The fear is building.
Fear the Walking Dead–the popular spinoff of AMC’s long-running The Walking Dead zombie series–has started shooting its upcoming eighth season, according to a report on comicbook.com.
The series–led by showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, alongside chief content officer Scott M. Gimple–welcomes back Kim Dickens and Lennie James as leads. The rest of the Season 8 cast includes Colman Domingo, Ruben Blades, Danay Garcia, Jenna Elfman, Karen David, Mo Collins, Alexa Nisenson, Christine Evangelista and Austin Amelio.
Executive producer and director Michael E. Satrazemis said the upcoming season–which does not yet have a debut date–will “reinvent” the show a bit. “Getting a new palette to work with–visually–and a lot of that kind of low-country, beach areas as a background, that’s something our characters will navigate,” he said. “I think that’s enough before I get into trouble.”
Chambliss added that the plot thread they are really excited about “is the promise of that final scene between Madison and Morgan in the Season 7 finale when they partner up to take down this monolithic force known as P.A.D.R.E. We’re excited about these two iconic TWD characters teamed up to bring down this nefarious group.”
