Our group of survivors is out to make the world a (slightly) better place and is set to cross paths with familiar and not-so-familiar faces alike.

With the arrival of a new trailer, we finally know when Fear the Walking Dead will return for its fifth season and what lies ahead for our band of survivors, led by main series crossover character Morgan. Season 5 will kick off this summer on Sunday, June 2nd, the same day AMC is debuting its NOS4A2 miniseries based on the novel by Joe Hill.
Front and center are a number of returning characters who are making it their mission to connect with other people and help them out in any way they can. The group has adopted Morgan’s mission to keep hope alive and put their faith in others to survive in this post-apocalyptic world together.
Two intriguing reunions also underscore this new trailer, which features the return of Daniel Salazar as well as the introduction of the series’ next crossover character, Dwight, who exited The Walking Dead this past season and is immediately recognized by Morgan towards the end of the above trailer.
We previously learned that former Vulture Charlie, played by Alexa Nisenson, has been promoted to series regular status with Once Upon a Time's Karen David coming on board for her own recurring role. They will be joined by Lennie James' Morgan Jones and another crossover character with Austin Amelio's Dwight moving over from the main series as well.
In addition, it was previously reported that Ruben Blades and Daniel Sharman would be returning to reprise their roles of Daniel Salazar and Troy Otto respectively. The spinoff series is still very much in a transition phase after it ditched most of its original cast, leaving behind only Alicia Clark and a handful of newer additions along the way.

The Walking Dead Ending is the Most Exciting Thing About the Show Since It Began
