While the Walking Dead spin-off series Fear the Walking Dead felt like a swing and a miss in its first couple seasons, its recent attention from Once Upon A Time's showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg has helped to make it arguably even more popular than The Walking Dead itself. The latest preview for Season 4 debuted at Comic-Con. The show returns with its ninth episode next month, promises even more of the "good stuff" that audiences love.
One of the best decisions for Fear The Walking Dead was bringing the character Morgan on board. Whereas Morgan was a great character in The Walking Dead, he didn't really get the spotlight as much as he should've considering that he had to share the stage with the likes of Rick, Daryl, and Negan. Evidently, Fear The Walking Dead is the perfect place for Morgan, being able to explore more of his in-depth character and actually bringing a lot of heart to the spin-off series.
Since the ending of Season 4's eighth episode No One's Gone, there hasn't been much revealed about what to expect from the second half of the season. The eighth episode didn't really leave audiences on much of a cliffhanger, so it's safe to say that the second half of the season will be treated like its own individual story, which all in all is a good thing. Here is AMC's full synopsis for Season 4 of Fear the Walking Dead as a whole.
In Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 we will see the world of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her family through new eyes -- the eyes of Morgan Jones (Lennie James), joining the story from the world of The Walking Dead. The characters' immediate past mixes with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes and threats. They fight for each other, against each other and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; the heroic, mercenary, and craven, all crashing together towards a new reality for Fear the Walking Dead.
The second half of Season 4 will pick back up around mid-August with the episode People Like Us. Fortunately, based on the trailers and details revealed so far, it looks like the focus will stay on Morgan. Hopefully Morgan will stick around in Fear The Walking Dead after Season 4, as he truly has become the star of the series.
In addition to Lennie James, who plays Morgan, the second half of Season 4 will star Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay García, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, and Jenna Elfman. Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg are sticking around as showrunners at least through the rest of the season, with the episode People Like Us being directed by Magnus Martens. Watch the trailer for the second half of Season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead below, and be sure to catch the bone-chilling series when it returns to AMC on August 12th.
