The fourth season of AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” will arrive on Sunday, April 15, and we can expect that it’ll be the most interesting season of the series to date. For starters, it’ll see the arrival of “The Walking Dead” character Morgan Jones, which immediately makes Season 4 a must-watch for all fans of this particular franchise.
With a new showrunner also on board for Season 4, “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman promises that some big time changes are coming this year.
“I don’t want to spoil anything story-wise, but we are changing things a great deal,” Robert Kirkman tells EW. “It’s going to be a much different show that is not going to alienate any viewers that have been enjoying the show from season 1 to 3, but will give those people new things to love, and new characters to latch onto. It’s really going to shake things up.”
Kirkman also spoke specifically about Morgan crossing over.
“When Scott [Gimple] suggested moving Morgan over, it seemed like a really great idea and a really cool way to bring things in,” he told the site. “I know the audience doesn’t really know exactly how that makes sense yet, or what’s actually coming of it. As the year progresses and you see exactly what it is, you’ll see that it’s going to be a really great story for Morgan that will give us a lot of cool insight into his character.”
“In Season 4, we will see the world of Madison Clark and her family through new eyes — the eyes of Morgan Jones, joining the story from the world of “The Walking Dead.” The characters’ immediate past mixes with an uncertain present of struggle and discovery as they meet new friends, foes, and threats. They fight for each other, against each other, and against a legion of the dead to somehow build an existence against the crushing pressure of lives coming apart. There will be darkness and light; terror and grace; the heroic, mercenary, and craven – all crashing together towards a new reality.”
Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo and Danay Garcia are all back for “Fear the Walking Dead” Season 4.
Garret Dillahunt, Jenna Elfman, Maggie Grace, Evan Gamble and Kevin Zegers all join the cast this year, along with “The Walking Dead” star Lennie James as Morgan Jones.
Season 4 marks the departure of original showrunner Dave Erickson, with Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg (“Once Upon a Time”) filling in, alongside Scott M. Gimple.
