Fear the Walking Dead, the first spinoff from flagship series, The Walking Dead, is coming to an end. In preparation for the series finale, AMC has released the synopsis, photos, and a teaser for the second half of season eight.
In the first half of season eight, Madison (Kim Dickens) and Morgan (Lennie James) went on a mission to save his daughter Mo (Zoey Merchant). They also planned to stop Shrike (Maya Eshet) and Crane (Daniel Rashid), the PADRE siblings who were kidnapping people from their families.
“Now that Shrike and her influence are gone, Madison sets sights on transforming PADRE into the safe haven the old Stadium was meant to be,” the official synopsis reads. “But in doing so the island becomes a target as well as a beacon as word of Madison and this land of resources spreads, attracting unwanted attention that puts PADRE back in peril and questions whether our heroes even deserve to save it.”
The new season will see Madison and Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) reconnecting after seven years – but that isn’t the only reunion. Old enemy Troy Otto (Daniel Sharman) who was believed dead after Madison nailed him in the head with a hammer way back in season three, is back and is interested in PADRE.
The teaser trailer shows Troy confronting Madison and accusing her of taking everything from him. We see Strand’s new look, a snowy setting, and Madison promising “This is how we survive” as they gear up to protect the island.
The second half of the eighth and final season of Fear the Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 22, 2023.
