With new faces signing on as series regular, there are also more details about Fear the Walking Dead leaving the border for the Great State of Texas.

It would seem that Fear the Walking Dead’s storyline at the border has come to an end. After spending season 1 trying to get to Mexico, trying to survive in Mexico throughout season 2, and trying to settle at the border in season 3 the Fear the Walking Dead franchise is packing its bags and heading to Texas.

So it seems.

According to reports, filming is set to move to Texas for season 4 under new showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg. Scott M. Gimple assumes executive producer credits on season 4, so moving the production closer to Georgia is probably helpful.

Despite many outlets still using the terms “prequel” and “little sister” to The Walking Dead, Fear is a companion series. However, the chain of events in Fear started from before the zombie apocalypse began, meaning before Rick woke up. This is key because there is a lot of speculation that the franchise crossover will feature Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) who was in Texas with his family when the world ended. It’s that kind of timeline finagling that makes it possible to a beloved (and dead) character to return as a potential series regular until he moves on to join up with The Walking Dead timeline.

With the Proctors heading to Texas, moving the story along the southern border makes sense. There’s not much more to do in the show’s current location because just about everything has been blown up or destroyed at this point. (Technically, we don’t know who survived the season finale)
