Fans of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead have had a lot to process coming out of the first-half of the show's season 4: the loss of show mainstays Madison (Kim Dickens) and Nick (Frank Dillane); the first full crossover with The Walking Dead in the form of Morgan (Lennie James); and the introduction of new – and very popular – characters Althea (Maggie Grace), John Dorie (Garrett Dillahunt), and Laura/Naomi/June (Jenna Elfman).
After warring between themselves and then with The Vultures, our group of surivivors find themselves on the road – some looking for a place to settle and call home, while others still harboring a need to atone for past sins or mourn tragic losses. As we can see from the extended season trailer released during FTWD's San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) panel on Friday (panel/press conference report coming this week), Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), Strand (Colman Domingo), and the others are going to have to trust each other pretty quickly because it looks like Mother Nature – and maybe something else – is coming their way. But does the biggest threat come from within?
The first half of season four began with one figure huddled around a campfire, and ended with nine. Characters who started their journeys in isolation collided with each other in unexpected ways and found themselves in one of the last places they ever expected to be…together. In the back half of the season they will explore who they are now – as individuals and as part of the greater group – and how they will forge ahead. They will find themselves pitted against new adversaries – human, walker, and even nature itself. Theirs will be a journey wrought with danger, love, heartbreak, loss, and ultimately, hope.
The series is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero, and produced by AMC Studios. The series stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace and Jenna Elfman.
