Get the first look at the new season of Fear the Walking Dead with a three-minute scene from episode three featuring John Dorie Sr. (played by Dexter‘s Keith Carradine) and June (played by Dharma & Greg‘s Jenna Elfman).
Watch the clip from Fear The Walking Dead below.
The scene from the Fear the Walking Dead trailer shows the two characters disturbed while trying to sleep. A rumbling, a shelf falling over, which reveals a hole in the wall. John Sr. tears through the hole to reveal a room where Teddy (played by Smallville actor John Glover), who was a serial killer and antagonist from the last season.
This was the second first look tease we have gotten for Fear the Walking Dead. The other one showed Morgan (Lennie James from The Walking Dead) and Grace (Karen David from Once Upon a Time) at the beached submarine with the baby they basically adopted. Outside with a Mad Max yellow color palette is someone with a gas mask.
The clips for the upcoming season of Fear the Walking Dead are trying to set the tone for how things will be different this time around, especially since multiple nuclear explosions went off last season. It is raising the stakes and what new issues the survivors will need to tackle to survive in this zombie-infected wasteland. It changes the game for people, both hostile and friendly, and the walking corpses.
During San Diego Comic-Con @ Home 2021, a panel was held to discuss what’s to come for the seventh season of Fear the Walking Dead. James, Alycia Debnam-Carey (The 100), Colman Domingo (Euphoria), Danay Garcia (Prison Break), Elfman, David (Once Upon a Time), Mo Collins (Parks and Recreation), and Christine Evangelista (The Arrangement) all attended the panel. They went into detail about what fans should expect moving forward, like where their characters are currently at and where they are heading.
The Walking Dead Universe’s chief content officer Scott M. Gimple spoke about the greater universe of the franchise. He confirmed the nuclear explosions were before the setting of the main series, which is set to have its final season next year. It turns out some characters are aware that this happened in the past, creating another thread outside of James’ Morgan and Evangelista’s Sherry that connects Fear the Walking Dead to The Walking Dead. When it comes to finally cross over in a more official way that ties the prequel to what’s going on in the present, Gimple said it is “possible.”
Other big news was announced as Debnam-Carey will be directing an episode for the upcoming season of Fear the Walking Dead. No details were given about what she will explore with her episode, but she said that she has wanted “another creative layer” that she “wanted to explore” for quite some time now. While she admitted she is a bit anxious, she said it is “gonna be great.”
The next season of Fear the Walking Dead will premiere on October 17. Episodes will stream earlier on AMC Plus, but we are not sure how much earlier.
