Fear the Walking Dead season six was pretty intense and left off on an explosive cliffhanger. Never “fear” Walking Dead fans, You will find out soon what happens to our friendly survivors in Texas. The cast and producers were on hand at SDCC at Home 2021 to talk about the upcoming season.
The threat of nuclear warfare loomed over the entire season six of Fear TWD as we slowly met a group of people that believed “the end is the beginning.” That turned out to be a group of people that needed someone to believe in. Unfortunately for them, they believed in the wrong guy. Now Morgan (Lennie James) and the group are scattered and in danger of radiation poisoning.
Teddy (John Glover) successfully launched a missile from the submarine with 10 warheads inside. For geographical purposes, the submarine is located on the coast near Galveston, Texas. Alicia was put in to a protective cell so she could lead the new world. Morgan and Grace (Karen David) were near the submarine after finding Baby Morgan. June (Jenna Elfman) and John Sr, (Keith Carradine) found shelter after confronting Teddy and Dakota (Zoe Colletti). Dwight (Austin Amelio) and Sherry (Christine Evangelista) found shelter with a new family. Daniel (Rubén Blades), Luciana (Danay Garcia), and others were saved by the CRM! Courtesy of Al (Maggie Grace). And Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) survives on his own terms.
At the San Diego Comic Con panel, showrunners Andrew Chambliss, Ian Goldberg, and TWD Universe chief content officer Scott Gimple joined the cast. The first announcement was the return of Fear the Walking Dead. As well as a short clip from the new season. There was some casting news as well. Sydney Lemmon will return as CRM soldier Isabella. Omid Abtahi will return as Howard, a man that Victor met at the end of the Fear TWD season six finale. And Gus Halbert joins the cast, but the showrunners would not say who he will play.
The panel presented two short clips from the new season. The first shows viewers how Morgan, Grace and baby Morgan survive. But at the end of the clip, we get to see the effect of the missile on the landscape. The sky is orange, the walkers are highly affected by the radiation and a stranger walks near the submarine, looking for signs of life.
The second clip shows June and John Sr. in Teddy’s bunker. They wake up to the ground rumbling and discover a hidden room. The room is Teddy’s killing place. June wants to patch up the whole and forget the room exists. But John criptically tells himself that it’s not too late. Hmmm …
The Fear TWD panel also announced Alycia Debnam-Carey will direct an episode in season seven. Carey, Blades, and Domingo are the last original cast members on the show. So she has a very good perspective of the show. James and Domingo directed episodes in season six. You can watch the full panel on YouTube. Check out the clips from today’s panel below.
