Season 8, as reported, will be broken down into two parts–with the first six episodes beginning May 14 and stretching into June, and the remaining half-dozen hitting the small screen at a yet-to-be-announced date later this year.
It was also learned that Michael E. Satrazemis–a veteran director on The Walking Dead franchise–is helming the series finale. The series is led by showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, alongside chief content officer Scott M. Gimple.
In this final season, Morgan, Madison and the others they brought to the island “are living under P.A.D.R.E.’s cynical rule,” according to the synopsis. “The task of reigniting belief in a better world rests with the person Morgan and Madison set out to rescue in the first place–Morgan’s daughter, Mo.”
The cast–led by the returning Kim Dickens and Lennie James–includes Colman Domingo, Ruben Blades, Danay Garcia, Jenna Elfman, Karen David, Mo Collins, Alexa Nisenson, Christrine Evangelista and Austin Arnelio.
