The final six episodes to Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 return to our screens next month. With Morgan (Lennie James) out of the picture and searching for Rick Grimes – his story will likely reunite him, for a third time, with his old friend in The Ones Who Live.
Stepping up is Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) who takes centre stage in a fight against an old enemy and an army of the undead. Troy (Daniel Sharman), is back, with one less eye. No body, not dead, as the saying goes. The Season 3 villain, however, has a score to settle against Madison.
Allies rally together, vows are made, old and new characters reunite, and in the face of mounting adversaries, the survivors face the inevitable – a fight until the end. You can watch the trailer below, which shares the same title, for all the zombie-themed action and drama we can expect from the last six weeks.
Michael E. Satrazemis, who directed Madison’s mid-season departure in Season 4 – which appeared to confirm her “death” told Entertainment Weekly it was a “joy” to work with the actress again.
“I think she’s fantastic. And getting to have the experience where we’re creating together and able to close the show up together, it felt very special. I don’t know if any shows get to be this kind of karmically correct. It’s a beautiful circular thing that I’m very happy to be a part of.”
As for how it all ends, Satrazemis can only tease fans. “You never know what you’re going to see.”
“You might see some new things, you might have some new obstacles, and it’s kind of the way the show is. It’s always reinventing itself.”
Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 debuts on AMC and AMC+ on Sunday, October 22, 2023. Early fan reviews for The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon are in, and they might surprise you.
