“Fear of the Walking Dead” Season 5: Will Humbug Gulch Be the “End of the Line” for Morgan’s Vision? [PREVIEW]

If you’re a fan of the Walking Dead universe, things are pretty sweet right now – especially from the perspective of AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead. Following up on an epic appearance at this summer’s Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC), we learned that the series been picked up for a sixth season – and as we’ve already seen, the second-half brings the arrival of new survivors – and new foes.

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.

In the second half of Season 5, after successfully proving their way can work, our heroes gain momentum, rescuing survivors, and spreading the message of hope along the way — until foes both familiar and unexpected arise, forcing the group to question whether their brand of altruism can really make a difference in a world filled with death and decay.
