Lincoln, while speaking with Comic Book, seemingly hints that "The Walking Dead" Season 8 premiere will be big, considering that the upcoming season will open up on the 100th episode of the show.

Along with the key artwork for Season 3, AMC has confirmed via an official press release that Fear the Walking Dead will return for Season 4.

AMC's "Fear the Walking Dead" will come back for season 3 and 4 but with a different set of showrunners.

"Showrunner Scott Gimple has teased Season 8 will get deeper into the politics of how these communities interact with war in the air, and the fight for a free civilization itself". Entertainment One manages all global television and home entertainment sales for the show outside of North America and the AMC channels globally. The poster's wording is also strong: "Fear what you become" is a clear nod to Nick's change of heart in the course of the two previous seasons of Fear the Walking Dead.

When they turned their backs on Rick Grimes and the people of Alexandria in the season 7 finale, many fans probably thought this group would be bodies to die in the battle against The Saviors which had been building up. Say a hearty welcome to Steven Ogg's Simon, Katelyn Nacon who plays Enid, and the Scavengers trash queen herself, Jadis played by Pollyanna McIntosh.

Although it wasn't a surprise for Ogg and Nacon to get promoted to series regulars, Blastr said McIntosh's promotion was "interesting".

Ogg's Simon is the right-hand man of Savoirs leader Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Led by Jadis, their unusual way of talking and living was unlike anything seen on the hit AMC zombie drama before.

Season 8 will pick up amidst the war between Rick's alliance and The Saviors.

Elsewhere, in Season 3 of "Fear The Walking Dead, " Ofelia (Mercedes Mason) needs to muster the savagery of her father if she wants to survive.
