Actress Alycia Debnam-Carey portrayed Alicia Clark on Fear the Walking Dead from the pilot episode until the penultimate episode of season 7. Her departure disappointed fans of the series as she has long been a fan favorite. Debnam-Carey was ready to move on and pursue new projects and will next be seen in the Hulu series Saint X.
The new Hulu series is directed by Darren Grant (Millions) and Dee Rees (Mudbound), who also executive produces. The series was written by Leila Gerstein, known for The Handmaid’s Tale and Hart of Dixie, and is based on the 2020 bestselling novel by Alexis Schaitkin.
Debnam-Carey joined the cast as Emily after Victoria Pedretti (You) separated from the series early in 2022. She portrays Emily as an ambitious woman whose life appears perfect from the outside and begins to crumble.
The actress shared the first look photos on Instagram.
