Fear the Walking Dead season 6 will air on October 11 on AMC in the US. UK Fans only have to wait one more day until the UK release on October 12. Although the official trailer originally claimed we could expect to see the new season this summer, the coronavirus pandemic has pushed the date all the way to autumn.
Important: We only recommend using official sources to watch Fear the Walking Dead. This not only guarantees that you’re getting the highest possible quality video, but also helps support the people who make the show possible. As a bonus, there’s no chance of having the stream you’re watching taken offline this way, either.
Fear the Walking Dead season 6 will only be shown on region-locked streaming services. If you’re traveling abroad and want to watch on your services from back home, you’ll have to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN).
How to live stream Fear the Walking Dead online from abroad
New to VPNs? Don’t worry: they’re really quite simple to use. Below is our step-by-step guide on how to unblock and stream Fear the Walking Dead from anywhere in the world.
Here’s how to watch Fear the Walking Dead Season 6 online from anywhere:
- Decide which service you’d like to use. We recommend ExpressVPN but NordVPN and CyberGhost are both strong low-cost options.
- Download the app and install it on any device you use to stream. Most providers allow five simultaneous connections at once, but this varies from one VPN to another.
- Log in and connect to a server in your home country. An American server, for example, will get you a US IP address and allow you to access US streaming services abroad.
- Visit your chosen streaming platform and create an account (or log in if you already have one). Note that some services require a local payment method to sign up.
- Now, play a video. You should find that it begins right away. If you’re having issues, clear your browser’s cookies and try again.
Fear the Walking Dead will air live, so we recommend spending a few minutes making sure your VPN works properly before the premiere. If you run into any problems, contact your VPN’s support team for assistance.
How to watch Fear the Walking Dead season 6 on US TV
AMC helps produce The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead, and has exclusive broadcasting rights to these shows in the US. If your cable TV subscription already includes AMC, you can log into the website and watch online at no extra cost.
It’s also possible to stream Fear the Walking Dead online without cable since AMC lets users log in with a Hulu, fuboTV, or YouTube TV account. These services all offer a free trial, but since prior seasons have run for several months, eventually, you’ll have to commit to one service. Hulu is the least expensive option, costing just $5.99 USD per month, and conveniently, seasons 1–5 are included in its on-demand library.
All of these services are region-locked, meaning they can’t normally be accessed outside of the US. With a VPN, though, unblocking them is easy. ExpressVPN offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, allowing you to try it risk-free. If you’re unimpressed, just cancel for a full refund.
Where else can I watch Fear the Walking Dead online?
This show has a huge international fanbase and can be watched online in quite a few countries. Here’s how to stream Fear the Walking Dead where you are:
Traditionally, new episodes of Fear the Walking Dead have aired simultaneously in the UK and US. This does mean that British fans can expect some late nights, though, with new episodes premiering at around 2 AM BST.
Unfortunately, AMC is only available on BT TV, so if you’re with a different cable provider (or simply don’t have cable), you won’t be able to watch season 6 live. There are no online-only plans either, which is disappointing but true to form for BT.
At the moment, the first four seasons are included with Amazon Prime Video, and the fifth is available for purchase (£2.49 per episode or £12.99 for the whole series). This makes it very likely that season six will be added to the platform too, although it’s unclear when this might be.
BT TV and Amazon Prime Video are both geo-restricted. If you’re outside the UK, you’ll need a VPN to stream Fear the Walking Dead on either service.
The new season of Fear the Walking Dead will air every Monday on Fox Showcase at 1 PM, with a repeat at 9:30 PM AEST. Current Foxtel TV subscribers can log in and watch online via the Foxtel Go app. Alternatively, it’s possible to sign up for Foxtel Now ($25 AUD per month after a 10-day trial) and watch online without cable.
If you’re looking to catch up before season six starts, you’ll find all five previous seasons on Foxtel Now and Binge ($10 per month, with a two-week trial). However, both of these platforms are region-locked, so you’ll need a VPN to access them from outside Australia.
What do we know about Fear the Walking Dead season 6?
The trailer for the new season is full of potential clues but unlike with The Walking Dead, there’s no source material to cross-reference them with. The most concrete information we have is that Morgan is not (quite) dead — his eyes are shown opening, but it’s unclear whether he’s become a zombie or not.
We’ve also heard the sixth season will be more “like an anthology” since the main cast were separated during the events of season five. With the teaser trailer showing someone trapped inside a cage, we can expect that some of the show’s characters are clearly doing better than others. To find out what happens, and to who, you’ll have to tune in for yourself when the new season airs.
