‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 5: Skybound Offers “Unique” Season 4B Recap [VIDEO]

With less than two months to go before AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead returns for its fifth season, the fine folk at Skybound are offering their own rather “unique” look back at the second-half of the series’ fourth season. Seems only appropriate considering the fourth season was definitely unlike any of the seasons prior – with the addition of The Walking Dead‘s Morgan (Lennie James) to the cast just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to a series that was really looking to reinvent itself this season – and succeeded.

Now that you’re up-to-speed on all the finer points of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, here’s what you have to look forward to/fear when the series returns on Sunday, June 2nd:

Heading into season 5 of Fear the Walking Dead, the group’s mission is clear: locate survivors and help make what’s left of the world a slightly better place. With dogged determination, Morgan Jones leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Each character believes that helping others will allow them to make up for the wrongs of their pasts.

But trust won’t be easily earned. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when our group finds themselves in unchartered territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears. It is only through facing those fears that the group will discover an entirely new way to live, one that will leave them forever changed.

Earlier this year, FTWD cast member Alexa Nisenson (ex-Vulture Charlie) was promoted from recurring to series regular for the upcoming season. Joining Nisenson are Karen David (Legacies, Galavant) as a series regular reportedly named “Grace,” and The Walking Dead alum Amelio, reprising ex-Savior Dwight for the fifth season. At WonderCon 2019, it was announced that Ruben Blades would be returning to the series as Daniel Salazar – even making an appearance at the panel.

Nisenson, David, Blades, and Amelio join Dwight’s crossover comrade Morgan on the upcoming season of The Walking Dead spin-off series, which has undergone some major changes over the past year. Jenna Elfman, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Mo Collins, and Daryl Mitchell joined James on the series last season; with Alycia Debnam-Carey, Colman Domingo, and Danay Garcia the only original cast members heading into the fifth season. As we saw from the images above, Cooper Dodson is on board as Dylan, Ethan Suess plays Max, and Bailey Gavulicplays Annie. Daniel Sharman is expected to reprise his role as Troy Otto, though how his character will come into play during the upcoming season is still unknown.
