Demo-Graphics: Fear The Walking Dead

Last week we looked at the demographics for The Walking Dead‘ finding that the popular show has about 24 million likes in the United States on Facebook and women account for 54.17% of those likes. This week we’re looking at Fear the Walking Dead, the sister show whose second season debuted this past Sunday.

For this report, we’re looking at fans within the United States that enjoy Fear The Walking Dead just on television, due to the lack of other terms.

Spanish speakers account for 170,000 fans, 12.14%.

Much like The Walking Dead, women are the majority of the likes for Fear the Walking Dead. Women account for 52.86% with 740,000 individuals and men are 49.29% with 690,000 individuals. The total is over 100% due to how Facebook rounds the data.

Though the show has a pretty diverse cast these stats are not what I expected compared to The Walking Dead. African Americans are a higher percentage, but all of the rest are lower with some variation in the Hispanic demographic.

This data is what I’d expect with the show being more popular with those in the Generation X demographic. Millennials is about the same.
