Warning: Article contains spoilers

Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg speak with THR about the “existential” crises that will define the coming episodes of the AMC zombie drama.

[This story contains spoilers for the season 4B premiere of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, “People Like Us.”]

The late Madison Clark (Kim Dickens) wanted her loved ones to live in a hopeful world — but after a half-season dedicated to violent vengeance, the people left in Madison’s wake have a few more storms to weather before they can realize her dream.

In “People Like Us,” the midseason premiere episode of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, viewers found themselves returning to an apocalyptic landscape where the disparate series regulars were as divided as ever. Despite living in close proximity to one another, the Fear characters are isolated into individual factions: Strand (Colman Domingo) and Luciana (Danay Garcia) are drunkenly holding down the fort at an abandoned mansion; Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) is unleashing her rage on walkers approaching the house’s perimeter; John Dorie (Garret Dillahunt) is recoving from wounds he sustained two episodes earlier while loving alongside Jenna Elfman’s June (previously known as Laura and Naomi), the two of them watching over Charlie (Alex Nisenson), the little girl who killed Frank Dillane’s Nick; Althea (Maggie Grace) is continuing to operate out of her heavily armed truck, searching for truth; and Morgan (Lennie James) is finally ready to head home.

Morgan’s desire to return to Alexandria defines much of the midseason premiere, as he’s come to accept that people are necessary for his survival and sanity. He tries to convince the others to come back to Alexandria with him, but is only successful in piquing Al’s interest. Before he and Al can start their road trip, however, other circumstances get in the way — namely, a massive storm, one that promises to leave untold amounts of emotional and physical devastation in its wake, not to mention a flying walker or two.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg stress the storm’s function as both a literal and existential threat for the cast of Fear the Walking Dead. Mother Nature serves as an adversary in the back half of the season, but there are other challenges on the way. In their conversation with THR, Chambliss and Goldberg weigh in on what to expect from the back half of their inaugural season, whether or not Morgan’s plan to go back to Alexandria will ever come to fruition, what they’ve learned from the fan reactions to Kim Dickens’ departure from the series, and more.

The first half of season four introduced major characters, and parted ways with some major original castmembers. What are your goals for the second half of the season?

Andrew Chambliss: The second half of season four is really about all of these characters grappling with the emotional and relationship fallout that came from the events of the finale, and the revelation that Madison’s death was all about protecting her family, protecting her community that she had built. The back half of the season is really about all the characters struggling with everything they did in the front half, particularly Alicia, Strand, and Luciana, who had been on a revenge mission. They’re coming to terms with the fact that, for a while, they had forgotten Madison’s philosophy and what she had sacrificed her life for. They’re going to be asking themselves how they can move forward. How they can make amends for everything they did. I think the biggest question that they’re going to be asking is: “What’s next?” When you spend so long seeking revenge and you finally put that aside, what comes next? And that question is something that the rest of the characters are also asking themselves. Morgan, who spent so long running from people thinking he couldn’t be connected to them, he’s now realized he can’t run away from human connection. He’s asking himself, “Where do I belong? Who do I belong with?” And we see John Dorie, June and Al asking all those same questions. The back half of the season is really going to be about grappling with all of these existential questions and these characters coming to a place where they realize what their purpose is going to be going forward.

As a backdrop to all of that, there’s a storm ravaging the season. How did you guys arrive at that as sort of the backdrop for the next several episodes and how does that underline the themes that you’re exploring?

Ian Goldberg: We’ve seen these characters come up against a lot of different adversaries over the course of the series, both walker and human, but one of the things that we’ve never seen them face is Mother Nature, especially on a scale like a hurricane. So, we approached it from a place of just wanting to explore an adversary like we hadn’t seen before, a new obstacle for these people to face. A hurricane is obviously a really difficult challenge to overcome in the world we live in, but in a post-apocalyptic zombie world, it’s even more challenging. It’s also kind of representative of the storm that is going on inside each of these characters. To speak to what Andrew was just talking about, there are questions of who they are, what their purpose is, who they’re going to be going forward. The storm represents that and it will present challenges for them in a lot of different ways. They’re going to be separated by the storm. They’re going to be facing the aftermath of what the storm has wrought on this landscape. It’s going to affect, as we’ll see, the walkers. We’re going to see the impact that a storm like this has on the walkers and just on the environment. It’s going to be quite a challenge for everyone.

