‘Fear the Walking Dead’ season 4 will be here soon with plenty of new characters on board…
‘Fear the Walking Dead’ season 4 is set to debut on Sunday night, April 15 at 10pm ET and then move to the regular 9pm ET time slot the following week.
‘Fear the Walking Dead’ season 4 will not only see Lennie James join the series from ‘The Walking Dead’ as his character Morgan will bridge the two shows for the first time ever but the upcoming season will also be the first with Scott M. Gimple serving as executive producer.
Gimple was just recently promoted to chief content officer over both ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ where he will craft the stories for both series while working closely with the show runners on direction to casting and everything else in between.
‘Fear the Walking Dead’ will also introduce several new characters for season 4 and details about the newest cast members was revealed this week courtesy AMC via Entertainment Weekly.
Maggie Gracie will play Althea who is described as “someone who is uniquely qualified to survive — to thrive, even — in this world because of who she was before the apocalypse. When we meet her, we’ll find she has, in many ways, picked up right where she left off before the world collapsed. She has a number of impressive weapons in her arsenal, including a curiosity and understanding of people that often gives her a tactical advantage. It’s never something for nothing with Althea. She has a greater purpose that she is constantly working toward; one which Strand takes a particular interest in.”
Garret Dillahunt will play John “a man of fascinating contradictions. He loves people but has spent a great deal of time on his own. He’s a gentle soul — an innocent in many ways — but is no stranger to violence. He can be soft-spoken and disarmingly funny all at once.”
Jenna Elfman will play Naomi “a capable survivor we’ll meet living on her own early on in the season. She’ll have her guard up as she crosses paths with Madison and her family, and — as we’ll learn over the course of the season — she’ll have a very good reason for keeping people at a distance. Even so, she’ll end up developing some connections that surprise her, including a bond with Alicia.”
And of course Lennie James will continue his journey as Morgan after he leaves ‘The Walking Dead’ season 8 and then appears on ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ season 4. His travel between series will start in ‘The Walking Dead’ before he finally makes his first appearance on ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ so it will be interesting to see how he makes it from Virginia to the west coast to unite with cast from ‘Fear the Walking Dead’.
Expect a new trailer for ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ in the near future as well with ‘The Walking Dead’ returning on Sunday night, Feb. 25 at 9pm ET on AMC.
