AMC's horror-drama series "Fear the Walking Dead" Season 2 is on a hiatus and won't return before next month when the next episode will air on Aug. 21. Viewers are eagerly looking forward to find out the whereabouts and the fate of the characters who are no more united and are scattered.

Almost all the major characters are now separated from each other and have decided to choose their own paths. With each episode, the show is getting darker and grimmer.

Since it acts as a prequel to AMC's other highly popular horror-drama series "The Walking Dead," it won't come as a surprise if the prominent characters start getting killed in the upcoming episodes.

Here are some of the major contenders who might be killed off as the series moves forward with Season 2:

Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie)

Chris became deranged in the first half of the second season after the confrontation with the walkers. With more unexpected situations popping up frequently, he might finally lose it and end up killing himself.

Nick (Frank Dillane)

Nick has got some fighting skills and he knows how to survive in the toughest of the situations. At the same time, he has a dark side to his personality and it might be only a matter of time that that side surfaces and engulfs him in it.

Daniel (Rubén Blades)

Daniel has leadership qualities; he always put himself out in front of any sort of problems, hence making himself a big target. There might come a day when the walkers realize it and make him an easy target.

Victor Strand (Colman Domingo)

Fans will be reluctant to see him getting killed off as he is one of the most interesting characters in the show who has powerful contacts and never hesitates to use them for helping the survivors. However, with his mysterious history and a knack to save others, like Daniel makes him an easy approach for the zombies.

Madison (Kim Dickens)

Madison's character is not much explored in the series yet, so she might be on the writers' safe side. However, given that if they decide to kill her of, "Fear the Walking Dead" will be even more bold and unexpected than "The Walking Dead." Hence, it remains as a significant possibility.
