After eight years on air, Fear the Walking Dead is about to end with an explosive eighth and final season. Fans can expect a time jump in this round of the zombie apocalypse spin-off show and the likely end of longtime character Morgan’s storyline.

Split into two six-episode segments, with the second installment set to follow later in the year, this first run follows the immediate aftermath of the botched rescue mission to free Mo from P.A.D.R.E. in the Season 7 finale.

The final season sees Kim Dickens returning as Madison Clark in a regular capacity after being a guest star in season 7. Meanwhile Morgan (Lennie James), Victor (Colman Domingo), Luciana (Danay García) and company all return for the show’s swan song as well. Here’s when and where to stream the last chapters of the story.

Quick tips for streaming ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 8 using a VPN 

  • With four variables at play — your ISP, browser, video streaming provider and VPN — your experience and success when streaming FTWD episodes may vary.
  • If you don’t see your desired location as a default option for ExpressVPN, try using the “search for city or country” option.
  • If you’re having trouble getting the game after you’ve turned on your VPN and set it to the correct viewing area, there are two things you can try for a quick fix. First, log into your streaming service subscription account and make sure the address registered for the account is an address in the correct viewing area. If not, you may need to change the physical address on file with your account. Second, some smart TVs — like Roku — don’t have VPN apps you can install directly on the device itself. Instead, you’ll have to install the VPN on your router or the mobile hotspot you’re using (like your phone) so that any device on its Wi-Fi network now appears in the correct viewing location.
  • All of the VPN providers we recommend have helpful instructions on their main site for quickly installing the VPN on your router. In some cases with smart TV services, after you install a cable network’s sports app, you’ll be asked to verify a numeric code or click a link sent to your email address on file for your smart TV. This is where having a VPN on your router will also help, since both devices will appear to be in the correct location. 
  • And remember, browsers can often give away a location despite using a VPN, so be sure you’re using a privacy-first browser to log into your services. We normally recommend Brave.
