AMC has released the first trailer for Fear the Walking Dead season 5, which shuffles its way on to AMC on June 2. It’s a lengthy trailer with some legitimate reveals, but boiled down the gist seems to be that doing genuinely kind and good things in the zombie apocalypse will most likely get you killed. Sound advice!
But no, the trailer also reveals the return of two familiar faces. First, Rubén Blades‘ Daniel Salazar, not seen since the dam explosion that closed out season 3’s finale, “Sleigh Ride.” And then there’s Austin Amelio‘s Dwight popping up at the tail-end of the trailer, which isn’t technically a return to the series, but it is the first time we’ve seen the character’s face since The Walking Dead‘s season 8 finale, “Wrath.”
Fear the Walking Dead also stars Lennie James, Colman Domingo, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, and Alexa Nisenson. Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg serve as showrunners.
Check out the trailer below.
Here’s the official synopsis for Fear the Walking Dead season 5:
In Fear the Walking Dead Season 5, the group’s mission is clear: locate survivors and help make what’s left of the world a slightly better place. With dogged determination, Morgan Jones (James) leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Each character believes that helping others will allow them to make up for the wrongs of their pasts. But trust won’t be easily earned. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when our group finds themselves in unchartered territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears. It is only through facing those fears that the group will discover an entirely new way to live, one that will leave them forever changed.
