Fans of “The Walking Dead” franchise will be excited that the companion show “Fear The Walking Dead” will be premiering its fifth season tonight on the AMC Network. I shared the trailer for the latest series HERE in case you missed it. Since I am so many episodes behind for the show I didn’t actually watch it myself if you can believe it. Anyway, here’s the poster, premise and some of the casting. Check it out.
The Premise: Set initially in Los Angeles, California and then later in Mexico, the series follows a dysfunctional, blended family composed of high school guidance counselor Madison Clark, her English teacher fiancé Travis Manawa, her daughter Alicia, her drug addict son Nick, Travis’s son from a previous marriage, Chris, Chris’s mother Liza Ortiz, and others who join their group at the onset of the apocalypse. They must reinvent themselves, learning new skills and adopting new attitudes in order to survive as civilization collapses around them.
The Cast and Characters:
Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia Clark
Colman Domingo as Victor Strand
Danay García as Luciana Galvez
Maggie Grace as Althea
Garret Dillahunt as John Dorie
Lennie James as Morgan Jones
Jenna Elfman as June / Naomi / Laura
Alexa Nisenson as Charlie
Karen David as Grace
PiercingMetal Thoughts: So as I’ve already noted, I’m a season and a half behind on the show and didn’t even watch the latest trailer based on that. I have to admit that I’ve gone to so many events these last few months that my binge-watching of the stuff I enjoy is really behind. The next plan of action for me is to see “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” but that might not be until this coming Wednesday. You might laugh at this but I never even finished the most recent season of “The Walking Dead” either. Anyway, that being said I wonder if you are still with this show or have decided to give this one a chance. I admit I didn’t like it at the onset but then was focused on it and enjoyed it more than the show that preceded it. Chime in your thoughts down below. See you next time.
