Fear the Walking Dead‘s fifth season wrapped up back in September, and a promo (dropped in April) for season six hinted of more grim Wild West vibes ahead, complete with cowboy hats, mask-wearing horseback riders, and flaming oil wells. Today’s Comic-Con panel revealed even more about what’s to come.
First up: an official premiere date of Sunday, October 12 on AMC in the U.S. It will likely appear on Foxtel in Australia, but a premiere date is currently unconfirmed.
“Is Morgan… OK?” was the first question at the panel, and everyone (including actor Lennie James, who plays Morgan ” a key Fear the Walking Dead character who was left for dead, in a world where people don’t necessarily die, at the end of season five) kind of snickered through definitively answering that obvious spoiler.
The rest of the panel ” divided into two parts, because Fear has a huge cast ” also features actors Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Karen David, Jenna Elfman, and Rubén Blades, as well as showrunners-exec producers Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, and Scott M. Gimple, the “chief content officer” of all things The Walking Dead.
