“We were looking for a way to reinvent the show, and we’re gonna reset everyone in terms of apocalypse survival,” co-showrunner Andrew Chambliss said at San Diego Comic-Con. “Everyone’s kind of back to zero having to learn it all over again.”
It’s not just back to zero: Fear is ground zero of the nuclear zombie apocalypse. Season 6 ended with Teddy Maddox (John Glover) firing and then detonating ten warheads over Texas, turning the Lone Star State into a bomb-blasted wasteland that only a chosen few should have survived.
Among those still surviving in the fallout of Season 6 are Morgan (Lennie James) and Grace (Karen David), June (Jenna Elfman) and John Dorie Sr. (Keith Carradine), couple Dwight (Austin Amelio) and Sherry (Christine Evangelista), a locked-away Alicia Clark (Alycia Debnam-Carey), and a refashioned Victor Strand (Colman Domingo).
“We’re dealing with multiple nuclear warheads that have detonated across the landscape. It’s gonna change everything,” teased co-showrunner Ian Goldberg at Comic-Con. “It’s gonna change the walkers, it’ll change how our characters navigate the world outside where, in a lot of cases, the air is not breathable unless through a gas mask. Resources are going to be more scarce, and we’ll also see that it’s going to, as with any new apocalypse, bring about a whole new brand of human adversary as well that will challenge our group. It’s a whole new world in a lot of different ways.”
