Fear The Walking Dead Fans' Least Favorite Character Will Surprise You

The Fear the Walking Dead subreddit recently conducted a poll to find out fans' favorite living characters, and — well — sorry, Charlie. Alexa Nisenson's teenage survivor Charlie and Danay Garcia's gasoline manufacturer Luciana tied for last place. Charlie and Lucy's low placement is a little bit surprising, as they are not disliked by fans the way that Jenna Elfman's June is. To be fair, though, June finished only just ahead of Charlie and Lucy on the list.

Their low ranking probably has to do with them not getting much to do in their limited screen time in Season 6 so far. It's unlikely most fans really hate the girls — they just don't exactly top anyone's list of absolute faves. The characters just don't get enough to do, which is pretty unfortunate if you think about it. If the poll were explicitly framed as "who is your least favorite cast member?" then June and Jenna Elfman would probably get a lot of votes from Reddit users. As Nate Silver can confirm, it's all about how you ask the questions.

Who's fans' favorite character?

Fans' favorite character is a little bit of a surprise, too, if only for the way it bucks the trend of the composition of the rest of the list. The top of the list is dominated by characters who have been with the show since before the Season 4 reboot that brought Morgan Jones (Lennie James) over from the The Walking Dead to serve as the new lead. That veteran domination ends with number one fan favorite, Garret Dillahunt's gunslinger John Dorie. 

The trick-shooting police officer got almost twice as many votes as second-place finisher Alicia Clark (Alycia Debnam-Carey). It's not a surprise that people love him, as he's a heroic but complex character who's been the focus of some of the show's best episodes, including the best episode of Season 6 so far, "The Key." The objective truth here is that Dillahunt's performance is one of the best on any show in the Walking Dead Universe — period.

Fear the Walking Dead season 6 is currently on a midseason hiatus, and is slated to return to AMC in 2021. Season 6 has been hailed as a return to form for the series after a very weak fifth season, and it currently has the highest critical score on Rotten Tomatoes of any season of the Walking Dead spin-off — even higher than season 3, which fans on Reddit consider the best. AMC has already renewed the series for season 7, and fans are hoping that the most popular character ever, Madison (Kim Dickens), will make a return.
