EW released exclusive character photos from season 4 of Fear The Walking Dead introducing the new characters debuting this season.
Entertainment Weekly released exclusive new character photos introducing some of the new characters that are joining Fear The Walking Dead in season 4.
It was previously revealed that Morgan Jones, from The Walking Dead, would be crossing over to Fear The Walking Dead in season 4. Some fans thought this meant that at some point in his backstory Morgan traveled to Texas, where Fear is currently shooting.
But based on the photo released by EW it looks like Fear TWD is going to have a time jump. The Morgan Jones in this photo has a sharpened spear and traveling gear similar to what Morgan has had since season 6 of The Walking Dead.
It’s possible that Morgan wandered to Texas before finding Rick in Virginia, but a time jump putting the two shows at about the same time period would make more sense. The most likely scenario is that after All Out War is over Morgan leaves Rick and the others and head to Texas, where he apparently finds one of the new characters on Fear The Walking Dead, Althea. Althea is a new character played by Maggie Grace.
Other New Characters
Garret Dillahunt, who once auditioned to play Negan on The Walking Dead, is joining Fear The Walking Dead as John. Co-showrunner Ian Goldberg said that John:
"“is a man of fascinating contradictions. He loves people but has spent a great deal of time on his own. He’s a gentle soul — an innocent in many ways — but is no stranger to violence. He can be soft-spoken and disarmingly funny all at once.”"
The last new main character joining Fear The Walking Dead in season 4 is Naomi, played by Jenna Elfman. According to EW the co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss describes Naomi as guarded:
"“She’ll have her guard up as she crosses paths with Madison and her family, and — as we’ll learn over the course of the season — she’ll have a very good reason for keeping people at a distance. Even so, she’ll end up developing some connections that surprise her, including a bond with Alicia.”"
It’s probably a good idea for everyone to keep their guard up around Madison, considering her history. The 4th season of Fear The Walking Dead is filming now and should debut early this summer.
