Fear The Walking Dead Season 7 Gets Premiere Date, New Cast, And First Clips Revealed
Fear The Walking Dead Season 6 ended in June, but always the Walking Dead spin-off is coming back and at Comic-Con we got our first look at it.
The latest season of Fear the Walking Dead may have wrapped up back in June, but Season 7 of the AMC show is getting ready to premiere on October 7, at at 9 PM/8 PM CT. Two clips from the upcoming season were shown and episodes for Season 7 will debut a early on the AMC+ streaming service.
That's not all that was revealed during the panel, though. The first two clips from the new season were shown, introducing a very different zombie apocalypse. Those who watched through the end of Season 6 will no doubt remember that a series of nuclear warheads were detonated across the state of Texas, leading to a ridiculously dangerous double apocalypse scenario--zombies and nuclear fallout.
In the first clip, which you can watch above, it's seen just how dire the situation is. Morgan (Lennie James) and Grace (Karen David) have hunkered down inside a nuclear submarine with baby Morgan, only going outside--in full hazmat attire--when necessary. In the clip, Grace goes on a search for food for the baby, showing the audience just how devastated the landscape is and what a nuked zombie looks like.
The second clip finds June (Jenna Elfman) and John Dorie Sr. (Keith Carradine) surviving in the bunker built by Teddy (John Glover)--the man who detonated the nuclear warheads. After an unknown amount of time living there, the two find a hidden room in the bunker caked in blood. John deduces that it's the room where Teddy carried out his serial killings before the apocalypse. While Teddy is dead now, the memory of his actions and John's own inability to arrest him for them, still weighs on Dorie.
As for new faces, one addition was announced for the series. Gus Halper (Dickinson) is joining the cast in an undisclosed role. Meanwhile, both Sydney Lemon, who played Isabella, and Omid Abtahi, who played Howard, will reprise their Season 6 roles, alongside the rest of the cast.
Fear the Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 7 for the first eight episodes of Season 7. Before that, the final season of The Walking Dead arrives on August 22.
