Calling all Dead heads!
This weekend, AMC announced that Fear the Walking Dead will return for its Season 5 premiere on Sunday, June 2 and revealed the first trailer for the new season during a cast and creative panel at WonderCon that included Lennie James, Colman Domingo, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson, Austin Amelio, surprise guest Ruben Blades, executive producers and showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, executive producer Scott M. Gimple, and director Michael Satrazemis.
The trailer features the long-awaited return of Blades' Daniel Salazar, as well as the moment The Walking Dead crossover characters Morgan (James) and Dwight (Amelio) see each other again, both having headed west from what used to be the D.C. area.
AMC also revealed that FTWD's premiere episode would be immediately followed with the first episode of NOS4A2, its book-to-screen adaptation of Joe Hill's horror novel of the same name. The first trailer for the series — which stars Ashleigh Cummings, Zachary Quinto, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Jahkara Smith — was also unveiled.
Buckle up, folks. From the looks of these two trailers, we're all in for some very scary Sundays this summer.
Fear the Walking Dead Season 5 premieres on AMC on Sunday, June 2 at 9/8c. NOS4A2 premieres just after that episode at 10/9c.
