Fear The Walking Dead season 6 was an absolute journey. The best season of the show to date, beating out even some of the seasons of The Walking Dead. The whole thing ended with a bang, literally, as nukes dropped on the world of The Walking Dead. Now, season 7 is an anthology series. Or, closer to one anyway.
Going forward, our heroes will have to deal with more than just zombies and other humans. Now they have to deal with living in a literal nuclear wasteland, too. If you thought the world of The Walking Dead sucked before, man, it really sucks now.
Since the season ended, showrunners Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg have said the show will continue to be more of an anthology series in season 7. Recently they spoke with Entertainment Weekly, where they said:
“I can say that we were very excited about the new form the show took in the anthology format in Season 6, with telling more concentrated characters’ stories. That will continue into Season 7. We will continue to tell the show in that structure, and in that format. That excites us, because like in Season 6, we’re going to get to see a variety of different kinds of stories, different tones, different worlds within the episodes themselves, and we’ve been really happy with how that’s been going so far. Look forward to sharing it.”
At the very least this should stop the show from becoming stale, which is hard to complain about. This new world will be one with even fewer resources and bigger dangers. We really have no idea what to expect from this new world.
“We really are creating a new world. The new show is going to look very different, the walkers are going to look very different. Everything is going to feel much more heightened, so we’re really excited about that. At the same time, in terms of the character stories, I think there’s going to be a lot of really interesting stuff ahead.” Chambliss said about this new, dangerous world. He went on to add, “I think people will find that some characters, as we saw with Victor Strand in that tower at the end of [the Season 6 finale], he’s in a place where he may be able to thrive. Whereas other characters like Morgan, outside the submarine with Grace, and the baby are perhaps going to find themselves in places that are almost impossible to live in. It’s the differences between how characters are able to survive that is really going to drive a lot of the conflict, going forward.”
Fear The Walking Dead will be back later this year on AMC, and we can’t wait!
