Earlier this year, it was announced that Austin Amelio's Dwight will be taking a cue from Lennie James and crossing over into Fear the Walking Dead. Much like the character of Morgan Jones moved over from The Walking Dead for Season 4, Dwight wrapped up his business on the main series and will be making a similar move for Season 5, continuing his storyline elsewhere.
Dwight is a character with a major connection to the main story of The Walking Dead as well as the comic book series, where he was introduced as part of the Saviors to eventually turn on Negan and help bring the All Out War arc to its conclusion. He has gone on to be a part of a number of other plots in the comics but it remains to be seen how many of those might play out if this crossover happens to be a full-time one in the same vein that Morgan's was. We last left off with Dwight being exiled from Alexandria, which could very well mean that this move will be a full-time one.
Although Fear the Walking Dead does not yet have a premiere date, AMC has released the first batch of photos from the upcoming new season, which you can have a look at below.
Fear the Walking Dead will return for its fifth season sometime in 2019. Last year, it premiered its fourth season immediately following The Walking Dead's Season 8 finale in April, but there is no official word yet on whether the timing will play out similarly this time around. As usual, stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all of the latest on these shows and more.