Do you view the storm as the main antagonist for the second half of this season, or are there other characters like the Vultures that we should be keeping an eye out for?

Chambliss: The storm is the thing that makes the world a lot harder to live in, but there will be someone cropping up who is going to really test all our characters in ways that they didn’t expect and this antagonist — I don’t want to give away too much about who this person is — may know a lot more about our characters, or have insight into who they are, and what they’re going through in ways that our characters don’t even have.

Is this a returning figure or a new character altogether?

Goldberg: It could be either. We can promise you this person or persons will show up in the back half of the season.

How much time has passed between the midseason finale and the midseason premiere?

Chambliss: Not a lot of time. Probably a month or so. Just enough time for all of our characters to settle into their new existence. As we see in the premiere, when we find them, they’re all living in together in a sense, but not really together. We saw them all around that campfire at the end of the first half of the season and we thought that signified that this group had come together, but when we find them now, we see that they’ve kind of drifted apart both physically and emotionally.

When we catch up with him in the premiere, Morgan is gearing up to return to Alexandria. What brought him to that decision and why did that feel like the right idea to introduce in the back half of the season, teasing out the possibility of going back home?

Goldberg: Well, that’s a really interesting question, and it’s complex for Morgan. You know, when we saw him at the beginning of the season, he was in a place where he didn’t want to be around people at all. He left behind the people closest to him in Alexandria and set out on this solo journey believing that was the best way for him to live in this world. He’s in a very different place at the end of [the midseason finale]. He’s sitting around a campfire with people who had been strangers to him. Some had been friends, some had been foes and he’s not running from people anymore. In [the midseason premiere], we see that he’s looking to return to the place where he came from and, obviously, there’s a lot of history there for Morgan. There’s people that he cared very much about, that he left kind of abruptly, but we’re also going to see that there’s a much deeper reason for that for Morgan, an issue that he’s still struggling with emotionally that we’ll see unraveled over the course of the back half of the season. And that journey that Morgan takes is not going to be an easy one and there’s going to be a lot of detours along the way.

In the Comic-Con trailer, we saw Morgan with some familiar words scrawled out on his forehead: “I lose people, I lose myself.” Should we be worried about Morgan backsliding?

Chambliss: That’s certainly a fear that is driving Morgan. He has only [recently arrived at] this place where he feels settled emotionally, where he knows he needs to be with people, but I think a lot of the ghosts of his past are still in his mind and as we see him grapple with the question of why he feels like he needs to leave this group and go to Alexandria. He’s going to be grappling with a lot of the same fears that he had from his past.

How realistic is the return to Alexandria? Could Fear the Walking Dead and The Walking Dead both occupy that same physical space?

Goldberg: Our focus has been, obviously, on Fear the Walking Dead, and what we can tell you is that Morgan has a long, long journey to go on Fear the Walking Dead, and the journey that he speaks about in 409 about going to Alexandria is a part of it — but his arc on this show is far from over. He’s got a lot of emotional terrain to cover.

We see the cast scattered to the winds in this episode, separated into several different character combinations. How did you decide on who would pair up: John and Strand, for example?

Chambliss: One of the questions we asked when we were mapping out the back half of the season was looking at characters who had not had a lot of time onscreen together and who also had interesting emotional counterpoints to each other. I think we see a lot of that in 409. Al spent a lot of time with John Dorie and became close to him, as close as Al lets herself get to people. And now she finds herself with June, and June’s past has been always a bit of a mystery. She’s gone by the name Naomi. She’s gone by the name Laura. She’s gone by the name June. And this is something that is very hard for someone like Al to wrap her head around, someone who values the truth above all else. So, it felt like that was a really interesting pairing for this episode. Likewise, with Strand and Dorie, Dorie is someone who we’ve seen as an eternal optimist and Strand, as we’ve seen in the front half of the season, went through a very dark place where he questioned his own self-worth and why Madison had given him another chance. So, it seems like there’s a lot these two can learn from each other. If people keep watching, they’ll see that these aren’t the only pairings that we’re doing. We’re definitely trying to shake things up a little bit and see new sides of all our characters.

