A brand new trailer for AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead has creeped its way online, having debuted during its Comic-Con@Home panel earlier Friday.
This latest look at Season 6, coming a few months after the original teaser trailer, confirms the survival of Morgan Jones, a fan favorite bounty hunter character who first appeared in the original Walking Dead series before making his way over to Fear. However — and spoilers for a trailer abound — his bloody red eyes suggest he may not be as well off as fans would hope.
Other big trailer reveals include Colby Minifie’s Virginia conspiring to place a bounty on Morgan’s head, while Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) and Strand (Colman Domingo) find themselves held captive at Lawton. Even if some of its later seasons haven’t been quite so well-received, the marketing teams behind every trailer really know how to sell the horror and dread within the series.
During the Walking Dead panel, co-showrunner Ian Goldberg announced that that big changes are coming to the show’s format:
“Tonally, I think you can probably tell from watching the trailer – it is going be a darker season… The other thing we’re really excited about is that we’re going to have an anthology structure to the episodes, where we get to deep dive into exactly what these characters are going through within Virginia’s communities, within the style of episodes we’ve done in the past that we’ve loved… You’re going to see a lot more of that kind of storytelling in season six.”
The Comic-Con@Home panel also revealed that the first half of Fear of the Walking Dead will resume on Sunday, October 11 at 9pm EST with episodes shot and finished prior to the COVID-19 pandemic that has left the entertainment industry at a standstill. At this moment, it’s unclear when the second half of the season will continue production, let alone be released.
