Fear the Walking Dead is a pioneer in The Walking Dead universe for being the first spinoff series in the universe. Throughout its seven seasons, the series has seen many changes in the cast of characters and location. Fear the Walking Dead began airing its eighth and final season in May 2023, with the last six episodes premiering in October.

During the season 7 finale, viewers saw the return of fan-favorite Madison Clark, portrayed by Kim Dickens. This wasn’t a surprise, as Dickens announced on an episode of Talking Dead early in the season. The true surprise of season 7 was the departure of long-time character Alicia Clark, played by Alycia Debnam-Carey.  The mother-daughter reunion fans were eager to see never took place as Alicia departed from the group one episode before Madison’s return.

The upcoming season moved filming from Austin, Texas, to Savannah, Georgia, which will also see a change in location for the storyline.  This was set up in the penultimate episode of season 7 as our survivors took to the water to locate a new, safe place to live.

The first part of the eighth season experienced a seven-year time jump and the fall of PADRE. The second part of the season featured the return of Troy Otto (Daniel Sharman).
