“The exceptional creativity shown by our competition’s entrants demonstrates just how much ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ resonates with fans across the world,” said Geraud Alazard, Senior Vice President of Marketing, AMC Networks International. “Empowering fans to take part in the new season’s launch has brought them into this universe to share in the excitement around a character from ‘The Walking Dead’ crossing over to join the cast of ‘Fear’ for the first time. ”
Season four of “Fear the Walking Dead” premieres globally on AMC from 15th April. In the new season we will see the world of Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) and her family through new eyes – the eyes of Morgan Jones (Lennie James), 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 for “Fear the Walking Dead.”
Produced by AMC Studios, “Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by Scott M. Gimple, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, as well as Robert Kirkman, David Alpert, Gale Anne Hurd and Greg Nicotero. The new season will consist of 16 episodes with the final half of the season premiering later in 2018.
