Fear the Walking Dead’s first season ended Sunday on a good note: The Walking Dead companion series had the highest rated first season of any series in cable history, AMC announced Friday.

“When we set out to launch a companion series to the No. 1 show on television, there were truly many things to fear, beyond Fear itself,” AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement. “To see this show stand alone, break through and set records as a unique piece of storytelling is very gratifying and a tribute to great creative talent.”
