Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 Release Date, Cast, and Important Update

The seventh season of Fear the Walking Dead concluded with some pretty terrifying revelations, one of which was that Madison had not only been alive the entire time but had also been working for PADRE, taking infants from their caring parents in order to provide them with what she thought would be better protected from the state of the world.

On August 23, 2015, Fear the Walking Dead had its debut. On October 17, 2021, the seventh season of the current show debuted. Since the fourth season, Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have taken over as the show’s directors in place of the previous three’s showrunner, Erickson. Fear the Walking Dead season 8 was announced in December 2021.

Naturally, there are many inquiries from viewers wondering how the tale will develop in Fear the Walking Dead season 8 now that Madison is back, baby Mo has been abducted, and the duo is on their way to reclaim her. Here’s everything we know about Fear the Walking Dead season 8.

Fear the Walking Dead was renewed by AMC for a further season in December 2021, along with the unexpected news that Madison will once again be played by Kim Dickens. “I’ve had the secret probably this whole year,” Kim said.

In April, Fear the Walking Dead co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss revealed to Decider that the AMC program’s creators and producers were “in the planning phases” for Season 8. “So of course, given our move, the story is being constructed with that in mind in terms of the locations we’re writing to,” he added. “You’ll see this is further down in Season 7, but the end of Season 7 was written with the move in mind. So the narrative is geared towards the change of location as well.”

Seasons are now divided into two sections according to a recent change in the show’s structure.

Since that time, the first episode has always aired in the fall, and part two is broadcast again in the spring. Therefore, it is probable that season eight will follow suit if the production trend remains.

This indicates that season eight will probably premiere in the autumn of 2022, and part two will probably follow in the spring of 2023.

Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 Plot

Let’s talk about all the plotlines Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 will bring.

Morgan’s Survival and Baby Mo

The initial encounter between Morgan and Madison was unpleasant. While saving his life, she also grabbed Mo and brought the baby girl to Padre, a safe haven. Fans who are familiar with Morgan are aware that he won’t flinch or give in.

Additionally, it would make sense to have someone else take the helm since Morgan repeatedly avoided death on Fear the Walking Dead. It’s a theory that has a good chance of being confirmed.

Will Madison Survive?

Despite the fact that fans had numerous speculations regarding Madison’s return to Fear the Walking Dead and previously knew she would be returning, the fact that she needed oxygen to survive after suffering significant lung damage in the stadium fire came as a surprise to viewers. She received this oxygen from PADRE in return for working for them, which comprised kidnapping infants and young toddlers.

Will she succumb to her illness or will she make it out alive?

Where is Alicia?

Alicia’s health led Morgan to believe that she didn’t have much time left, even if he did acknowledge that he did not see her death. Alicia is a warrior, so it’s feasible that she’ll make a brief appearance in season 8 to officially bid her farewell and end off her tale.

Sherry and Dwight

Fingers crossed, I’m hoping they finally have a happy family- will Fear the Walking Dead Season 8 see another baby?

Is Victor Compassionate Now?

The last episode featured a clearly upset Victor, who was tormented by the person he had become and the things he had done while attempting to convince Alicia that he was capable of bringing about a better world. But when he went above and above to save her, that’s when he revealed his true self. As her last words to the longtime friend and maybe ever, Alicia responded in kind by professing her love for him.

Will keep his word when he said he would look for the others? Most significant, though, is whether the others will believe in him enough to support any strategy he may have.

My Favorite Plotline- The Victor-Madison Reunion

The former closeness between them makes me believe in a joyful reunion. However, Victor ultimately betrayed Alicia. Will Madison learn about this along with everything else Victor had done that was horrible, and will she be able to forgive him? Madison probably has the most experience with the guilt Victor feels because of the things she has done as well.
