'Fear the Walking Dead' Season 5: "There Is Still Goodness in This World"

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Season 5: “There Is Still Goodness in This World. Just Hold On. We’re Coming…”

Posted by April 21, 2019 Comment

One of the things that’s exciting us the most about the return of AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead for a fifth season is how it’s not only hitting the ground running when it returns on Sunday, June 2 – it’s coming back with a renewed purpose. No longer content to “just survive” and inspired by the triumphs and tragedies of last season, our survivors have commited themselves to brining hope (and supplies) to other survivors out there – to let them know they’re not alone.

Or as Jenna Elfman‘s June urges in the following teaser promo:

“If you can hear this… and you’re out there and you need help… there is still goodness in this world.

Just hold on.

Do you copy?

We’re coming…”

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 Austin 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 (Lennie James) on the upcoming season of The Walking Dead spin-off series, which has undergone some major changes over the past year. 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 Gavulic plays Annie. Daniel Sharman is reportedly reprising his role as Troy Otto, though how his character will come into play during the upcoming season is still unknown.
