New showrunners, new stars, new setting, and a new—but highly anticipated—crossover. Frankly, the fourth season of Fear the Walking Dead looks like an entirely new TV series... about zombies.


The trailer debuted last Sunday night and while it doesn’t explain how Madison, Nick, Alicia, and the crew got to this new amusement park/stadium situation after the dam explosion last year, it’s obvious they are quite comfortable there. Characters played by Garret Dillahunt and Jenna Elfman are clearly going to add a new attitude to the show. Then, of course, there’s Lennie James’s Morgan, making the jump from The Walking Dead, who opens up the spinoff’s world in a multitude of ways. See for yourself:

Fear the Walking Dead, led by new showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, returns on April 15.

Can’t watch the video.

Is this Morgan before this season of Walking Dead, or after?

I know TWD is years ahead, but it sounds like possibly a time jump in FTWD?
