Fear the Walking Dead is quickly running through part 1 of its 12-episode final season. The midseason 8 finale airs on June 18, and viewers are anxious to see what’s to come in a season that is hands down better than the previous. Deadline reports that actor Isha Blaaker has been added to the cast for season 8.
Ian Goldberg and Andrew Chambliss have served as showrunners for the series since season 4, and continue in the final season. After a tepid response to season 7, no one was surprised that Fear the Walking Dead would end with season 8.
Even in the final season, new characters are introduced, and Isha Blaaker will portray a man named Frank. Details about the character have yet to be revealed because it is a pivotal recurring role.
The final season has experienced a seven-year time jump that finds most survivors living at PADRE, once considered a haven. At the end of season 7, Kim Dickens returned as fan favorite Madison Clark and shed light on the fact that PADRE was in the business of kidnapping children to raise and train for combat.
It is difficult to say what role Blaaker’s Frank will play; he could be a disgruntled father searching for his child abducted by PADRE, a member of PADRE, or something entirely different.
Isha Blaaker, what else does he star in?
Isha Blaaker is known for his roles in Tyler Perry’s A Madea Homecoming and his roles on the tv series Red Riding Hoods, Flight Attendants, and DNA.
Next, he will star in Caste, Ava DuVernay’s upcoming film adaptation of Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents. This film also stars Aunjanue Ellis, Niecy Nash, Nick Offerman, Finn Wittrock, and Victoria Pedretti.
