  • Season seven of "The Walking Dead" spinoff "Fear TWD" has been filming since April.

  • Though "TWD" is ending, coshowrunner Ian Goldberg told Insider season 7 won't be "Fear's" last.

  • Or at least AMC hasn't told Goldberg and coshowrunner Andrew Chambliss if that's the case.

Unlike "The Walking Dead," its spinoff "Fear TWD" is going to continue going on for as long as AMC will allow showrunners Ian Goldberg and Andrew Chambliss to do so.

When asked how they're tackling the next season of the show, given that both the flagship "The Walking Dead" series and its spinoff "The Walking Dead: World Beyond" are entering their final seasons, coshowrunner Ian Goldberg told Insider on Friday over Zoom that they're "approaching it as season seven" and nothing more.

"We're very excited about it," Goldberg said of season seven, which has been in production since April 6. "It is not the final season, at least as far as we know from AMC. They haven't told us that."

"We're gonna keep telling these stories as long as AMC tells us to keep doing them," Goldberg added. "Don't think about saying goodbye yet, we're sticking around for awhile."

Insider can report that AMC does not have news to share around a season renewal yet.

"Fear TWD" airs its season finale, which is currently streaming on AMC+, Sunday night on AMC.

The episode rounds out a surprisingly stellar season which critics have hailed as the show's best in years.

They're not wrong. The season really has been a reinvention of the show, which the showrunners have credited to taking more of an anthology approach in its episodes by separating its characters to focus on individualized storytelling.

Despite two of its "TWD" series ending in the future, AMC already has plans for multiple spinoff series, including an untitled Carol and Daryl series that is set to launch in 2023.

And, of course, there's also that long-awaited Rick Grimes movie from Universal that "TWD" universe chief content officer Scott M. Gimple has told Insider is going to be "amazing."

We'll have our full, spoiler-filled interview with Chambliss and Goldberg after the "Fear TWD" season finale airs at 9 p.m. Sunday on AMC.
