The eighth and final season of Fear The Walking Dead premiered on May 14, 2023, on AMC, with the episode titled “Remember What They Took from You”. As announced by the AMC network in January 2023, this season marks the finale of the spin-off series of The Walking Dead universe, created by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard.
This season will consist of 12 episodes divided into two parts: the first premiered on May 14, 2023, and the second will air later in the year.
Season 8 of Fear The Walking Dead continues with the consequences of the nuclear explosion that took place at the end of the previous season, which forced the protagonists to seek refuge in a place called PADRE, a community led by a mysterious character who seems to have hidden plans. Among the survivors are Morgan and Madison, two characters who come from The Walking Dead and who have played a key role in the development of the series.
The final season of Fear The Walking Dead has surprised with a seven-year time jump that brings the show closer to the timeline of its parent series, The Walking Dead. The season 8 premiere reveals what happened to Morgan, Madison, Mo, and the mysterious community of PADRE during the missing years.
– Morgan and Madison managed to rescue Mo from PADRE at the end of season 7, but they failed to escape from the island due to the dangerous swamps. They decided to return to PADRE and work for them.
– Mo, now known as Wren, grew up in PADRE believing that she was an orphan and that Teddy was her father figure. She became a skilled fighter and a loyal follower of PADRE’s philosophy of severing emotional attachments and preparing for a new world order.
– Grace also joined PADRE as a collector, but she kept her distance from Morgan and Mo. She felt guilty for what they were doing and hoped to find a way out someday.
In the first chapter of season 8 Morgan discovered that Wren was his adopted daughter and tried to convince her to leave PADRE with him and Grace. He also learned about Teddy’s plan and realized that they had to stop him before it was too late. Wren is now in conflict between her loyalty to Teddy and her curiosity about Morgan. We look forward to see what will happen in the next episodes and how Fear of The Walking Dead’s last season evolves.
