Not only is Season 8 of “The Walking Dead” coming to an end this Sunday night, but the fourth season of spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead” will begin. With the arrival of “Walking Dead” character Morgan Jones and a handful of new characters, Season 4 promises to be a whole new show, and franchise architect Scott Gimple is now saying it’s so its own thing, so fresh and new, that enjoying it doesn’t even require brushing up on or even watching the previous three seasons. Good news for those who haven’t had the time!
“This is absolutely something that new fans can jump right into, just as Morgan has to jump right into the story of Fear the Walking Dead,” Gimple just told The Wrap.
He continued, making a great point, “Morgan did not have to watch the first three seasons to understand what is happening… to follow what’s going on in ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 4, you do not have to have watched the first three seasons.”
Gimple says you should, however, if you just plain want to watch some good TV.
