Fear The Walking Dead (FWD) is a prequel series to AMC’s post-apocalyptic horror drama, The Walking Dead (TWD). While TWD is into its 10th season, FWD has returned from a midseason break. Here’s everything you need to know about the future of the show.
Will there be another series of Fear the Walking Dead?
There is good news for Fear The Walking Dead fans, season six has been given the green light by AMC,
The news that the Walking Dead spin-off would be returning was was confirmed by showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg at Comic-Con International in July.
Previous seasons of Fear the Walking Dead, apart from season one in 2015, have aired between April and June since 2016.
This means fans can expect season six of Fear The Walking Dead to arrive in April 2020.
Episodes of Fear The Walking Dead air every Sunday in the US and every Monday evening at 9pm AMC UK.
What will happen in Fear the Walking Dead season 6?
As season five is still airing it is hard to predict how the show will set up series six.
In the fifth series, Morgan Jones (played by Lennie James) leads the group to find other survivors.
The latest season of Fear The Walking Dead will wrap up on Sunday, September 29.
However, at Comic-Con the showrunners teased how the second half of season five will set up some major “changes” in season six.
Chambliss said: “Without giving something away, the world is going to expand in a big way and by the time we get to the end of the season, it is really going to shake the entire group to the very core and really change the show in a way that will launch us into season six, in a really big way,
“We are constantly striving to change what Fear is and reinvent it, so just as soon as everyone thinks they’ve figured out what we’re doing, we change things up and that’s gonna continue through season five.
“There’ll be a big change at the end of season five.“
Goldberg added: “We really see season five as one big epic story, but as you’ll see if you continue to watch, it all builds to an ending which very much sets up what the design of season six is going to be and we’ve been planning it for a while.
“When you go back and watch it all, [what happens] might seem inevitable.“
The main cast of Fear The Walking Dead will hopefully return for the sixth season.
This means Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, Austin Amelio, Ruben Blades, and Karen David should be back.
Also joining the cast of the new series is Alexa Mansour, Nicolas Cantu, and Hal Cumpston. Variety confirmed that a fourth role has yet to be cast.
Mansour has previously stared as Faiza Assaf in How to Get Away with Murder.
Cantu is an up and coming actor, who has previously star din Nickelodeon’s Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie and Dora and Friends: Not the City!
Cumpston is an up and coming Australian actor, who has written, and produced and starred in his feature film called Bilched.
