fear the walking dead season 4 trailer

For a zombie show, you don’t see a lot of characters return in The Walking Dead. Which is why it feels like a miracle to see fan-favorite Walking Dead character Morgan Jones cross over to the AMC spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. Especially in a series that has a pretty poor track record with black characters.

Walking Dead star Lennie James was announced to make the jump to the spin-off last year, but it’s still a pleasant surprise to see him show up in the first Fear the Walking Dead season 4 trailer.

Walking Dead

At San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year, The Walking Dead creator and executive producer Robert Kirkman played coy on the subject of a crossover episode between AMC’s flagship horror series and its spin-off, Fear the Walking Dead. “We know the fans would love it,” he said. But then he noted that it was “complicated” because the shows take place in different times and places, albeit in the same zombie-ravaged world.

And then his tune changed at New York Comic-Con, where he revealed that the two series will feature a crossover episode that will somehow bring characters from both shows together. The “how” and the “who” of it all remains a mystery.

Thor Ragnarok Comic-Con Footage and Panel

Members of the /Film staff spent much of the past week in San Diego to cover Comic-Con 2017, the enormous convention that explores every single corner of the geek world (and surely you’ve heard of it and already knew that).

We explored the world of Blade Runner 2049 in a special VR experience. We watched 7,000 people go totally nuts over the first trailer for Stranger Things season 2.

fear the walking dead comic-con panel

Appropriately, Fear the Walking Dead served as a warm-up act to its parent show at Comic-Con in San Diego, premiering a new trailer for a packed house of fans. While AMC’s zombie spin-off has never achieved the overwhelming popularity of the original The Walking Dead, it definitely offers a different flavor of zombie apocalypse via the Mexican locations and a timeframe that places the action much earlier in the franchise timeline.

With the second half of the show’s third season returning this September, the series looks to bring its various story threads to a boiling point. As you’d expect, the details we learned and the footage we saw promised a grim future for the various survivors.

avatar sequels

Here’s more news to solidify that the Avatar sequels are actually happening: Fear the Walking Dead star Cliff Curtis will be joining all four sequels to the James Cameron sci-fi epic in a lead role.

Curtis’ role will expand the mythology of the Avatar universe by taking the series underwater, which Cameron has hinted at, and which posed many obstacles for the motion-capture technology that Avatar uses.
