Change is Coming to Fear the Walking Dead
Robert Kirkman discusses what's in store for the new season and beyond.

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman tells Entertainment Weekly that major changes are coming to AMC's companion spin-off series, Fear the Walking Dead. The show is entering its fourth season in April and already made waves with the announcement that Lennie James is joining the cast with his character Morgan Jones crossing over from the original series. According to Kirkman, such a move has been planned since the beginning, though it wasn't decided that Morgan would be that character until more recently.[blockquote-0]
Kirkman felt that the faster pace and new elements from last season set the tone for ramping up to an even bigger shake-up for season 4. The addition of Morgan is going to give the characters a new dynamic, but the goal is to change the story in an interesting way that will keep things fresh.[blockquote-1]
The next season of Fear the Walking Dead premieres on April 15th. Personally, I'm all for these changes. My interest in the show kind of fell off after the first two seasons, but it just might be worth catching up and getting back into it. The new approach and debut of Morgan just might be enough to get me interested again. Any Fear watchers here? Let us know your thoughts on the new season in the comments below.[relatedArticle-0]