Next week’s episode is a showcase for Alycia Debnam-Carey. Is that indicative of the season’s structure, with each episode focusing on limited amounts of character and story?

Goldberg: What we like about the back half of this season is highlighting the different character pairings and seeing how people who have not spent as much time together are forced together under extreme circumstances. They’re dealing with their own sort of emotional demons, but also with the challenges that the hurricane has presented. There will be episodes that focus more on two characters. There will be some that focus more on the ensemble. It really just depends on the episode. One thing we’re excited about is there’ll be a lot of tonal variety in these episodes. There will be some that are very dark. There will be some that are sort of strange and darkly funny.

A musical episode?

Goldberg: I wouldn’t rule anything out. (Laughs.) What we like is that each episode can feel like its own movie. They have their own tone, and we really just strive for variety.

Aaron Stanford, Mo Collins, Daryl Mitchell and Stephen Henderson are on board for this next batch of episodes. What can you say about what these actors are bringing to the show and the new types of characters that you’re introducing into the apocalypse through these people?

Chambliss: We don’t want to give away too many details about the character specifics, but we will say one of the things that we’re so excited about with the new cas members who are joining for the back half of the season is what they bring to the show in terms of, as Ian was saying, variety. One of the things that is really important in the back half of the show is having moments of humor and lightness interspersed with this very bleak world that everyone is struggling to survive in and all those actors you mentioned bring something very different to the show and it really contributes to us pushing the boundaries of what we can do in the back half of the season.

We’re a couple months removed now from the finale. Do you guys have new takeaways about how it played out onscreen, in the story and the reactions to how Kim Dickens was written out?

Goldberg: We started out the season wanting to tell an emotional story about taking characters from a place of isolation to community and hopelessness to hope. We consider ourselves really fortunate that we got to tell that story and we’re really sort of pleased with how it all came together. We felt like on every level — in performance, in direction, just everything in that finale — it achieved the emotional quality that we wanted for this first eight episodes to have.

Chambliss: And it was all about telling an emotional story that sends Madison off in a way that her sacrifice is something that will really reverberate with our characters going forward, and that philosophy that she had is something that is really going to become a piece of the DNA of the show going forward.

Press: ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Episode 409 Q&A — Alycia Debnam-Carey (Alicia)

Warning: Interview contains spoilers for episode 409 “People Like Us”

Alycia Debnam-Carey, who plays Alicia on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, discusses how her character is healing and why she’s choosing to survive on her own now.

Q: Alicia tried to go off on her own before, thinking that being away from her family and friends was the best way to survive. Is any of that weighing on her now?

A: Yeah. We’ve seen Alicia go off on her own before and it reinforces the idea that she is better off on her own. The only thing that brought her back last time was her connection to her family – her mother and her brother – and she doesn’t have that anymore, so why should she be responsible for anybody else?… I think she’s feels better not being around people.

Q: Is there an underlying reason for Alicia seeking out the person soliciting help at the lumber yard?

A: I think Alicia being fixated on trying to save other people is part of her trying to redeem herself and make up for all the wrong she has done and the killing she was a part of. This is her attempting to balance that out again and find the core of who she was and who she used to like, which was someone who was compassionate and loving and caring and hopeful. She also wants to pay homage to her mother’s legacy, which is to go out and find people and save them. That’s what they did at the baseball stadium. They went out on missions to get people who were on the brink of destruction and death and brought them in… She’s become fixated on the idea that this will fix her and make her better.

Q: What’s it like for her once she does arrive at the yard and realizes it’s too late?

A: When she sees that the person has already turned, that’s a big blow for her. She can’t win. It confirms how much she’s failed and that she can’t do what her mother did or be the person she used to be… Things will never be the same for her.

Q: Is Morgan’s decision to go back “home” another loss to process?

A: There’s a connection between Morgan and Alicia, but at the same time, she’s not open enough to receive any of the help he’s trying to give her. For Alicia, this is just another example of how you can’t rely on anyone. I don’t think it’s a disappointment, but it’s something that catches her off guard. She’s at a depressed point. She’s beyond disappointment and hurt… You can’t count on anyone. Morgan is saying that you can count on people, but she’s holding a mirror up to him and showing him that he’s no different from anybody else.

Q: Where does she find the courage to go on? What’s fueling her now?

