While we have been waiting for Season 7’s ‘The Walking Dead’ trailer to be released by AMC, ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ released the trailer for the second half of the show’s current season and it is probably the most bloody yet! This time everyone has split off into different groups, navigating their way through the unfamiliar Mexican desert terrain while also dealing with the constant threat of walkers in this still fresh, post-apocalyptic world.
We see Nick (Frank Dillone) figuring out his way on his own, blending into groups of walkers for survival while also dealing with the effects of exposure. We also see with Madison (Kim Dickens), Alicia (Alycia Debnam-Carey), Ofelia (Mercedes Mason) and Victor Strand (Colman Domingo) leave in a truck and, eventually, discover a hotel. Seeing them arrive at the hotel reminded me of Books 2 and 3 of the ‘As The World Dies’ zombie trilogy by Rhiannon Frater. If you’re not familiar with that series, it’s best to just not read it until after Season 2B of ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ is done airing. It may reveal possible spoiler scenarios. We also see Travis (Cliff Curtis) dealing with his son Chris (Lorenzo James Henrie) while they are off on their own, psychological breaks and all. Everyone appears to be going through their own struggles and it looks like no one is safe during the remainder of this season.
The official synopsis has also been released for the second half of Season 2:
As “Fear the Walking Dead” embarks on the second half of season two, the Clark, Manawa and Salazar families fracture. The events that took place at the Abigail compound have set all of our heroes adrift. Now they must forge their own paths to survive.
“Fear the Walking Dead” is executive produced by showrunner Dave Erickson, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert and stars Kim Dickens as Madison, Cliff Curtis as Travis, Frank Dillane as Nick, Alycia Debnam-Carey as Alicia, Mercedes Mason as Ofelia, Lorenzo James Henrie as Chris and Colman Domingo as Strand.
I definitely think the remaining half of Season 2 looks a lot more promising than the first half. The first half was full of ups and downs in terms of consistency, struggling to find its foundation. I’m really hoping that the second half lives up to its promising potential.
