Following the network’s big “NOS4A2” announcement yesterday at WonderCon, AMC released a “Fear the Walking Dead: Season 5” trailer for fans of the show. AMC confirmed this weekend that “Fear the Walking Dead” and “NOS4A2” will premiere on June 2nd, so sci-fi and thriller fans will want to set a reminder to catch the two premieres.

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. In the new season, Morgan Jones (James) leads the group with a philosophy rooted in benevolence, community and hope. Their mission of helping others will be put to the ultimate test when the group finds themselves in uncharted territory, one which will force them to face not just their pasts but also their fears.
AMC teased the story adding, “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.”

“Fear the Walking Dead” hosted a panel at WonderCon earlier today, which featured series stars Lennie James, Colman Domingo, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Danay Garcia, Garret Dillahunt, Maggie Grace, Jenna Elfman, Alexa Nisenson and new crossover character Austin Amelio. Executive producers and showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg were also at the event, along with executive producer Scott M. Gimple and director Michael Satrazemis.

“Fear remains one of the most successful dramas on cable with a passionate fanbase who we think will love NOS4A2, a suspenseful and electrifying character drama set against the back drop of supernatural horror. We anticipate the audience overlap will be strong,” said Sarah Barnett, President of AMC Networks Entertainment Group, yesterday during the “NOS4A2” panel. “Showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg brilliantly reinvented Fear in its fourth season to much critical acclaim and we can’t wait to share with those fans what they have in store for Season 5. Likewise, NOS4A2 showrunner Jami O’Brien and her incredible writing team have created something we didn’t know we needed until now – a perfectly unmissable intertwining of horror and Christmas.”
