Even if you’re not caught up on Fear The Walking Dead, you can still enjoy the season 4 premiere after The Walking Dead season 8 finale on April 15, 2018,

April 15th is going to be a big day for fans of the undead. Not only are viewers going to be treated to the big season 8 finale of The Walking Dead but they also get the season 4 premiere episode of Fear The Walking Dead.

Sadly, there are a lot of fans out there who either gave up on Fear The Walking Dead early during the show’s run or never really gave the program a shot and may not be caught up for season 4 and be uninterested in watching on “Survival Sunday”.

Admittedly, I was concerned about this as well. Even though I am a huge fan of season 3, I was afraid that many others would watch the season 8 finale of The Walking Dead and tune out when Fear The Walking Dead started.

Those concerns went out the window after watching an advance screener of episode 401 titled ‘What’s Your Story?’ provided to Undead Walking by AMC.

The new setting, new characters, and addition of Morgan Jones will give the show an entirely new voice and tone without detracting from the characters and dynamics that made season 3 such an amazing entry into the series.

Considering the way season 3 ended with the characters split up and the dam exploding, it wouldn’t make sense to reveal immediately how or if the survivors got together and how they are surviving.

Instead, the focus of the season 4 premiere goes to these new characters played by Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, and Jenna Elfman and how their stories could impact the franchise going forward, especially with the challenge of trying to tell a logical story as to how Morgan (played by Lennie James) fits into the entire situation.

That’s not to say that the core characters that have built Fear The Walking Dead to what it is will be pushed to the wayside in favor of the new faces. In fact, the desire to see how they will all interact with each other is what should draw people into the season 4 premiere episode more than anything else.

All this adds up to a season 4 premiere that will add up to an easily accessible to any fan of zombie drama shows airing directly after a show that millions of people will be watching anyway.

If you aren’t planning on watching the season 4 premiere of Fear The Walking Dead on April 15, 2018, please reconsider. You would be missing the start of a new chapter in the zombie survival drama franchise, and it would be a shame not to give the show another shot with such a great opportunity to jump back into the undead apocalypse.
