Fear the Walking Dead season 8 premiere
In the season 7 finale, fan-favorite Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) returned and she encounters Morgan Jones (Lennie James). Madison was working as a collector for the organization known as PADRE, discovered to be in the business of kidnapping children for a yet-to-be-revealed reason. Morgan’s daughter Mo was one of these children. Madison eventually agrees to assist Morgan in rescuing Mo, and they were last seen in a boat that would take them to PADRE.
Season 8 of Fear the Walking Dead will experience a seven-year time jump that will see all of the survivors residing at PADRE but the conditions there are less than desirable.
