What is happening in Fear the Walking Dead season 4?

The first half of season four began with one figure huddled around a campfire and ended with nine. Characters who started their journeys in isolation collided with each other in unexpected ways and found themselves in one of the last places they ever expected to be... together.

In the back half of the season they will explore who they are now – as individuals and as part of the greater group – and how they will forge ahead. They will find themselves pitted against new adversaries – human, walker, and even nature itself. Theirs will be a journey fraught with danger, love, heartbreak, loss, and ultimately, hope.
