Much has been made about all the changes coming to Fear the Walking Dead in Season 4. New showrunners, new tone, new characters played by recognizable actors like Jenna Elfman and Garret Dillahunt, and of course the arrival of Morgan (Lennie James) from The Walking Dead. But what about the folks who are coming back? The show already had a core group of characters, after all.
TV Guide has the first Season 4 photos of returning characters Alicia Clark (Alycia Debnam-Carey), Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) and Luciana Galvez (Danay Garcia). That means anyone worried that Alicia and Strand didn't survive the dam explosion in the Season 3 finale can rest easy.
It will be particularly interesting to see how Luciana's return plays out. Luciana, who was Nick Clark's (Frank Dillane) girlfriend, slipped off in the night early last season in search of a friend in Mexicali, since she didn't see a future for herself at the Broke Jaw Ranch. She made a brief appearance in Madison's (Kim Dickens) dream sequence in the season finale, but really she's been gone for a while. We're very curious to find out how she found Alicia and Strand again.
In keeping with the show's reinvention, the characters look a little different now. Season 4 will shift the action to Texas, and it looks like the formerly all-business Strand has picked up a new hipster wardrobe to blend in with his Austin surroundings. He looks like his indie band is playing at SXSW. We're into it.
Check 'em out.
Fear the Walking Dead Season 4 premieres Sunday, April 15 at 10/9c, after the Season 8 finale of The Walking Dead.
