Fear the Walking Dead season 7 trailer is full of zombies and radiation


The seventh season of Fear the Walking Dead, the companion series to the soon-to-end The Walking Dead, will begin airing on AMC on October 17th – or if you have access to the AMC+ service, you’ll be able to watch episodes a week early, beginning one month from today, October 10th. In anticipation of Fear the Walking Dead‘s season 7 debut, a trailer has been released online and can be seen above.

While I used to review every episode of both The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead here on Arrow in the Head, I have fallen a bit behind on the shows since the review series ended. I still haven’t watched season 6 of Fear, but I am aware that multiple nuclear warheads were detonated in the season finale – and the characters will obviously be dealing with the fallout of those explosions in the new season.


Fear the Walking Dead season 7 will consist of sixteen episodes. The series stars Lennie James, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Maggie Grace, Colman Domingo, Danay Garcia, Austin Amelio, Mo Collins, Alexa Nisenson, Karen David, Christine Evangelista, Colby Hollman, Jenna Elfman, Keith Carradine, and Ruben Blades. AMC has announced that actress / director Aisha Tyler, who directed an episode of the show in season 6, is joining the cast in an unspecified role for this new season.

This series is executive produced by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, along with David Alpert, Greg Nicotero, Gale Anne Hurd, Scott Gimple, and showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg. Chambliss and Goldberg have been in charge of Fear the Walking Dead since the show’s fourth season, where they shook things up in a major way by killing off lead characters, moving the show’s timeline forward several years, and bringing The Walking Dead character Morgan (James) into the mix.

I had issues with Fear the Walking Dead from the start, but I did like the show better before Chambliss and Goldberg took over. (I thought season 3 was the best the show has ever gotten.) It’s not what it used to be, but I will be catching up on season 6 and watching whatever comes next.
