It is now finally time to watch Fear the Walking Dead season 7 online, even without cable, because nothing needs to stand in your way. Unlike on the show, where a nuclear apocalypse has been heaped on top of the zombie apocalypse. 

The premiere episode was streaming early on AMC Plus and finally tonight on AMC. Morgan (Lennie James) and his group are contending with the fallout from the nuclear bombs set off by Teddy. 

Fear the Walking Dead season 7 start time, channel

Fear the Walking Dead season 7 premiere episode airs today (October 17) at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.
It is streaming now on AMC Plus.

In Fear the Walking Dead season 7 episode 1, "The Beacon," the Texas landscape has been devastated by Teddy's nuclear warheads. The air is as deadly as the zombies that still roam the area. The survivors will find out who they really are and what they're really made of. 

Strand (Colman Domingo) has managed to secure one of the few inhabitable places left. His search for other people brings him across Will (Gus Halper), a stranger with an unexpected connection to Strand's past.