A: We’re seeing a new version of her. We’re seeing her completely untethered to any family and completely on her own. She’s trying to like the person that she once was and come to terms with her existence and perhaps honor her mother. Part of her is trying to process this grief and this loss. She doesn’t know what’s next. She’s been talked down from death and destroying other people’s lives and killing people, but I don’t think she knows what is next. I’m not sure she has hope or love yet. She doesn’t like herself. She’s not ready to tackle being with other people. Part of her journey is definitely to try to translate what her life will now mean.

Press: ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Is a Proper Horror Movie Now as It Prepares for the Zombie-nado

Warning: Article contains spoilers

The midseason premiere on AMC splits up the main cast in interesting new ways as an approaching storm brings sideways rain and flying zombies.

Huge props to the folks behind AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” for exploring something we haven’t seen yet on either show, giving us the most accessible and exciting premiere the franchise has had in years.

The first half of this season was a mishmash of ideas coming together, with Morgan (Lennie James) coming over from the parent series, a bunch of new characters showing up and the reintroduction of the original cast in starkly different iterations. On top of that, it played around with time making it an even more complex narrative.

After the midseason finale, though, “FTWD” has been stripped down to its new core, and with this premiere it felt very much like the opening act of a proper horror film, establishing the characters and their relationships, pairing them up in new and interesting ways, all the while teasing the hell that is about to break loose.

What makes this even more fun is that the hell is as simple as a massive storm. We’re talking the kind that has local weathermen taking off their jackets and rolling up their sleeves to report on it, only there are no more weathermen. Instead, there are flying zombies.

Admittedly, the special effects team wasn’t completely successful in selling the visuals of the zombies being tossed around by the coming storm, but they did a good enough job to get us excited about the chaos to come.

No matter how great Morgan and Althea (Maggie Grace) and Luciana (Danay Garcia) and Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) might be at killing zombies, nobody is great in the middle of a Midwestern thunderstorm when it decides to start dropping high-speed winds and rotating clouds, as we see in the new intro sequence to the show.

Everything was about setting up the storm to come in this episode, with all the foreshadowing you’d expect to see in a classic horror film; clues that we in the audience get to see and then yell at the characters on-screen for missing!

Going Our Separate Ways?

The clear indication that some calamity was coming was how fragmented everyone had become in the aftermath of that bloody midseason finale that closed the chapter on the Vultures, the stadium and Madison Clark (Kim Dickens). Morgan making the rounds to announce he was leaving tomorrow to head back to Virginia was the classic setup that getting to tomorrow was going to be the real challenge.

The rest of the opening minutes revealed that John (Garret Dillahunt) and June (Jenna Elfman) had set up house with Charlie (Alexa Nisenson) in a school bus on a barricaded bridge, while Victor (Colman Domingo) and Luciana (Danay Garcia) were utterly despondent, living in an abandoned mansion. Victor was drinking himself into a stupor, while Luciana wiled away her hours listening to music and questioning her place in the world.

And then there’s Alicia, every bit her mother’s daughter, going on an ultimately fruitless quest to save a man trapped in a lumber mill. But it’s not about saving the man so much as it is about trying to hate herself and her own recent actions a little less by doing some atonement. That’s why she lashes out at the guy for dying before she could save him.

New Pairings

Horror films love to split everyone up into smaller groups so we can feel more of the tension as they each struggle to survive the terror. And so we have Morgan chasing Alicia, Luciana chasing a runaway Charlie while Victor and John look for her. Meanwhile, Al and June were headed upstream to figure out why zombies were washing into the river only to get trapped in Al’s truck on the road.

Eight cast-members paired off into unique pairings we’ve not really had a chance to explore yet, offering an opportunity to explore new character developments and dynamics, while looking at the coming storm and its dangers through vastly different lenses.

Victor is drunk and John is still recovering from his injuries, making the vulnerable. Luciana holds a lot of animosity toward Charlie, who remains a silent enigma, so that pairing should create plenty of tension. Al will likely prove very beneficial to June finally becoming comfortable in her own skin, while Morgan and Alicia will discover they are more alike than either would probably like to admit.

The Calm

It was a quiet episode, but if we think of this back half of the season like it’s an eight-hour movie, we’re just getting past the establishing scenes. One of the things that is remarkable about the episode and makes it feel so fresh and exciting is that there are no characters introduced beyond the eight remaining cast-members.

