Some critics just could not help comparing the two dramas.

“That has been one of the challenges of the show,” Erickson told TVLine. “The Walking Dead has a huge fan base to whom we are incredibly grateful. We obviously want to deliver a story that everybody loves. But at the same time, we wanted to make sure that our characters didn’t embrace the tropes [of the genre] as readily as characters in say, a zombie movie.”

Will the series ever move past “The Walking Dead’s” shadow? That remains to be seen. One thing’s for certain, though. The timelines of the two shows are about to converge soon.

“Fear The Walking Dead” Season 2 will return August 21st on AMC.