The only new “character” they have to contend with so far is the coming storm. And while that’s not likely to remain the case throughout its entire eight-episode run — as that’s a lot of screen time to fill with flying zombies — it created a beautifully serene foundation on which to build the rests of the story.

Probably the box filled with supplies and labeled “Take what you need, leave what you don’t” will come into play later, as it’s not like these shows to drop something interesting like that into a premiere without a payoff down the line. Whoever left that box will surely crop up, though on whose side remains to be seen.

We also finally started to get more of the promise that this show would have a little more humor than its parent series, with most of it coming from Dillahunt’s fantastically pure and idealistic John. This week, when asked if he thought his cabin would even still be there, he shot back, “I locked the door before I left.”

The new and improved “Fear the Walking Dead” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC.

After a mid-season summer vacation, AMC‘s Fear the Walking Dead returned on Sunday night riding high off of the strong positive reaction to the fourth season. By killing two main characters, introducing several new survivors, and transitioning Lennie James‘s Morgan from The Walking Dead to Fear the Walking Dead, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have done a quality job of introducing new viewers to the FTWD “universe” while not abandoning the loyal fanbase (though they may not have always liked every decision they made).

But when the series resumed, things appear even more tense, distant, and hopeless than they did during the season’s first half. Grief, distrust, and fear have created situations that our survivors are going to be forced to deal with if they’re to survive — each other and the storm.

Fear the Walking Dead s04e10 ‘Close Your Eyes’: Alicia’s forced to reckon with an agonizing past while seeking refuge from a storm.

With storm clouds gathering around — and among — our survivors, here’s a look at what viewers can expect from the fourth season of AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead:

The first half of season four began with one figure huddled around a campfire, and ended with nine. Characters who started their journeys in isolation collided with each other in unexpected ways and found themselves in one of the last places they ever expected to be…together.

In the back half of the season they will explore who they are now – as individuals and as part of the greater group – and how they will forge ahead. They will find themselves pitted against new adversaries – human, walker, and even nature itself. Theirs will be a journey wrought with danger, love, heartbreak, loss, and ultimately, hope.

Press: ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ Bosses Tease How Show Moves on After Shock Character Death

Warning: Contains spoilers for Fear the Walking Dead season 4 episode 8 ‘No One’s Gone’

In the shocking events of mid-season finale of Fear the Walking Dead, Madison (Kim Dickens) bravely sacrificed herself at the stadium to ensure everyone else could escape.

Our heroes lost their leader, with Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey) being the only remaining character to have been in the show since the start.

Could another character step in as the series’ lead to fill this Madison-shaped hole? The first episode, ‘People Like Us’, suggested that Morgan (Lennie James) was set to become the focus of the second half of the season.

With the show returning last night (August 12), showrunner Andrew Chambliss told Syfy Wire that there would be no replacement for Madison. The second half of season 4 will instead focus on how the stadium group cope after losing their leader and abandoning their quest for vengeance.

Chambliss said: “The back half of this season has all of our characters asking themselves… ‘What do we do to move forward? Who are we to each other? How can we come back from all these really dark things we did?’

“We really view this as an ensemble show, and we’re going to be telling stories throughout the back half of the season that will focus on different characters grappling with those existential questions in different ways.

“It’s really going to be finding all these characters who, at the end of the midseason finale, were sitting around a campfire, seemingly together, really asking themselves what is it that holds them together now that they’ve put revenge behind them, now that they no longer have Madison as the leader of the stadium.”

Madison’s exit has been just as difficult for cast members as it has been for viewers. Colman Domingo, who plays Strand, recently spoke about how it felt to be one of the few remaining actors to have been with the show since season 1 after Madison and Nick (Frank Dillane) were written out.

“I mean, just imagine losing two of your core in one season, and we found out right before we started,” he said. “You’re losing someone that you’re used to working with all the time, and that you enjoy working with so much.

“But you also understand the nature of it, and understand the storytelling. It’s a lot of things to process, because you also have to process new people coming in at the same time…

“I’ll be very honest with you, the first couple months in our season, we were all doing a balancing act, trying to figure it all out together. It required intense amounts of grace, and patience, and frustration, and being honest about your feelings.”
